Well, everyone at spring quilt market this weekend LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it. But virtually everyone thought it was too complicated. But it's not. Too complicated. You just send it to the long arm quilter FIRST. She does her magic and you make your vest. It's super flattering with the nice darts and couture finishes. And, yes, that's a first place blue ribbon on it from the Machine Quilter's Showcase in Kansas City last week! My first BLUE. Also very exciting.
My friend, Cathy Stiele models her vest for me. She thinks the green background makes her look green. She might be right. But nothing can make the vest look anything but fabulous. It has nice sized darts that make it fit beautifully.
And, yes, you can 'feather your vest' too. There is a pattern available individually from www.quilterswarehouse.com or ask for it at your local quilt shop. It is available from the major distributors as well.
