Country Quilt Stocking

Remember. It’s a “primitive” style country quilt stocking. The snowman and candy cane are from “301 Country Christmas Quilt Blocks” by Mary Jo Hiney. The book is fabulous and has a ridiculous number of fantastic Christmas patterns (santas, angels, stars, Christmas trees, cats with halos, you name it). The stocking pattern is Butterick 5783. There’s a review at patternreview.com.

So, emphasis on primative, I machine pieced a main motif surrounded by scraps of solid fabric and hand quilted (obviously) around the central image and used small bells to tie quilt at the scrap joins. The fabric is cotton as is the batting. The finished stocking is cuter than I expected.
It’s for my niece. I hope she likes it!

One thought on “Country Quilt Stocking

  1. do you have a website for other Christmas stockings? I am trying to match stockings I bought 10 years ago… having a hard time.
