Stockings, anyone?

I just love these patchwork stockings. They were simple to do and quick with all the quilting done by machine.
Here is the layout that was used to make them up. Browsing through my 2-1/2” squares was easy pickings and my selection came together quickly. Whatever colour was missing, my stash came to the rescue and more 2-1/2” strips were cut to add to my bins of cut pieces for future needs.

The names were hand quilted in. Originally, they were to be done by embroidery, but this way was faster to do.

Have a great day!

I've made some Christmas stockings - it's a great way to use up lots of small bits of Christmas fabric you have.
The ones you have made look really good.

The stockings are really cute! They will add a nice decorative look and are roomy enough to be filled with lots of goodies.

Super, super cute! Love those stockings! If our family tradition didn't call for knit ones -- I'd really have to think about some quilted ones!
