Christmas Stockings with Island Batik
The Challenge for Island Batik Ambassadors this month is to create Christmas stockings. In May our challenge was to make a quilt using triangles and I had some left. The fabric in my triangle finish was a beautiful bundle of Wondrous designed by Jerry Khiev. You can see more about the fabric and quilt here.
Some of the products featured on this site were provided to me free of charge by Island Batik, Hobbs Batting, Aurifil , AccuQuilt, ByAnnie and Schmetz Needles.
Triangles turned crazy patches
The triangles were cut previously using the AccuQuilt Companion Set die 13 which saved a lot of time.
Because my triangles were already sewn together the only thing I had to do was cut my stocking and and cuff. The AccuQuilt Stocking die made that task quick and accurate.
I have been dying to try out the newest addition to my sewing room, a Babylock Jazz 2 with a variety of stitches.
Aurifil thread is included in at least one Island Batik shipment each year. For this project I chose white thread because I wanted the stitches to be seen.
Hobbs Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Fusible Cotton/Poly Blend Batting is perfect for quilting off the frame. It kept the top of my project from shifting while stitching and added enough fluff to make me smile.
For this stocking there is no batting in the cuff.
Cedar trees are wonderful as Christmas tree’s, they smell so delightful when the lights begin to warm up. But, this one is just too big to do anything with except use for hanging my stocking and providing a little shade.
A second one too, although I am not sure what collection this fabric is from only that there was enough for this one stocking. To it I added a single snowflake. You can find the AccuQuilt die here. There is also a free embroidery file for the snowflake with purchase of the die.
Next month I will sharing more stockings for an AccuQuilt campaign so be sure to stop back.
Hi Denise, what lovely Christmas stockings! The decorative stitch between the triangles are a lot of fun. Take care.
Thank you again.
