    Lightbulb I think this will be warm enough!

    I live in the South, but I am planning a trip up North in March and I need a light jacket. If I bought one there would be less money to spend on quilting...hmmmmm... I made this one for free! I had an old red sweatshirt that had paint stains on it from brushing up against a freshly painted wall. I cut it up the front and opened up the side seams and turned it into a kind of crazy quilt. All of the fabrics are from my scrap bin. I had planned to put a zipper in it and then realized that I never use the zipper on jackets (I'm at that stage of life when a cool breeze is usually a relief). Hey...it may not be 'haute' Couture' but it should be warm enough for March in Ohio!

    Adorable! I'm not sure how warm it needs to be, tho. I live "up north" & we're STILL waiting for winter... LOL! You'll look like a million bucks, ho! Thanks for sharing!

    I don't think it will be warm enough for you, but it will be warm enough for me!

    I like your jacket a lot!

    If life gives you scraps, make an angel quilt out of it!

    Love the jacket, it is ok if you forget it when you are here. You can take one of my old sweatshirts home instead and see if you can perform the "sows ear into a silk purse" trick on it.

    I love the one of a kind look of your jacket. I bet everyone asks where you got it. Nice work.

    great job.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.
