The Final Three

last three sweaters
Woohoo! I have finished all of the ugly Christmas sweater blocks and I even fixed the really, really ugly one too.

It took a little bit of surgery but I think that bit of extra effort was worth it. It wasn't too difficult - I just removed the center block and made a replacement. I like this sweater much better now.

I have been joining my piano key borders into long sections and they are growing like weeds. I won't worry too much about the actual lengths because this is a very relaxed border style. If the length happens to be too long when I try to join it to the quilt I will just measure what I need and hack off the excess and if it is too short I will add whatever is needed.

Today promises to be another fun day because my sister Cheryl is coming to visit. She has a couple small quilts that she plans to give away as gifts and she needs to quilt them. Lucky for her I have a longarm. ;)  I feel so fortunate that I have a quilty sister...we always have fun together.

Congratulations on finishing all the sweaters. You are right: the mitten sweater is much better now. I love it too. Have fun with the visitor. :^)

That sounds like so much fun.
Your sweater blocks will make a great quilt.
