First String Stockings

If you are a regular reader, you are probably thinking I am a one trick pony lately.  Football, football, football...
 
You are right.
 
So one last football / Christmas project (you are saying, "it's January, Carla...").  I'm only a month behind.  I'm thinking, "not bad."  I am more prepared for next Christmas than I was for this last one.   lol
 
This is my project for:
 
 
NFL stockings - First String

These stockings are for two of my favorite NFL football fans - my kids.
 
 
 
They love it when the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs play each other and they try to attend the game together.
 
I had a ton of scraps from making this quilt and this quilt.  When Kim over at Persimon Dreams announced the new season for Project Quilting and it was string quilts, I new it was my chance to make these stockings that have been in the back of my mind for a while.
 
 
I string pieced these on batting and then lined them and string pieced a cuff for the top.  I also made sure to make a big loop for hanging.
 
I've started the year with a little scrap busting with this challenge, too.  YEAH ME!
 
 
A complete finish with labels.
