Ugly Sweater Mini Quilt with HeatnBond EZ Print Sheets

What’s a great Christmas holiday season, without an “Ugly Sweater”?

Here is one that won’t make you look silly wearing it, but still allows you to join in on the fun of it all!

It’s quick and easy to put together, and bound to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Supplies

½ yard or 2 fat quarters fabric for background and backing

1/6-yard binding fabric

Miscellaneous fabrics for appliques

HeatNBond®Fusible Fleece

HeatNBond®EZ Print Featherlite

or

HeatNBond®Lite fusible web

SprayNBond®Basting Adhesive

Thread to match

Applique pressing sheet

6 micro buttons for tree ornaments

Start by downloading the free pattern “Ugly Sweater Mini Wall Hanging” here.

The pattern is HeatNBond EZ Print Lite, friendly. No tracing is required. Just pop a sheet in your printer and hit the print button. It’s not to late to add that to your holiday list and makes a great stocking stuffer!

Cutting and Construction

Cut 1 – 12 ½” x 14 ½” piece for background

Cut 1 – 13” x 15” piece of backing fabric and fusible fleece

Cut 2 – 2 ¼” x WOF (width of fabric) for binding

Fuse HeatNBond®Fusible Fleece to the backside of background fabric. It not only provides a nice stable surface for stitching appliques, but it keeps your projects nice and flat. I love using it on small wall hangings, as well as table runners and toppers.

Rough cut the applique shapes and fuse to the backside of your fabrics. When cool cut out and arrange on an applique pressing sheet. Fuse in place. When cool, remove from the pressing sheet and lay on your quilt top. Fuse in place.

Place your sweater mini, the wrong side up on an old sheet or towel. Using SprayNBond®Basting Adhesive, spray the backside and lay the backing, right side up, on top. You can now take this quilt sandwich to your machine and stitch the appliques down as desired. Quilt, sew micro buttons to the tree, and attach the binding.

You are now ready to rock your “Ugly Sweater”.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!
