I wrote this particular pattern in 2011 and it is one of several that I have written. I was inspired to quilt by my late grandmother over 25 years ago. She and I designed and traditionally quilted over 20 quilts until her passing in 2004. It took me a few years to get back into quilting, but when I returned I discovered rag quilting and learned so much from online rag quilting groups. From there I started writing the patterns and with the help from a graphic designer, we created several rag quilting patterns with great illustrations. I have sold hundreds of copies of this pattern online (at this price) and the only complaints I have ever had were that there are no color pictures. It is in black and white, but it gets the job done. It is copyrighted as well, so please do not resell or share your purchased copy. You may, however, make as many rag quilted Christmas Stockings with my pattern to sell as you wish. Thank you so much for liking my pattern! I hope you enjoy it for years to come!
