My theme for the year is Christmas and I have featured a yummy looking Christmas pudding in my July block.
This is one of the smaller blocks in my quilt and it only measures 6" square.
Here's what the block looked like before I added the embroidery.
I think that my pudding turned out well. I used stem stitch for the pudding for some texture and used satin stitch for the icing for a smooth look. I added a few straight stitches in black to look like dried fruit.

In the bottom right hand corner, I did a scallop with back stitch and covered it with some detached blanket stitches. It gives a thicker garland band that I think looks really effective.
