More quilt projects, work in progress

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

So being work in process Wednesday, I have a lot of things started. Apparently, I still have more in me even after the craft fair last week.

I am in the process making the family Christmas Stockings based on their fabric choices.

My first Christmas stocking made

I was inspired by all these people posting the Christmas stockings they had made, so with my new-found sewing skills I made a stocking for my 5-year-old. He chose the colors blue and green; even though his favorite color is orange.

I showed him the fabrics for sign off – which included orange. I loved what LC did in her blog with the squares, so I used that idea and the pattern (just the shape) she mentioned in the blog (“Amy at Diary of a Quilter did for Art Gallery’s Fat Quarter Gang Series“). I did included binding around the top.

Here is how it turned out – we really like it. The front:BlueGreenOrangeChristmasStocking

The Back:BackBlueGreenOrangeStocking

The inside:StockingInside

Now, it looks much better than our other $5 felt ones we have from Target, that I am making two more so they whole family will have one. As I finish those up I will post them.

Husband’s color combination will be Orange, Yellow and Brown (earthy tones). My color choses are teal and red.
