Show and Tell: Christmas patterns!

The very best thing about writing patterns is seeing what people create from them.

I am working on our own stockings this weekend (because, as we all know, the cobbler’s children have no shoes). I thought I’d settled on my fabric picks, until I saw the photo above posted on Flickr. Kelly picked the most awesome fabrics and I am head over heels crazy for how she added her nephew’s name. Isn’t it cute?

Just check out what she did on the back!

Did you see the little snowflakes she stitched on it? Talk about an amazing gift!

Lisa, a fellow Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild member, made these stellar stockings. She used dupioni silk and did an amazing job- silk is not easy to sew. (Hint if you decide to try it: before any cutting, fuse the back of your silk to some woven fusible interfacing like Pellon SF101. Nothing should fray on you.) Lisa didn’t use interfacing, so I bow down to her and her mom. They did incredible work.

Lisa added some stitching like Melissa, a tester did. Check out those beautiful stitches!

Debbie made this fantastic tree skirt. Her color choices are fun and non-traditional. I really like the green and the teal together! She’s blogged about her tree skirt here.

And those buttons? Are you kidding me? How cool are these!?

    Thanks, Shea, for featuring my tree skirt. The fact that you like it makes my day! What a great pattern – it went together like a breeze, and I love that it buttons!

    FYI – Kelly got her pattern from me! It’s the one you gave me at Market, and she won it as a door prize at our guild meeting. :)
