I'm using 6" blocks from both years of the Lucky Stars Block of the Month Club, and assorted solids and small scale prints in fun mid-century modern Christmas colors of aqua, tomato red, gray, and lime green. It's been a lot of fun to go back and sew some of these blocks again, it makes me really want to spend some time with my Lucky Stars 12" blocks to finalize a layout and sew them together! Maybe after the holidays :)
I'm just in love with how they're turning out so far, especially now that they're starting to look like stockings. I'm using Shea Henderson's fabulous Sleigh Bells stocking pattern, which has some other fun ideas for piecing a stocking if you've got your heart set on a patchwork stocking. Speaking of Shea's fabulous-ness, have you seen her beautiful new book, School of Sewing? If you have friends who want to learn to sew, this is absolutely the perfect gift for them!
