Quilting Mod Challenge #1

Here is what I made for the Challenge from the fabric that was sent to me.  I bought the navy blue fabric to combine with it because it contrasted well and also is modern.  I purchased the pattern earlier this year because it uses quilted fabric.  Hadn't gotten around to making anything with the pattern yet.  When I got into the challenge I kept tossing ideas around and then remembered the  coat pattern and felt like this was an opportunity to make my own quilted fabric to make the coat with.  It is a size 4-5 child.


 Coat front:





Coat back:  
Inside.  
The sleeves seem long to me so they look good rolled up one cuff.  


The following pictures shows the fabric and then a couple pictures of my work in progress. 
I sort of made it up as I went along.  I kept thinking of ideas and changing my mind.  I didn't quilt the collar but it did use some thin iron on fleece to give it some body.  I didn't want the collar to be too lumpy.    I pieced together 2 fabrics for the collar because I couldn't decide which color to use.    The coat will be for my 4 year old great granddaughter.  
The pattern I used:




Thank you Afton for the fabric (and little gifts)  and the Challenge.

  5. Wow! You did an outstanding job on this. What creativity and the quilting plus turning up the cuffs. It looks like she will be able to wear it a little longer with that added touch. Love it!
