Another nice easy block, the stocking. Another one you could have lots of fun with fabric combinations. I have done one in blue and one in grey. I made a few before I was happy with the proportions so, I used a spare on the reverse of my quilt.
Seam Allowance: ¼”
Unfinished size: 10" x 15½"
Finished size (when sewn into your quilt): 9½” x 15”
Width x Height (cut one unless otherwise stated)
2¾" x 11"
7¼" x 3¾"
7¼" x 12"
2¾" x 7"
1. Add an easy triangle to the bottom right corner of the large grey piece with the 3½” square. Trim and press open.
2. Now you need your remaining grey and white pieces. Place the square at the bottom and the lager white piece at a right angle with the top of the grey piece. Sew at the angels as shown in the picture below. Draw your line first to help with accuracy.
3. Trim and press open.
4. Sew the blue cuff to the top of the main stocking.
5. Sew your two pieces together.
Your stocking is complete! Remember, you need two for your quilt and then just one more week of blocks before you start putting it all together.
This is block number 8 in my Christmas Block Along. For the previous blocks you can get to them here:
Week 3 - Sweet
I used one of my prototypes on the reverse of my quilt along with one of the labels on my Figo panel.
