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.
