Christmas Finishes

I hope that everyone that celebrates Christmas had a wonderful one! 
 I made a few gifts for Christmas gifts but was not able to share until they had been gifted.  
Then there was the whole I don't have time to post deal, but hey, I have some time right now
 before I begin my running around for the day.

First up, I made a little quilt that I still can't show yet, but I will tell you it has that soft, fuzzy fabric in it. 
 I showed it to my DD2 and she fell in love with it. 
 I was happy to hear that because I used some fuzzy fabric to make her a throw for her couch!  


She is finishing up her Master's at NC State. 
 I found some NC State fabric and put this little quilt together.
The fun part is that they are the Wolf Pack and I found wolf paw prints to use for the quilting! 
 The red fuzzy did show through on the white in the quilting a little bit
 but since this will just be used for a couch quilt I think it will be just fine, she loved it! 
 This fabric is the soft and comfy from JAF. 
 The other fuzzy fabric I used was Snuggles from Moda and
 I LOVED working with the Snuggles so much more!


The other finish I had were these Christmas stockings I was consigned to make
 for my nephew and his new wife. 
 I used the same fabric to make their stockings that I used to make their wedding quilt.  
Both stockings came from free patterns found at Maywood Studios.  
There are 2 other different ones, which I printed out so I can make two different ones later.


Matt's mom (my SIL) asked me while I was making their quilt. 
 So a few weeks before Christmas I made these. 
 I did put aside the fabric I used to make the cuffs and the letters to make future stockings,
 for when they have kids. 
 I put it with the patterns so everything is put together and ready when the time comes! 

This is Christmas morning when they received them.


I am happy that I can finally share these with you.

Love that red fabric!! I bought some Fuchsia Minky Cuddle from fabric.com recently for a quilt for Jade. Just wondering how much it will muck up my machine. I had it cleaned before Christmas:) Hoping not too much!

Beautiful stockings for a good looking couple!

That quilt is wonderful and the socks are fantastic. I really need to make me some socks for next year.
