    That's a real beauty. I like it much better as a quilt than as a vest. Kudos to you for keeping with it all those years.

    What a great way to use extra vest panels! It turned out lovely & just in time for Fall.

    What about a nice chocolate brown binding, not so stark as the black. The quilt is gorgeous, you did a great job. Thank you for showing.

    Wonderful!! To think vest material too! Great show and tell on your detail work! Thanks so much for the back story too. Encouraging that large projects have an end!

    As always you did a beautiful job. I am amazed also that it only took 6 of those vests. I have not made a quilt like this so of course I will bookmark so I can come back later for inspiration.

    Your stack and whack is one of the nicest I've seen. I love it. Fall is my favorite time of year.
    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.

    Can't believe you turned those vests into so many different designs! I had to come look at it again - great way to use 'fussy' fabrics combined with 'blenders' to make an outstanding finished product!

    That is totally amazing!! Just like good wine and cheese, quilts also often improve with age. This one is just lovely!

    WOW!!! What a beautiful and stunning quilt and so much work put into it. It is to be for your mother-in-law or will you keep it for yourself???
