Christmas Stockings – For Santa’s Nice List

What says Christmas like a beautiful personally made stocking stuffed with goodies?!  Here’s a few of the stocking patterns available.

Christmas Stockings 3

The 3 Christmas Stockings Pattern by Bonnie Sullivan of All Through The Night gives you a choice of snowmen, holly, or branches with ornaments.  Better yet, make all three.  Optional hanging “fringe” adds a little pizzazz.

 

Winter Star Stocking Quilt Pattern

 

Winter Star Stocking Pattern features a beautiful pieced star with lots of color options as the focal point.  The rest of the stocking is also pieced so this is a great pattern for scraps.  The top section is just a bit larger than the rest of the stocking so you can get that really stuffed look!

 

The Stockings Were Hung

The Stockings Were Hung pattern (another by Bonnie Sullivan) has a pieced body, and applique on the cuff.  A little hand embroidery is also part of the pattern.  These old fashioned looking stockings are a bit long – lots of room for goodies.

 

Snowman Stocking

 

 

Snowman Stocking is hanging out at night with his cardinal friend.  This adorable stocking is also available as a kit, with the pattern and all the fabric you’ll need to complete the project.

Stocking Ornaments

 

 

 

 

Make these Stocking Ornaments to hang on the tree, or sew up the window and hang them there. Cute either way!

Dress It Up – With Table Runners!

Whether it’s the seasons changing or the prospect of Thanksgiving company, it’s satisfying to add some style and personality to your rooms.  Table runners and table toppers are an easy way to do that.  They are usually quick projects and you can make a second one to use as a hostess gift.

TR Dining Delight

 

Dining Delight by D. Hall Designs comes with instructions for different sizes so you can choose the length you want.  The design is fairly simple, with just a few pieces, but the on-point setting and the pointed ends add interest.

 

 

TR Table Dressings

 

Table Dressings by Nelly of Artela Quilts is made of just a few large pieces. Nelly’s directions are clear and easy to follow. This pattern is perfect for showcasing a favorite medium to large scale print. And, bonus, it’s reversible! Two table runners in one! Two gifts in one!

 

TR Swing It 2

 

 

This one, Swing It!, looks a little complicated, but it’s not as hard as you might think!  Designs to Share With You has an easy quilt-as-you-go method for curves.  So, sew one up, and learn a new technique.

 

TR Table Talk Pattern

 

 

Table Talk is a fun little table runner with lots of visual interest.  You could rotate that center block a quarter turn and it would look like the dark blocks are tumbling down, back and forth, from top to bottom.

 

TR Roulette

 

 

The Roulette table topper uses off center log cabin blocks to create the illusion of curves. Designer Genii Lehmann says it looks great if you use 4 color gradations in one color family. I agree!

 

 

There are many more table runner patterns.  Choose one or two and start stitching.  You’ll be dressing up your tables before you know it!

Paper Piecing Patterns – Sew Satisfying!

Paper piecing takes just a little getting used to, but it is worth the effort to learn.  Like anything else, the more you do it, the more comfortable you will become with the process.  And the results will amaze you.  Sometimes you just can’t get the same results any other way.

Love Grows

If you are new to paper piecing, Love Grows is a great pattern for learning.  The flower, its greenery, and the flowerpot are paper pieced and easy enough for a beginner.  The rest of the pattern is traditional piecing.  When you are finished you will have a 14″ x 26″ wall hanging to gift or to hang onto so you can celebrate your new found passion for paper piecing!

 

coneflowers paper piecing quilt pattern

 

Not into bright? Although Coneflowers has a little more paper piecing than the previous pattern, it’s still easy enough, but looks complicated.  Impress your friends…. and yourself!

 

Sunset on Ellis Island

 

Ready to really jump in?  Go big!  Sunset on Ellis Island measures 43″ x 43″ and has a big WOW factor.  Nelly Vileikis of Artelas Quilts writes clear, easy to follow instructions.  Have fun with color on this one and create a beautiful wall hanging that you’ll be proud to show off.

 

Chickadee Treat

 

Want something on the small side?  MH Designs has dozens of paper piecing patterns in small to medium sizes.  Mary’s themes are varied and she usually packs a lot of detail into her designs.  Chickadee Treat is a 12″ x 13″ wall hanging.  She certainly captured the essence of Chickadees, didn’t she?!

 

Check out all the paper pieced patterns (also called foundation piecing). You’ll probably see several that you want to try!
