Maybe you’re blessed, like me, with many inherited quilts, but you don’t quite know what to do with them once they’re past usability. Here’s a great idea. Rather than let a once-beautiful quilt sit unused in a hallway closet (or worse, boxed up in the attic), rework it into a set of Christmas stockings for your family. Just follow our simple instructions to turn those tattered treasures into beloved holiday keepsakes.
