QUILTED STOCKINGS

This is my first attempt at making a quilted stocking.  I like the way it turned out but I'm going to make it again and change a few things.  I used a piece of fabric, Fairy Frost by Michael Miller, which I like a lot.  The only color I had it in was white.  Again, I like it but I think a color like red, green, or blue would be more interesting and festive.  I also used a Christmas print for the backing and next time I'm going to use either a plain white or another plain colored fabric.  I used a glide thread and the pattern is from Sweet Dreams Quilt Studio.  Making these will be the easy (and cheap) part; filling them, now that's another story.  This year I'm making the granddaughters' stockings.  Next year, I'll make them for the rest of the family.  I put several things in this one and now it's on its way to Japan.  Hope she gets it before Christmas!
