2013 Quilt Show - Part 8

Crazy Christmas Stockings
Created by Debby
A few years ago I decided to make five Christmas stockings for each of my family members.  Crazy can take lots of TIME!!  Three years later, only two Christmas stockings have been completed...I'm still unsure if I'm going to start the next three???   The stocking on the left is quite masculine with all of the dark colours and I couldn't complete a lot of crazy on this stocking as the fabrics are too busy.  Let's just see how many I complete before Christmas this year. 
After finishing the black quilt I needed to make a happy Christmas here it is, on the right.  I love the colours and I was able to do a lot more crazy and embroidery on this one because of the white fabrics used.  A lot more playing for me with this stocking.  Thanks Jenny for your patience and inspiration.
