The Stocking Quilt

I finally took the time today to sandwich the "High Strung" quilt from "Tis the Season".  If you would like to preview the book go to this website and click on the picture to enlarge it.

I used my table instead of the floor for the last quilt I sandwiched and it worked pretty well. So I used it again today. It does save my knees (getting up and down off of the floor) but it still causes some lower back pain. But I can live with it. As I finish one area, I just stretch the next area, clamp it to the table, and add pins.

Hmmm. I guess it could be a tablecloth.

This book has so many cute Christmas ideas. I just want to make them all. But I think my next project out of it will be the large pillow on the front cover. I'm thinking this quilt will look so cute hanging on the wall with the pillow on the bed beneath it.

Kelsey played the piano at a friend's wedding yesterday. It was lovely, as usual. It's funny I didn't cry at Craig and Becca's wedding (even though I thought Becca would get teary eyes saying the vows--but she didn't) but I almost did yesterday. I think it's the church atmosphere and hearing Kelsey play the piano so beautifully.

Hopefully, I'll start quilting on this quilt tonight. We'll see. 

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. Oh, this is so pretty! You're doing a terrific job with it. Enjoying summer break?!?! :)

  2. Love the stockings. It will be a fun quilt to have up during the holidays.
