Progress on my "to do list"

One of the items I wanted to work on this year is my Amish fabric jacket, so a few days ago I dug out the box with all the pieces in and found all I had completed was cutting the sweatshirt into pieces and sewing oblongs of Amish material together but nothing else. Goodness knows how long ago I got this far!

I decided I already have two jackets made by this method do I really need another? NO.

SO.. I joined all the fabric pieces together in a random design, threw away the cut up sweatshirt and using a fleece I had been given quilted the fabric to the fleece. I then trued everything up and it has made a quilt 40 x 60 inches. I will donate this quilt to the Linus project and hope some young man [ the cows, buggies etc would be good for a boy] gets pleasure from it.
I have the binding on just need to finish sewing the binding down.

I can now mark off two items on my 2015 list of jobs: Amish jacket and a Linus quilt.

Looks very nice. Did you sew black strips around the pieces? Intriguing.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
