    Just completed the third one today and thought I'd share the photos so bear with me as it will take time for me to get them loaded in. I love making them and wearing them as they are so comfortable.

    This is my first one and I ordered the sweatshirt and fabrics plus pattern from http://nancysnotions.com. As you can see, I opted to keep the neck ribbing, cuffs, and bottom ribbing on all 3 of my sweatshirts. Personal preference things.

    The 2nd one is my blue one that I run around in for every day here during our cooler months. Made this as a quilt chapter project last fall. Ordered all 3 of the sweatshirts from Nancy's Notions as they are hard to find in FL.

    The 3rd one is a gift I made for a friend and she chose black and white and I just finished it today and will be sending it off tomorrow.

    quilt as you go

    How do you make those? My mother is chair bound most of the time, and would love those. Is there a pattern somewhere?
    Thanks,

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I've enjoyed making each one of them and learn something new each time. The photos are good but truly don't do them just but I do agree, the black and white one is really pretty. All of them are though but the black and white one is amazingly sharp.

    Took apart another sweatshirt tonight so I can make one for my granddaughter and want to get it finished so we can take it to her when we go to see her the end of the month.

    Hi Carol,
    Try doing a search for quilted sweatshirts and sweatshirts to see what's on this board. Recently "uglycook" put up a pdf tutorial on how to do a gorgeous patchwork quilted sweatshirt and I want to make one of these this fall if possible - for myself. Also scroll up through the pictures as I did include the information on where to order the pattern for the burgandy one at nancy's notions.com. You can also go to her website and search for sweatshirts or quilted sweatshirts as she has many patterns available. The stripped one I got from my quilt chapter when we did it as a group project. There are many quilt sweatshirt patterns available. You can purchase your own fabrics or buy the jelly rolls or honey buns to use as well. The Burgundy one use a jelly roll packet. The other two I purchased 5 fabrics and used. You mix around until you find 5 fabrics you'd like to see together.

    I'll see if I can find the link for the patchwor tutorial and include here but it as just posted in the last 24 hours.

    This is the link to the tutorial. Didn't spot the one where she has a link to her pdf file. guess I didn't keep it but you can bookmark this file and go back to it when you want to use it.

    Great idea and we do need a sweatshirt jacket in Fl. The stores, restaurants, etc. are always so cold. I found some swearshirt jackets in Sears that have snap fronts and no ribbing that might be good to use.
