I am very pleased to be able to present the first completed stocking of my current Research Project:



I am pretty in love with the red/white/black color combination, even though it was a lot more challenging to pick out coordinating fabrics at Joann than I expected.  I think I'm ready to graduate to buying fabric at quilting stores Grin. I had originally planned for some of the fabrics to have a slightly more Christmas-y vibe, but again, I ended up going with what I could find.

The first stocking I quilted using this pattern just had randomly crossing quilted lines on the stocking back, like in the pictures I saw on the tutorial, but I wasn't crazy about the effect. This time, I went with all parallel segments of various widths, and I liked it a lot better.



At first, I was going to use a pretty red and white snowflake fabric for the lining, but after seeing how much red was in the stocking exterior, I changed my mind and went for a black lining to break everything up.



I absolutely love how both the stark black color and the geometric pattern contrast with the exterior fabrics.



Friendsmas is two weeks from tomorrow, so I will need to complete at least 1 stocking a week until then!  (I'd really like to get 3 more done total, but we'll see how it goes.)

Thanks for the clarifications!

tiamatfire -- GOOD GOLLY that knitted gingerbread house is amazeballs. Shocked I need one in my life.

The only thing I don't get about the koala mitten pattern is the woollen tie bit -- is that just a long strand of yarn stitched onto the top?

LovelyMiss - do you have any words of wisdom for those of us planning on making our own reusable kitchen towels?  They've been on my to-do list for a long time, and one of my crafty resolutions this year is to do a lot of fabric stash busting.  (Would you happen to have a pattern to share?  Or for the rice packs?)
