    Margie's Jacket

    I have an 80 year-old cousin who loves red and quilts, especially red quilts. She has many!! Even her kitchen has red counter tops and a red sink!! So I thought I'd try a quilted jacket, based on a sweatshirt. The picture isn't great, would have looked better on a model. I purchased 2 red and white jelly rolls and used the "Super Simple Sweatshirt Jacket" pattern by Turkey Track Designs.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
