I love the process of the acrylic template for this Twisted Sisters quilt, but I must have been distracted because some of the blocks did not match up and that bugged me so I just kept moving the quilt around the house in an unfinished state. Eventually, I took apart old Christmas stockings my mother had made and given to our son. He didn't want them so I sewed them over the mismatched squares. Next, I added embroidered names of each family member (also from the discarded Christmas stockings). I finished the quilt with machine embroidery and we had the perfect Christmas gift for Mom. I had the last laugh because the Christmas stockings were back at her house!
