Stocking Treats block eight

Block number eight is from Julie Zaloudek, the second place winner in our Bunny Hill/Moda design contest!

Block Eight

Julie’s design is the reason you have that tiny ric rac in your embellishment kit! When I saw how she had used it in her design I knew we had to duplicate it. She’s stitched around the ric rac with red embroidery floss for the cutest accent. Here’s her block added to our quilt…

And here it is duplicated in our fabric, Sugar Plum Christmas…

Julie’s original design had a fabric square behind the stocking. I LOVED the look it added and it would be darling for an individual project. She accented the square with red floss and then added a little pom pom trim to the cuff.

 So now that I’ve brought up the idea of the individual projects, here are some simple ideas for you…

 

These are easy projects that you can make in a day.  Think about your Christmas list and get started early!

Have a wonderful time sewing Julie’s cute block.   I’ll be back next Friday with block number nine!

  • Karen - This is such a sweet stocking! I have a special love for Gingerbread Men–I’m told it was my favorite book when I was a toddler and insisted on having it read to me so many times that I memorized it. Thanks for the project ideas!ReplyCancel
