Vivian :
Install the backing ( or in this case the lining fabric  and whatever, if any batting) on the longarm and pin the deconstructed sweatshirt to the backing and batting and quilt as desired.

These jackets don't need batting - the sweatshirt fleece is nice and thick.  Batting would really make it look like a football top.  For those of you trying one, you can save the ribbing from the waist to use (trimmed down) as the new collar.  Have fun!

MaxNTopeka:

Max, your embroidered animals are as cute as can be.  I can see from the ruler that these are quite small, so it's no surprise that it might take a while to make enough for a quilt.

Max, your hand embroidery work is beautiful!  Wow, I thought it was machine when I saw the horses.  I'm impressed, I'm looking forward to seeing more. A friend of mine does only hand work with her quilting. She had her thumb joint replaced last month and her pain is gone now. I had no idea you could new thumb joints now!

Thank you, Ladies!  Your kind words are too sweet!  I enjoy doing these little characters, They make good time-fillers. Its hard to just sit and do nothing.

I am much onward with Christmas projects, and have a lineup of post holiday plans. I'm making a nine patch for DGD birthday in Feb, and have been drafted to put together a baby quilt for SIL's expected Grandchild in March. Don't know what pattern yet; consulting this weekend. Many things to catch up next year.

But, you know, I think I'm going to have to take time out to copy that chicken. It inspires me. I could modify my monster, sew in a beak, stick on some feathers and there you go.

Work, the curse of the quilting classes, calls and I must answer.

LOL  

I hope you don't have a cat.  The yarn is enough a temptation to mine without adding feathers to the mix!

I'm finally quilting the outer border of a quilt I'm making for Indy's trainer. She's surprising her husband for Christmas.  And then of course I'm thinking of my next round robin center square. And I've started a wall hanging for my secret sister that involves tea cups. Got the cups cut out, now I just have to figure out the size of the rest of it. I have limited amount of the main fabric. I may have to go shopping in my stash and see what I can find to coordinate. Had a lot of small pieces to coordinate for cups. Then there's Christmas for 7 grandchildren....hmmmm. I'm thinking gift cards since I did al that sewing this summer for all of them. That's my quilting for the day. Now it's almost bedtime. I think Indy is already there!

Hugs,

I worked on my flannel rag quilt today.  I'm about 65% done.  Love that I don't have to quilt or bind this thing after sewing the blocks together.

I have made 5 of those rag quilts and that was 4 too many! The worst part of making them are clipping the seams to make it ragged. Even with spring scissors they kill your hands. But I love them too. They are so warm and cuddly. I have one that I cuddle up with to watch TV every night, even in the summer.

I did not work on a quilt today, I worked at the LQS, and spent all day cutting kits of various types. My back is killing me. We are having a shop hop so we were very busy today. More of the same on Friday and Saturday, and Monday. Then I hope to rest! For being retired I sure don't spend much time in my studio.
