Victorian Crazy Quilt Christmas Stocking

While digging through my boxes of stash, and raiding my studio closet stash, I found this item along with the crocheted pot holder. It was in a box hidden behind bolts of fabric. Inside were the neck ties that I had gathered and a Victorian Christmas Crazy Quilt Stocking that I had started in '86. Memories came flooding back on working this stocking as I had so much fun with it.

 The stocking patches are all done in vintage silk ties and velvet. This was my first piece done in crazy quilting, and not bad for a beginner. Just wish I would have seen the 'big picture' and embroidered the seams before I put it together!
