Christmas Christmas Stockings Into the Woods fabric

By the Chimney with Care Stocking Pattern

YAAAAYYYY! The day is finally here!

I’m totally excited to finally show you the sweet rustic stocking pattern I designed for American Patchwork & Quilting called By the Chimney with Care. If you know me well, you know that I absolutely adore making stockings and love an excuse to make more every year. When I designed Into the Woods, I imagined a woodland set of stockings. Never did I imagine I’d get to make them for such an amazing publication!

I suppose the reds/mint greens from my Into the Woods fabric collection would have been an obvious choice for Christmas stockings, but I just couldn’t help myself with the soft chocolate browns and sweet pinks.

Look for this stocking pattern in the newly released December 2014 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting:

A big thanks to everyone at American Patchwork & Quilting for being so wonderful to work with! I have been a fan of this publication for a very long time and it is a dream to be a part of it at last.

One more thing–don’t forget about the 20% discount in my shop using the promo code MODALOVE at checkout–today (9/30/14) is the last day it will be valid.

    I downloaded the patern: By the Chimney with Care from the Allpeople quilt website. I love the pattern and plan on making them for my great nieces and nephews. I am a bit confused on the directions. There does not happen to be a template for the triangle, so I have no idea how large to make it, using the 2 1/2 x 21″ strips. Also it states to add 9 1/2 ” to the top edge of the stocking pattern. This does not seem correct with my measurements. Also, it will only be, at the widest boot 10″ not 11 1/4″ and the length will be short. This is according to the template pieces measurements. Can you please help? Thank you
