So here is a sequence of events for the vest:
|Drawing out some ideas above and below|
I got inspiration and ideas from two amazing quilters, Diane Gaudynski and Marelize Ries. If you have time, visit their blogs, they are amazing!!!! And truly inspiring :^)
|Cutting out the pattern pieces. I am using a unisex pattern and cut a medium size out. I know it will shrink a bit when quilted. Then when the feathers are all done I may be re-cutting the vest to a small so that it isn't too big on me.|
2. Quilt feathers
4. Sew vest together
5. Quilt background
6. Make a lining with inside pockets
I've started to shade the vest front this morning. This is something I can do while watching TV with my DH!!
|The shading will help the feathers to POP out!!!|
More later!!! :)
Have a lovely day, Happy Quilting and keep those scissors sharp!!!
