What are you most proud of? I bought the pattern in 1985 and was able to walk right to it. The jacket is comfortable, fits well, and can be worn in my life for so many of my activities. I am so pleased with it's outcome. I have come full circle. I started quilting with clothing and now am back to it. But this jacket doesn't look like something that could be made at home..

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you haven't taken Cindy's class, take it. It is amazing how easy it is do design and do quilting designs that look so complex yet they are simple lines.

WOW! Did you quilt the fabric and then make the jacket or vice versa?

The pieces of the jacket are quilted first. I put an outline of the piece on the fabric and then add at least an inch all the way around. The quilting causes the piece to pull up. And if I am going to wash it before cutting out the piece, I allow an extra 2" all the way around each pattern piece.

So charming and classy. Do you use long arm or DSM? If DSM, do you use a regulator? What thread?
