I decided it would be fun for the Board to 'Diva' it up at the next conference. I bought patterns and mailed them to each Board member. They had 10 months to finish it. We need them for May. As typical quilters, only 2 of us are finished. But in case any of them are reading this, (even though none of them bother to follow my blog, kidding). I have complete faith that the others will finish in time.
This is the pattern I bought by Amy Bradley
I decided to put mine onto a navy denim long vest that I might add I made in one day. And not to brag or anything, (totally want to brag here) I did french seams and a piping on the edges. The piping is blue and white dot fabric, seriously who doesn't love circles as binding on a vest!
This is my piping.
Here is the back of my jacket where my Diva resides. She is wearing the best in fashion for 2013. That really translates to me picking out fabric that is loud, bright and full of dots.
In case you were wondering, those earrings are actual spools covered in fabric. I know, you wish you had a pair.
Don't mind the snow in the background, I have been politely asking Mother Nature to please wake up and realize that spring was supposed to arrive last month.
What do you think of my Diva coat? Should I start beefing up my resume as I may be turfed from the Board?
