What materials did you use? Cotton quilting fabric (Rounneries Deux by French General), cotton thread for piecing and quilting, very thin cotton wadding (clothing weight), calico (muslin) for backing the quilted portion prior to making up, silk for lining and back, metal buckle, metal buttons, covered in cotton fabric.

What are you most proud of? I can't take any credit for the beautiful way this has been made, right down to the fabric-covered buttons - my input was merely the patchwork and quilting. Jacqueline is a very experienced and highly skilled tailoress and she has made a wonderful job of the waistcoat. I can't wait to see Derek's face when he receives it on Christmas morning! I'll have to add a picture of him modelling it! All credit to clever Jacqueline!

I'm sure your husband will love this vest for Christmas. My husband (Ike) also cleans the floor of bits of thread and batting. He just shakes the mats out side and the birds take the bits of thread. I'm glad that someone elses husband doesn't complain about he bits of thread all around. I have a patient husband as well. He always says each quilt or project is a winner.

So, how did hubby like his extra special Christmas pressie? Has he worn it yet? Did you manage to keep it a secret until the big day LOL???

He loved it! The secret was well guarded and he had a nice surpirse as he'd more or less forgotten about it. Hasn't worn it yet (haven't been anywhere posh enough!) but he will - or else!
