Heirloom Stockings

I made these stockings and ornaments last year for someone at work.

Joy's Ornaments and Stockings

Someone new has been added to the family so here is this year’s stocking:

Last year I found it very difficult to cut into a treasured quilt. However it was tattered beyond repair in many places and this really was a lovely way to keep and share the quilt with many family members.
