    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.

    Great jackets. I once made a dress that was a chenille type fabric and wanted ribbing for the sleeves. Couldn't find any that matched so I knitted ribbing. Got lots of compliments on the dress. I was always being asked where I bought it.
    Don't you just love things that turn out well in spite of problems?

    Absolutely LOVE the black jacket with the knitted collar, cuffs, and band! I have not knitted in years but I am tempted to try the same thing. Love, love, love your jacket!!!

    Gee, I didn't think I'd get such great compliments like this. Thank you for your kindness. I'm now working on a black and white with red all over vest which is lighter in weight with no batting. I also started a red jacket with Asian fabrics, but that's now on hold till the fall. The jackets are very warm and cozy. The batik jacket has gone thru 2 transformations already. I lost 130 lbs. and would not part with that jacket. I managed to alter it each time. I recently bought a Mega Quilter with a frame and still haven't attempted to quilt anything. Bought it from a dear friend on-line, so no guide classes. Sure wish I lived near Charisma to teach me. I'd pay anything for her to teach me a tiny bit of her talent. I have several quilt tops to be quilted. All my other jackets have decorative stitching done on my Bernina 200e. I also have a Bernina Aurora 430 with a BSR that I stipple quilt smalller quilts. I suffer from more hobbies than brains. Problem is, I have to work full time with little time to play. And I work over an hour from home. Thanks again,
    Camille
