French Braid Jacket done (at last)


Recommended Posts

I designed this jacket for a guild retreat. It is foundation pieced and then quilted with my long arm. It was very hard to keep the piecing precise as you sewed and flipped the strips! I will not try piecing a jacket this way again.

I am also sending it to Machne Quilting Today in a couple of weeks.post-6134-0-20200200-1404311766_thumb.jpgpost-6134-0-09319000-1404311786_thumb.jpg

I am always "going to" make a quilted jacket or two to wear with jeans...I'm talking quilting the fabric and then making a jacket with the quilted fabric.  This, however, is over the top!  It is really a classy jacket.  Reminds me that I still want to make a quilted jacket and also that I still want to try a French braid quilt. 

 

Thanks for sharing!
