Friday Finish

I couldn't talk about this one before Christmas but I can now! 
 I made yet another Christmas stocking to join the other 2 I did last year for my nephew and his wife.  They had a beautiful baby girl and I got to make her a stocking to match her mama and papa's. 
 I got to work with my favorite blue and gold color combination (NOT).


I used the pattern found here to make it. 
 I always put off making things that are not quilts. 
They give me anxiety and I fret about how things will turn out. 
 I did the patchwork then laid out the stocking pattern to cut it out.


Here it is all cut out and ready to make.


I am really happy with how this turned out. 
 Although Katherine is a l-o-n-g name to fit on the front of a stocking! 
 I told them to name their next one a shorter name!! LOL

Here is her daddy's stocking


Her mama's stocking




And baby makes three!!


I'm linking  up to Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday.

All three stockings are gorgeous, but I am most impressed with how you managed to make Katherine's long name fit :-)
