Here is the pattern for the Christmas bauble, just as promised!
I've posted my grid notes, not very pretty but here are the basics:
Fabric Selection: Select 4 colors 1FQ background, 1/8th or less for ornament, ornament stripe, and a scrap of gold or silver for the "hanger"
Cut Background Fabric: 4 - 2.5 inch squares, 2 - 2.5x12.5 inch strips, 1 - 2.5x8.5 inch strip, 2 - 3.5x2.5 inch brick, 1 - 2.5x1.5 inch brick
Cut Ornament Fabric: 2 - 8.5x3.5 inch bricks
Cut Ornament Stripe Fabric: 1 - 8.5x2.5 inch brick
Cut Ornament hanger: 1 - 2.5x1.5 inch brick
Step One: Sew 2.5x1.5 background fabric to 2.5x1.5 hanger fabric top to bottom. Sew 3.5x2.5 bricks to either side of the hanger brick.
Step Two: Sew two 8.5x3.5 Ornament bricks to 8.5x2.5 Ornament stripe brick
Step Three: Take the four 2.5 inch squares, place them right sides together on each corner of the ornament square. Sew across each square, corner to corner. Be sure to get this step right, make a light pencil line if necessary because this step is critical.
Step Four: Press open the four corners. Be sure this step looks like a bauble before you cut the excess fabric off the back.
Step Five: Sew the 'Hanger Brick' from step one to the 'Ornament Square' from Step four. Be sure the stripe goes horizontal in this step. Then sew the 2.5x8.5 background brick to the bottom of the ornament square.
Step Six: Sew one 2.5x12.5 inch strips to either side of the ornament. Press and enjoy!
