A coat with all the patchworking



A few days ago, I managed to finish Maggie's patchwork coat. Oh! It was a lot of thinking how to line the lining inside and lots hesitations! I ended up machine sew the neckline and the bottom of of the coat then hand-stitched the sleeves. Originally, I wanted to add the Peter pan collar, but the neckline turned out smaller than I could handle, then I decided to leave it as how the pattern described.  I just need to add a set of snaps on the coat opening to finish this patchwork coat!

I love how sometimes, I can work something small and still enjoy a bit of the sewing process. My sewing with quilts' mojo is very low, but still is there! I have't been able to spend hours just sew without interruptions lately. I still am working on the birthday quilt, slowly. But now it seems not in such a rush and hurry anymore! Each day is a little patchworking here and there! Oh, I think hope in May the quilt top will be done!

Oh! many of you ask for the organizing fabrics. I might be the wrong person for this, but I will write up a post to share how I organized mine around here! It is nothing fancy, but very old fashion way! Oh! I expected some laughs and good giggles from many of you!

Weekending is happening here and it is another gotta run weekending!
