I love cardigans, but I can’t always find colors or styles I like. I’ve found that by turning an old sweater into a custom cardigan, I can have exactly what I want!

For this cardigan, I started with an old sweater, cropped it, and then built on with quilt blocks stitched from coordinating fat quarters. The blocks are machine quilted using free-motion stitching with words hidden in the quilt stitches. If you love quilting, you'll love making this sweater. Even if you don't love quilting, or if the techniques are new to you, you'll love the results you get with this pattern!

The quilt sweater is more than just a custom cardigan. It is truly a work of wearable art. Now you can make this sweater too!
