Christmas Past Challenge

Last Christmas my small quilt group had a challenge.  It involved paper-piecing.  I hate paper-piecing.  So I cheated.  The "block" that was supposed to be paper-pieced is the represented by the 4 areas of the quilt stitched in red thread that make up sort of a star.  I didn't paper-piece them but rather just stitched the resulting block design.  The center of the quilt is a Christmas doily I pulled from my stash.  For the berries I went one step further and glued red glitter on them.  It was a fun challenge and one that I can enjoy the results of year after year.
