Absolutely loved this course! My friend and I each made a jacket in black fabric. One of us used metallic silver thread for quilting and the other used gold thread. We each used black, silver, and gold fabrics for the patchwork quilt for the collar. We both receive many compliments when we wear our jackets. Mary Ray is a fantastic instructor. Now I plan to make one in a navy fabric so I can wear it with jeans! The inside of the jacket is just a beautiful as the outside. This was a terrific course and I highly recommend it. If you are using metallic thread for your quilting, make sure you use a metallic needle! Otherwise the metallic thread will keep breaking.
