I finished up another stocking using this great pattern. I'm really happy with it...plus it went together so much faster than my hexagon version (don't get me wrong...I loved paper piecing the hexagons...but it did take some time)! I'm out of the white on white background fabric from 12 Days of Christmas, but the tonal white dots from Bliss worked out perfectly for a background fabric!
I found some other fabric in my stash that worked perfectly for lining...the red and green polka dot on white is from Winter by Minick and Simpson--I think it was a line that was out about 2 years ago...but the colors went perfectly with 12 Days! Oh, and I used this tutorial to finish this stocking with no seams showing anywhere!
I think they make a nice pair--some quilted stockings might be in order for our home, too! Back to sewing...I'll be back on Monday with a giveaway!
