In the Queue Wednesday

Another one for me...
Vicki jokingly asked last week if my husband's stash was as large as mine? The truth is, with those 2 new Hawaiian shirt fabrics, it almost is! But I am still one or two outfits up on him. And here is one of them:

This is a kit I purchased in February at the Sewing and Quilt Expo in Tampa, Florida. If you haven't seen these before, it is a quilted jacket that you make using a sweatshirt as the pattern pieces and the lining.

I'm not 100% sure why I bought it. It is very wild and crazy! Plus my only experience with piecing was trying to make a square for the PR quilt - and that did not go well... But the bright colors and happy prints just kept calling to me and eventually I gave in.

I have no clue when I'm going to get to this one. But I'll make it eventually - it's in the queue. ;)

Gwen! I was going to wait and ask you in person tonight, but given "what's in the queue" today, I couldn't wait even a few more hours... Becky and I, along with her friend Carol, are going to have a quilting party in a couple weeks. We'd love it if you could join us! Carol is an avid quilter and would probably love to see the vest and give helpful pointers! :)

(I'll ask you again tonight, too, and bring details!)
