Default Update Quilted Jacket Dilemma

Thank you everyone for your thoughtful consideration. I decided to make a band using the various fabrics and will attach all the way around front openings & neck/back. I was going to use an applique on the back but I think this jacket was a learning exercise and I'll wait to create a jacket using a pattern. This one is going to be a bit bulky in the top front.
The links and videos are really helpful and I'll probably make one more like those in the future.

I folded it back inside and stitched it down by hand. Probably not the way a seamstress would do it but it fits my body and was easy in batiks.
I had to contend with large bust also and probably affected my choice on vneck. I am going with the suggestion and making a strip around fronts & back to edge it

Default Update to my quilted jacket

This is the applique I was going to use on the back . I think I will save it for another jacket or a shirt and use a pattern to be sre it comes out right. It's a learning experiene.
