Christmas Stocking Hang Out

It's time to join the fun at the Quilting Lines Christmas Stocking Hang Out, where Patricia is hosting a linky party for all of us quilty types to hang out some stockings we've made, perhaps share a tutorial or two, and admire the gorgeous creations of all the other participants!

So far, I've only made three quilted Christmas stockings and they were completed around 15 years ago.  All were constructed based on a pattern called Jingle Socks from The Thimbleberries Book of Quilts by Lynette Jensen.  I loved them, and still do, because of their country farmhouse feel.  My favorite part of creating these was doing the handquilting with perle cotton - so simple and effective.  Below are photos of two of the three stockings.  I had cut out fabric for five stockings, and somewhere in my stash of UFO's should be the pieces to complete the remaining two ... perhaps next year!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's stockings and any tutorials that happen along the way, and hope to make stockings for all the grandkids next year.  Thanks to Patricia at Quilting Lines for hosting this Linky Party!
