1. Knit a set of Christmas stocking. We have a pattern that is kind of a tradition on my side of the family.
2. Make them a wedding quilt in their wedding colors.
It breaks my heart but while I was making the stockings and quilt I couldn't find my camera so I took all the pictures on my phone...Now that phone is out of commission and I can't get any of those pictures. While all pictures of the stockings are lost to the world I did get some completed shots of the quilt.
I used this free pattern from Amy Butler. Here is what hers looks like...
And here it is in Katie's colors. I don't remember the exact finished measurements but it fits a queen sized bed.
It was too small so I added 16 squares and doubled the border.
The best part was that I machine quilted it myself! Field of Fabrics is a quilt shop that has a machine that they let people use after they take a lesson learning how to operate the machine. It is really fun and I've already gone back with another project, but that is a post for another day!
Scott and Katie were married for time and all eternity on Saturday May 7. 2011 in the Oakland California Temple.
