Just got word that I’ll have a block in the next issue of 100 Blocks! Keeping my streak alive!

However, they sent back another block and said no thank you.

Ugly Christmas Sweater by Kay Mackenzie

Can’t imagine why!!! :)

I sewed as much stuff to it as I could.

Would you like to inherit this hand-appliquéd and embellished 12″ block? if so, please leave a comment before 7:00 p.m. California time on Wednesday, February 18.

U.S. shipping addresses only, and clicking “Reply” to your email feed won’t enter the drawing. Come to the blog on the internet and leave your comment at the bottom of the post.

Thank you to anyone willing to adopt this poor orphan.

    Too funny :-) It’s a great idea for the right occasion…not sure I have one though. I’m going to stick to adopting dogs. LOL
    Someone is going to love this!

    Oh this is too cute. Not even the ugliest sweater I’ve seen. I’ve been collecting to make a Christmas tree quilt I can almost see this lying under the tree. Lol Thanks

    What a great idea! My brother won the Ugly Sweater contest this year at his office. (With a sweater featuring the Holy Family, which I think takes nerve…) Now I’m thinking he may need a quilt, though perhaps a mini quilt might be plenty. I’d love to start with your block!

    Aaawwhh, it’s too cute. I would give her a good home. My 5 yr old thinks we should wear it :-)

    That would be a great decoration either as a pillow or wall hanging for my daughter who throws an ugly Christmas sweater contest every year and decorates for it.

    That is precious! I would love to add this to my Christmas decorations! Congratulations on the block that was accepted.

    Pretty funny, Kaye. I made my son-in-law an ugly Christmas hoodie this year. Please, please, do NOT pick me :)

    Now who wouldn’t like that block! Love it… I give my kids crazy stuff every year. They are such sweethearts they actually display them to! I think their Grandma Holt started this when they were baby’s! When they left home I sorted their bits out of the x-mas decorations. Very sentimental!
    I would love that block!

    I certainly would love to take that block off your hands! I don’t know why it was rejected. It would be fun to make a throw with different “Ugly Sweaters”!

    I’d love it! Truly is an ugly sweater but it would go well in a mixed quilt!

  11. Kathy L on February 14th, 2015 12:23 pm

    I think it is lovely. Who dares to call it ugly?

  12. Beverly Schueneman on February 14th, 2015 1:32 pm

    I just love it! Please send it to me so that I can include it in the xmas quilt I am planning. It is going to be from your Christmas to Applique book. If you don’t, I will have to make a similar copy and give you credit.

    I’m willing to adopt this orphan. Can’t understand why it was turned down … *s*

  14. Rita on February 14th, 2015 1:47 pm

    What a great sweater!

  15. usairdoll on February 14th, 2015 4:00 pm

    Oh I would love to have a Kay Mckenzie original! I can provide a good home for your block, hehe. Congratulations on having another one of your blocks in Quiltmaker’s 100.

    Awesome giveaway!

    I think it’s adorable. I would love to give it a home.

  17. Robin Gallagher on February 15th, 2015 2:53 pm

    This is so cute. Wouldn’t this make a great block exchange where everyone makes their own ugly sweater. Cute, cute, cute. Thank you for sharing.

    I’m not sure why they didn’t want this block – it’s adorable! Ugly Christmas sweaters are so trendy – I think they missed out on this design.
