Finished!! – Ugly Christmas Sweaters Quilt

You guys!! It’s finished!! Back in January, I decided to join in on the Ugly Christmas Sweaters Quilt Along created by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts. This quilt came out even cuter than I could have imagined! ❤ ❤ ❤

Ugly Christmas Sweaters Quilt - Finished!!

I used Kona Solids for the sweaters and binding, snowflakes background by Studio E, argyle backing by Michael Miller and thread by Aurifil, of course.

I had so much fun making this quilt! I had originally decided to make a baby or lap quilt size, but it was so much fun, that I ended up making the maxi quilt size.

It was quilted by the lovely and talented Robin at Ormond Beach Quilts. Her work is always top-notch and this quilt is no exception. The quilting pattern is called Snow Winds. Is it perfect for this quilt or what?

I’m just in love with this quilt and I think I’m going to leave it hanging up for a while even though Christmas is still seven months away. 😀 😀 😀

    1. Yes! I love the quilting on this one. Robin did an awesome job as usual! 🙂 For my next seasonal quilt, I have the pattern and fabric ready for the shamrock for St. Patrick’s Day and the flag for 4th of July, but I’m thinking I may go with the turkey for Thanksgiving so it might have a chance of being done in time. 😀
