Quilted Stockings!

Made new stockings on Sunday and finished them up last night!!  I'm pretty pleased with them....I've never been happy with my ability to quilt up letters, so the cuffs aren't my favorite, but I can always change them down the road.  For now it works and my kids like them ;o)

I only have time to post pictures today....no details, to much last minute quilts to do, but I think the pictures explain what I did and how I did it....pretty well......


I got this quilting idea from Judi, with Green Fairy Quilts....thanks Judi!
 


















Very BRIGHT...but fun.  I did up the green ones for the boys and let them pick their favorite and the girls picked out there design before I quilted them up.  Still haven't had a chance to quilt up my Christmas quilt...but maybe that will be my Christmas Eve activity.

I love your stockings!!!! I love how you personalized each one. They are all a little different and they look like a wool textured sock on line.

Elle said...

I am in total awe! I just love these so much, and I wish I had the ability to quilt like that! I suddenly desperately want a long arm machine with a stitch regulator, because I know I could never do that free-motion on my little machine (though I'm inspired to start trying!)
Major wow!

These are wonderful. I have a sock to make for a teanage boy and have been racking my brain for ideas that aren't girly or too juvinal. This will be great, a good way to practicse free motion with a purpose. Thankyou so much for sharing.
