    My sweatshirt jacket turned out great and I'm very happy with it. I had the sweatshirt cut up for a long time while I got the right fabrics together and I'm happy with my choices. I've worn it to my quilt meeting and everyone loved it enough to ask me to do a class for them.
    Thanks for looking! Janie

    ps - the picture in the background is one that I bartered for with a lady who does oil paintings. I quilted for her and she painted for me a still life of my quilt, my duck from my Dad, my husband's great grandfather's iron house and the old blue jar from my collection of them.

    Very pretty!! I love your fabric choices. I see you put a pocket on the left front of your jacket, that's cute.

    I still have to put the borders on mine. I've been interrupted by a graduation quilt and a baby quit for the moment but hope to get back to the jacket very soon. So close but still so far away, LOL!

    I love it. I think it is the prettiest one that I have seen. I don't see a pocket though.

    Your jacket is very pretty on you. Great color choices and I can see why your guild members wanted a class from you.
    The painting is really wonderful and to think it's of things that mean so much to you.
