Hi everyone! We are pleased as punch to present this special tutorial video to you today! It still feels like Summer to us in Texas, but October and November have a way of zooming by, so it is high time for us to prepare for Christmas. Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life is just one of our most favorite quilting peeps, and on her last visit to our studio, she showed us how to make the Patchwork Christmas Stocking, a classic red and white pieced Christmas stocking with a folded cuff and hanger. Anything beyond a simple bag is outside our usual patchwork-y realm, so we loved seeing her create this stocking from start to finish.
And, if you are a huge Sherri & Chelsi fan like we are, you will be happy to know that their newest fabric line Creekside has just arrived! Stay tuned, because we have lots of quilty goodness in Creekside coming at you very soon. But for today, sit back and enjoy Sherri’s video on how to make this sweet stocking.
It doesn’t take much to get started. Here’s all you need:
- 3/4 yard for Half Square Triangles, Cuff & Lining (in the video, Sherri uses Bella Solids Bleached White PFD 9900-97)
- 5/8 yard for Half Square Triangles and Stocking Hanger (in the video, Sherri uses Bella Solids Betty’s Red 9900-123)
Then, grab the free Patchwork Christmas Stocking template and hit play!
Thanks for joining us today, and thanks to Sherri for filming this wonderful project with us! Let us know what you think in the comments below. How many stockings will you make, and what color is your Christmas?
