Christmas stocking for my cardiologist husband. (Pattern specifics for both hearts and stocking are at the end of this post)
I did not get this stocking made in time to hang it on the mantel for Christmas. Does having it done by Valentine’s Day count for anything? This was the project I worked on during “Snowzilla” – 24 inches of snow in DC. (It kind of felt like Christmas!)
I marked the sewing lines on all of these squares.
I sewed across all 3 corners without removing from the machine – just pivoted.
Chain piecing made the project go faster.
The finished hearts are very boxy until you sew them together which produces the more rounded looking hearts.
Voila! I now have 2 stockings made. These happen to be for the oldest and youngest members of my family. 5 more to go. Maybe there will be another snow storm!?!
The heart directions are from a mini quilt tutorial by Jera of Quilting in the Rain.
The Christmas Stocking pattern by Fons and Porter can be found here. They are a great size – almost 2 feet long!
