Bucilla Kit Finishes

 This week I decided to get a few things finished and
off of the pile of things waiting.
Two of these things are Bucilla felt kits.
The felt tops have been finished for a while 
and were patiently waiting for the rest of the project.

First up was the stocking for my granddog, Tucker.

If you follow me you know that I make a quilted
stocking for these kits.  The felt backing just will not work
with the things we cram into stockings at my house.

The quilt sandwich was made, cut by using the
felt backing piece as a pattern (and adding about 1/2")
and then stitched and bound.
The binding for this stocking was challenge
because of the bone shape at the top.

The felt front was stitched to the quilted stocking
and is ready to fill!

The other Bucilla kit I finished is the 
Snow People tree for my daughter and son-in-law.

Here's the finished front.
The kit had a piece shaped like the tree for the back
and required using either cardboard or foam core
to keep the tree from bending.

That did not sound fun to me, so I decided to make
a small quilt and stitch the tree to it.

I love how this finished!

The quilt is just plain white fabric bound in a green
Christmas print.
The tree is hand stitched to the quilt
and ready to hang.

These are now ready for Christmas!

Happy Quilting!

Love both of your finishes. Mounting the snow people on a quilt was a good idea.
