Christmas Sweaters Quilt – Finally a Finish!

Posted on: September 7th, 2018 by Lorna McMahon


There is something very special about your first finish in a new home….



And this one has me thinking about the coming winter season already!

I showed the fabrics in this post, if you’re curious about them. This quilt design is reminiscent of the Ugly Christmas Sweaters I made as my first finish of 2016

The pieced backing includes the remnants left from bordering the quilt front. 


Did you notice I have a new quilt holder?

Looks like this new quilt may already have a home????

Christmas Sweaters – 66″ x 80″


The “Christmas Sweaters” quilt finished at 66″ x 80″
and was the 1st use of my 3rd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.



Want to make your own?

You can find the pattern here.

    Yay Lorna! Your quilt looks great and I love the holder. Sometimes I use push pins to hold a quilt right on the railing, if you don't have someone who can hold it for you. The neighbors are always amused. Have a great weekend!

    Very pretty quilt Lorna. I made an Ugly Christmas Sweaters quilt back in 2016. This version is really cute as well. I see these sweaters are turtlenecks. Adorable.
