Here is another jacket which I love to wear. It’s plenty warm for spring and fall and I can easily wear it when the temperature drops to 0C with just a light sweater underneath. Recent purchase is the shawl and my purse that I got for Christmas.
The denim material was from my stash as well as the lining. Both had been hanging around forever and I finally decided to do something with them. Am glad that I did! :o) This jacket was machine quilted … nothing fancy but it works well with this material.
Why is it that I wear this colour in my clothing but it is out of my comfort zone for quilts? Why do I even buy it? This colour makes its way into my scrappy quilts but they are never the main colour. Perhaps I should make this a challenge to use most of these fabrics (it's a small basket, not a tote) for another jacket and thus help to reduce my stash. Any scraps will be tossed into my bins for scrappy quilts. Ummmm … yes, that will be a good idea!
Perhaps, also, this will be an opportunity for me to do a bit more fancy machine quilting. A few weeks back, I purchased a foot to do free form quilting. This will be a good time to try something different. Yes, that will be my challenge. It’s time to step out-of-the-box.
Have a nice day!
