Working on some patches of a different type. This is my sons flight jacket with all the places he has been or squadrons he worked with.

It was a lot easier than I thought it world be. I used a leather needle and nylon thread. I read that what they use to treat the leather will break down cotton thread. This made it faster since I used a clear thread and didn't need to make any color changes.

I hope to be back to quilting after the holidays. I have a big project to share with you.

Figgy Pudding Quilt by Moda

Since I don't have anything to show you I thought I would pass this free pattern from Moda on to you that I saw on there site. It is called Figgy Pudding since that is the fabric line they used but you could use any fabric. It measures 64 X 88 finished. This would be a great idea to scale down in a baby size quilt.

I have a big quilt to paper piece that I will be starting in January that I plan to share with you. Lots of Hoffman Batiks will be used. I can't wait to get started but I know it will be better if I wait until after Christmas to start.
