Faith Quilt Block and Pattern

This is the Faith Quilt Block.  This pattern has been in my Etsy shop for a while.  I recently decided to make another block with it.  

This pattern is written for fusible applique, but could easily be adapted to other styles of applique.  What's your favorite?

Sometimes I enjoy making bias stems, but in this case, as the stem is one big circle, I used fusible applique for it, too.

The circle stem and the four flowers fused to the background.

Arranging the leaves.

Fusing the leaves in place.

Centering and fusing the ladybug in place.

After everything is fused in place, I used matching thread to secure the edges of each patch with a small zigzag stitch.

Zigzagging around the stem and leaves.

Stitching around more leaves.

And more leaves...

Stitching around the flower petals with red thread.

Stitching the flower centers with yellow orange thread.

And finally, stitching around the ladybug and all her parts.
