Only 4 1/2 of these blocks are hand appliqued. I started machine appliqueing them on the fifth block. I wasn't having much fun hand appliqueing them and wasn't finishing it fast enough for me. I am having so much fun machine appliqueing them!! Piecing out the fabrics are the best.
The other quesions was... the pattern. Yes, there is a pattern. It's called "Welcome to the North Pole" by Piece O' Cake Designs.
Only 3 more blocks to go. The top block is more like 2. It is huge and has santa in it flying his sled.
Happy sewing. Amy
