    Off The Grid Vest

    This pattern is by Heidi Emmett. Very nice lady and such a cheerleader. Another new technique in quilting. I really love quilting. I wish I would have started this sooner and not been so terrified of it. I can quilt a blanket, I can quilt in a car, I can quilt on a jacket, I can quilt while in a plane.........

    Very fashionable! You did a great job.


    But, can you quilt and chew bubble gum at the same time?

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great vest! I love wearing vests...leaves arms free but keeps neck and shoulders warm. Your work is really classy.

    Great vest and I love how it eliminates the bulk under the arm. Love your choice of fabric and your quilting.

    I come from 57 years of garment construction and I have to say that vest is A-1!
