Making the best of a snowstorm...................

As you may know, the Midwest got hit with some snow and a lots of wind this weekend.  I kind of appreciated the unexpected time to work on my Christmas stockings and catch up with decorating the house for Christmas!  

Here are the remaining 5 of the 8 stocking fronts I now have pieced-Yea!!  Since I'm putting so much work into them, I decided that I may as well strive to make them all unique, using 1 1/4 inch wide strips for the base cut shape. It was a challenge, but I was so happy with them when I got this far.

Now for the finishing work! Does anyone have suggestions for applying the names?  I thought about fusible, but I'm not looking forward to cutting them out.  

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

Happy Quilting!  Diane, Assistant Editor
