Using 1/4" seam allowances sew gold and print triangles together, then red and print triangles together.
Sew together each gold/print unit to a red/print unit to make 4 blocks.
Assemble 4 blocks as shown.
Cut out a boot shape with rounded toe and square heel from the pieced front. *Lay the green fabric under the front with right side down.
Cut out two of the same boot shape from both the light colored fabric and the quilt batting as shown. Note: Make sure boot is facing in correct direction before you cut fabrics.
Layer boot front onto batting and light colored backing. Baste together, then starting in center, quilt in desired pattern toward sides of stocking. Layer boot back onto batting and backing, baste and quilt as desired.
Baste sides of stocking front and back together, face of fabric facing out.
Bind around sides and bottom of stocking using green fabric.
To finish, sew a strong hanger, (a loop of cord or trimming works well), inside the top of the boot.
