While at the Asheville Quilt show over the weekend, besides seeing wonderful quilts, many people wore their finest quilted vests and jackets, also great to see! A couple of very cool "fashion statements" caught my eye - One was these wonderful "leggings" - loved the swirls of color - really wild!
And the other was this wonderful skirt made by Carol Sloan. Carol got the idea and pattern from the book - The Alabama Stitch by Natalie Chanin. Carol and I both saw an exhibit a while back at the Front Gallery. It featured unique wearables and some items made using this technique from this book. Carol used a knit fabric, basted the 2 layers together and did a reverse applique. She was able to carry the individual panels with her to work on.
