Christmas stockings


Since the first stocking worked, I went home last night, eager to get started again.

I went straight to my sewing room and got a few stocking fronts pieced as you can see above!  Thanks goodness for an understanding husband and leftovers!

The fabrics I am using, have been collected the last couple years.  Most of it is Layer Cakes and Jelly Rolls from  Moda and Maywood in shades of green, red and browns. Here are a few photos to give you an idea. 

I've been using strips cut 1 1/4 inch wide and trying to stay with squares and strips. It's a fun challenge!

If you have made quilted stockings before, please share your ideas!   

I'm thinking take out pizza this evening..........

Happy holiday quilting!
