A few years ago I made some stockings for a client in Edmonton (blogged here
), and I had so much fun making them! When she received them, she had them custom embroidered with names on the cuff.
And then she returned the following year to ask that I make some Christmas quilts for her children's beds and supplied me with fabric panels and adorable gold and red reindeer fabric to make both the quilts and the matching pillowcases (blogged here
This year, they added another little person to their family and I am so pleased that they asked me to make a stocking and bed quilt for this new person!
|Piecing the Christmas Stocking|
I dug through my messy closet and found the cardboard template that I used for the original stockings and was so happy to see that I actually made some notes on what I did and how I put everything together. It made making a matching Christmas stocking much easier and when I went into my stash of Christmas fabrics, I found I still had squares cut to size in the same fabric line that I used originally. So this new stocking is going to look right at home hanging next to the original ones!
|Tada! Finished Christmas Stocking|
I love the fabric panels that were chosen for the bed quilt & matching pillowcase. And although the original red & gold reindeer border fabric wasn't available, the new fabric chosen (and supplied by the client) with the Christmas hobby horses was a great pick and worked well with the panels.
I am so happy to have finished these in plenty of time for holiday decorating season and would LOVE to see pictures of this client's Christmas house!
Love the quilts and scrappy stocking!ReplyDelete
