Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Welcome to the Ugly Christmas Sweater quilt along! I am really excited about this new idea for a quilt along. I know Christmas 2015 is over…. But if we start now, everyone should have finished Christmas quilt in time for Christmas 2016. Hahaha!
Happily, Michael Miller Fabrics is as excited to see this come to life as I am, and will be sponsoring this project. Follow along and watch as these sweet solids from their Cotton Couture collection become the most adorable Ugly Christmas Sweaters you ever seen!
For my samples I will be using Watermelon, Soft White, Orange, Mango, Canary, Turquoise, Luna, Asparagus, Acid green and Princess pink. Also Festive Nest for the background and for the backing, there is (appropriately!) Sweater Weather. Both are from the Festive Forest collection by Tamara Kate.
Beginning February 1st, this quilt along will get underway and we would like to encourage you to quilt along. You can make as many or as few blocks as you like. Make a quilt or make a mini. Make a cushion. A table runner. A bed runner! Make whatever your imagination leads you to make!
The Ugly Christmas Sweaters blocks finish at 12″ square.
And each block features a 6″ block on the sweater.
Using 1″ sashing and borders, there are four sizes of quilts.
1 block Single Block Mini finishes at 14″ x 14″
4 block Mini finishes at 27″ x 27″
16 block Medium finishes at 53″ x 53″
20 block Maxi finishes at 53″ x 66″
Here are some examples of how your Ugly Christmas Sweaters quilt could look….
