Would you like to learn how I created this fabric?

I will share how I created this soon...I'm putting together a quick little video on my process.  Stay tuned for that.

A while back I mentioned here on the blog that I had been working on something that was for my quilt guild. Each year my guild issues a challenge and we make an item with a challenge fabric and share it at our annual Christmas party. Last night was that party.  

We were to make a Christmas stocking with a piece of fabric we were given. We could use any pattern and make it any size. I decided to draft my own pattern. The design elements on the stocking are fused with Mistyfuse and then I zigzag stitched the edges. One of the red fabrics in this is the challenge fabric. There were so many wonderful stockings hanging at the guild party last night and I'm so pleased to tell you that my stocking was voted as the favorite. I even won a prize! I received a gift certificate for my local quilt shop and I can't wait to go shopping.
