    Yesterday I started this sweatshirt jacket and finished it today.

    The shirt is navy blue. I left the sleeves along for more easy of comfort.

    Thanks, I just cut the sleeves off and up the sides for the pattern.

    I pieced the squares together then did the flip & stitch method with the strips. Then I serged it back together and bound it.

    Oh, I bought a 1 size larger sweatshirt and by the time is shrinks, it will fit perfectly!

    sawsan, Cut a sweatshirt apart and sew your fabric directly onto the sweatshirt. You do not need any batting or linine (unless you want to).

    I quilted mine and didn't have any trouble at all and didn't use any extra fabric.

    Maybe this will help you.
