    Jacket and Horse quilt

    The jacket is repurposed from a drapery panel. And had a request for the picture of the horse quilt.

    Horse quilt not finished. and points don't match because of inaccurate measuring on my part. However, I do not think my family will disown me.

    Both are beautiful. My family never seems to notice when my points don't match. (That's why I keep on quilting.) Your horses brought a smile to my face.

    WOW did that horse quilt jump out at me, its neat I did notice some of the not meeting points but hey not everyone I know is perfect either and they make some outstanding quilts. Your jacket is beautiful can't believe its a drapery scrap panel. That's why we have all these extra things in our sewing piles.

    I love the jacket. Would you share the name and number of pattern ? I used to make all my clothes but got away from it. Seems like patterns and fabric went crazy like all the brought on fashions. LOL

    Wow I just love your jacket! It is amazing it started out as drapery.
    The quilt is really special too. I don't think most people will be checking the points anyway. The design is wonderful and well executed.

    I think it is polyester. My son's neighbor bought a table at a thrift store. they used this panel to wrap the table for delivery. Son brought it to my house for me to make sofa pillows. Daughter fell in love with fabric and he gave it to her. I made the jacket. Waiting for the Frog closures to arrive from Hong Kong.
