Deckade the Halls Quilt Along

I am keeping up with my version of the "Deck-ade the Halls" quilt along. These are my stocking blocks which turned out okay, but I have to admit that they were kind of tricky to make. I made a couple of cutting errors, which took a while to figure out. One of the errors I fixed by adding a red band on the stocking cuff, and I like it even better than before...
so yah, that's right, I meant to do it that way!!
Then I constructed the entire block incorrectly... nope, that doesn't look right? It probably would be easier to sew if I actually followed the instructions!!  But it was easy peasy to fix.
Anyway...the stockings are done and they are sweet. 
Next I will be cutting for the presents blocks. This has been a really fun sew along and I am so delighted to be using up all this old stash! You can check out all the group photos from the quilt-along on the Deckade the Halls Flickr page.

    Very cute stockings, Kathy, and I like the darker stripe on the cuff, too! See, that never would have happened had you followed instructions! *LOL*
