Completed Joseph's coat for Charming Mini Swap - or - Starfish in the sand

    Newer Older

    Hand appliqued petals in the Joseph's coat pattern using a charm pack of Moda's Botany for Spiced Coffee in the Charming Mini Swap.

    I used the pebble quilting to help create texture and make the "coat" stand out...but as soon as I was finished all I could see was starfish in the sand. And that is what it is now named.

      this is beautiful!!! where can i find a pattern or instructions for this?

    11. Cut To Pieces 44 months ago | reply

      I googled the pattern because I saw others making it and took advice from here and there. Ultimately I drafted my own pattern and made my own template.

      you're welcome....I know it's not too helpful of an answer, but I do have some progress updates on my blog that I wrote as I was making it. That might have some information that I'm not remembering right now. LOL.
