Finished this Baby Surprise Jacket last night. I made if for one of the girls at work who just had the cutest baby boy! I've been wanting to try this pattern for years. It's by Elizabeth Zimmerman and it has a really interesting construction. I meant to take a photo before I sewed it up but had one sleeve done and was not about to tear it out! It's knit all in one and then seamed across the top of the sleeves and shoulders. V. cool.
So Susie may have been onto something! This doesn't look bad at all. It currently measures 87 x 58 as it lies in pieces. When sewn together it will be a bit smaller. I may do a stop border to go next to the binding. So my goal now is to make all the blocks I will need-seven maybe?
It's a finished top. Well, I say finished. I'm going to have to shorten the top and bottom borders-I think they are too long to fit the batting! I bought a twin size batting on sale for this quilt. Still need to make the back and then I can send if off to Karen the Quilter.
