    I am new to this forum for a couple of months now. Since I found you, I have gained sew much inspiration. I am basically a self taught quilter for many years now. A couple of years ago, I started making sweat shirt jackets using the crazy quilt method. Recently, I requested instructions on Izzy's Crumb Blocks. When she sent them, I realized I use the same technique for my jackets. Izzy suggested I post some photos. I am not as accomplished as you folks are on this forum. You are a very talented group. I wasn't happy with the way the black jacket fit, so I knitted a collar, cuffs and a bottom border. Knitting is another passion of mine. I hope I am able to post the photos properly.

    Wowzza! Those are great. I think you are quite a seamstress. I have yet to try one of those. I like your knitted touches also. Really makes it look uptown. Glad you joined us and enjoy quilting. This is a fabulous board.
