The coat I made for the challenge on Quilting Mod fits my great granddaughter real well. I took a picture of her and her 2 year old brother photo bombed her.

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