Be Still-another ShuboxFabrixSeries quilt

This little quilt is a gem...colorwise, for sure! The needlework inset was a rescue, and the rest of the fabrics came from my ShuboxFabrix collection. Whipped out a number of Christmas stockings for our quilt guild. They made over 400 stockings last year for a group, and I guess this is the same group. That's the kind of info that just sort of whizzes in one ear and out the other. I thought it would be fun to make some, and it was. Good job they got us started earlier this year. It's really just two pieces of Christmas fabric cut out in the shape of a stocking with a pinking shears and sewn together. What I discovered is that I actually own a never-used rotary "pinker", and surprisingly enough, it works on curves. Who knew!

What a beautiful way to rescue this counted cross stitch.
