    I have been collecting pinwheels. All sizes - all colors. My intention was always to put them into a jacket of some sort, but now I have the inspiration to DO it. We have a challenge due in May, so now I have an idea and a deadline. Sounds like something might get done. Thanks, UGLY COOK for the wonderful tut.

    Thank you for the tutorial. Great job! I love all the beautiful jackets everyone else has posted too. The one trimmed with 'pony fur' is fantastic. It gave me a few ideas 'outside of the box'. A camo done with more free form shapes instead of angular cuts is one.
    Also someone mentioned putting in a zipper instead of using binding. I think it might work using a hooded zipped sweatshirt. Then just cut off the hood and put binding around the neck

    Wonderful tutorial. I have seen these made and almost took a class for it once. Now having access to a tutorial, sure is more tempting.

    I got my mom hooked on these. She had to pick out smaller sewing projects due to her hands. Quilts just got to be to big for her any more.

    Has anyone done these jackets using fleece fabric?

    Sounds like a good idea to use fleece, I would like to try it with a fleece indian print and use sherpa to line it... Yeah I want to try it

    I made one of these a couple years ago in class and we had so much fun! I made mine out of a dark blue sweatshirt and a variety of snowflake fabrics. We used glue sticks to glue the fabric pieces on the sweatshirt; I had so much fun that I became addicted to glue sticks for quilting LOL I never took a picture of it and unfortunately I left it at a restaurant and it was gone by the time I got back The instructions here are are almost exactly how we did ours - so thank you for the GREAT tutorial!!! I look forward to making another one; my office is always freezing cold and another one of these would be perfect.

    I happen to find the following video on Youtube this afternoon from Kaye Wood and her guest showing how to make a fractured bargello jacket similar to this tutorial, but a bit more structured. I've never made a bargello quilt, but I loved the way this jacket turned out.

    Regardless of which method you prefer, the guest on this video gave one huge tip. Have your sweatshirt wrong-side out when attaching the fabric. You should sew to the fuzzy side. That puts the nice smooth side of your sweatshirt to the inside. By putting the sweatshirt inside-out, you don't have to worry about the fuzzy inside of your jacket pilling up on you or your clothes.
