Christmas Tree Paper Pieced Stocking

Getting into the spirit of Christmas anyone? Well here is an adorable paper pieced Christmas tree stocking where I found the pattern in the December 2008 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. Instructions were quite clear. The tree in the center of the stocking is decorated with a felt star and bulbs that are connected to embroidered strings. The star has blanket stitching around it. The binding is a delightful red and green stripe.

The background fabric and binding is from the Christmas Paper Doll fabric line made by Windham Fabrics. The fabric can by purchased at fabric.com except for the Christmas Tree fabric is only available with a cream background. Rivercityquilts.com does have the black Christmas tree fabric available at their online store. If you should visit Windham Fabrics you will find a free downloadable quilt pattern using the Paper Doll Fabric.

The quilt shown here is one I designed myself using the Paper Doll Fabric. Isn't is adorable? I made it for a fundraising auction and it sold for $200.00! The pockets below are filled with outfits and hats! Every little girl will love dressing those dollies. Actually, I wouldn't mind having a quilt for myself to use for decorating purposes and allowing the little girl to come out of me.

Jewelry Cinch Bags and Eight Minute Potholders

What fun making these fabulous jewelry cinch bags. Just fill the inset pockets with earrings or petite necklaces and fill the center with larger pieces of jewelry. These will make great Christmas gifts. Is anyone thinking Christmas yet? Also, pictured is an eight minute potholder that was gifted by one of my quilting friends in the Quilters Passion Group on Eons.
