Fall Vest For Mom and Giveaway

 My Mom, 
 Encourager, Supporter, Cheerleader
and Friend!
 (but Mom always first!).
(Houston Give Away Below)

 I participated in my first Blog Hop a few posts back.
In the Hop I used 2 fabrics.
I liked the green fabric so.... much, that I took all the remaining cuts
(OK..they are scraps but I can't label them that, when recreating Art--Right?)
and added a few additional cuts to the cover the top!
Added a FEW fall leafs that was cut with the Accu-Quilt.
I was going for a subtle "Fall" look.
Kinda like a pile of crinkled leafs with only a few Whole Jewels in the crowd.
(Alright poetry is not my thng!)

The fabric cuts were applied to a sweatshirt!
Traced a favorite store purchased vest as a pattern to cut the arms a edges.

It was quilted on a mid-arm!
A domestic machine works just as nice.

May just need to make one for me too!

Allot of people that follow this blog will be in Houston.
So be on the look-out,  the first person that stops my mom
 and says that they saw this post, 
will get a pile of leafs.
