The Ugly Christmas Sweater

Kerry Goulder of Kid Giddy designed the cutest paper pieced pattern for a Christmas sweater block. I fell in love with it. You can find it in her etsy shop here.

I have this little scrap of fabric that I have been hoarding. It's one of my favorite Christmas prints, solely because it always makes me laugh when I see it.

Kim of Persimon Dreams is having an ugly Christmas sweater contest. Whether this is a winner of the contest or not, I sure do love this block. I'm going to be making many more throughout the year so next year there will be a whole quilt full of Christmas sweaters!

I think you should knit yourself a version of this jumper!

LOL!! What a great block! It would be so fun choosing the fabrics for a whole quilt of them.
