Christmas Stocking {52 Quilt Block Pick Up}

Christmas Stocking {52 Quilt Block Pick Up}

For one of my quilt groups Christmas party we are exchanging christmas stockings.  I was thinking that it would be a perfect project to dig around in the orphan quilt block drawer and find a few blocks that would be just perfect for the layout of the stocking.

I went with 2 quilt blocks.  One was already cut into for ornaments, the other showed off this american beauty with a corner placement.  I simple sewed the two together so they were tall enough for the template.  I moved the template around until I figured out how to get those points shooting off from the heal.

After the placement was perfect, I cut it out. I found a co-ordinating fabric for the back {nothing fancy, no quilt blocks} and for the lining.

Following these instructions — I didn’t add any vintage hankies though.  I thought that the quilt blocks themselves had enough interest in them to not worry about any additional embellishments.
