This one could not wait until Christmas, though. My brother requested stockings for his family. And everyone knows those have got to be hanging up by Christmas Eve at the latest.
I was inspired by a stocking pattern in issue 14 of Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine.
I loved making these little fussy-cut star blocks. The cuteness is almost unbearable. I might need to do an entire Christmas quilt using blocks like these. But, first, I'm definitely going to have to add to my novelty Christmas fabric collection.
So, that's it- one family's gift already gifted, unwrapped and hung by the mantel with care.
