Thread: Hello from Arizona

    Hello everyone. I live in Prescott, Arizona and have only been quilting for a year. I attended a class to learn how to make my first quilt. Then I started getting together with a wonderful group of ladies once a week to do more quilting projects with their help. I find this hobby fascinating - just like painting with material. I love creating that way.
    I just discovered this group and started getting the messages. I went to the tutorial section and have already learned some great hints, especially for an easy pinwheel. Thank you for that!!
    My question is - I'm trying to find a pattern for a quilted jacket that I found at a rummage sale. It is a real quilt (not patches sewn on a sweatshirt). I love the pinwheel pattern blocks down the front of both sides. The rest is vertical panels. Does anyone know where I might find a pattern for that, or should I just copy what I see on that one?

    I have never seen that pattern for a jacket. It may have been an inspiration of the maker. The front looks like 1/2 square triangles sewn together.

    Try googling quilted jacket patterns. You will get lots of hits, maybe one will be this pattern if there was a pattern.

    Good luck!
