Patchwork Christmas Stocking Remix {Fat Quarter Shop Fun}

Today I am participating in the Fat Quarter Shop's "pattern remix" for their Patchwork Christmas Stocking pattern!

For my stockings, I used the same instructions with the exception that the pieced and quilted part of my stocking uses slightly larger quarter square triangles made from charm squares rather than half square triangles.

For my fabrics, I used an older set of 5" squares from my stash featuring the older Amanda Murphy line, Nordic Holiday. My background fabric is from her Twinkle line.

Instead of using fusible fleece, I used scrap batting and quilted my stocking front.

I quilted it with meanders and snowflakes. I then used the template to trim my stocking front to size.

For the rest of the fabric of the stocking, I used some scrap flannel that I had on hand.

I used half of another charm square for the hanging loop. Finishing this up was pretty easy -- despite my trepidation about three-dimensional sewing!

My husband has given his stamp of approval and so I have been tasked with making another matching stocking, as well as two mini stockings for our rabbits!
