My quilting buddy, Mary and I have agreed to make the Advent Quilt. It takes 25 stockings, so each month we'll make two identical stockings and then swap one stocking.
Of course our decision to launch into this project required much critical discussion about fabric choices, with requisite visits to more than one quilt shop. You can see we're both engaged and committed to the task at hand!
Mary and I will use the same background fabric and base our stocking fabric choices on colors in one multi-colored focus print. That's so we (mostly me) can use up accumulated Christmas prints. By making a sample stocking (at left), we both had a clearer picture of the block size, and the scale of prints that could be used.
We're both excited to share and work on this project. I'll keep you posted about how we progress.
