Quilted Winter Coats

It's rather chilly down at free range studios at the moment. This has inspired me to start cranking out super snuggly quilted coats.

This little number uses gorgeous vintage fairy tale cotton that mum and I found on our recent Op. shopping trawl in Palmy North. I paired the fairy tales with dusky blue drill. It's also fully lined with blue and white gingham, making it "almost" totally reversible, just those pesky buttons would be a bit tricky.

Check out those straight quilting lines too! My first attempt to quilt my own fabric.
