What are you most proud of? The quilting design.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did part of the quilting before I stitched the side seams. That way I had less fabric going through the throat of my machine. Any quilting that had to cross a seam was saved till after I had stitched the seams. Use bias binding or you won't make the curves on the armholes and front of the vest. If you are going to use some pretty quilting, don't use a busy fabric that will hide all your work.

So impressed!! This garment was well worth the time you put into it, because now it is an heirloom for your family!!

Thank you so much for your kind words. I have never considered any clothing article I made to be an heirloom, like I do my quilts. You have introduced me to a new way of looking at my quilted garments.
