Rooster Vest

So if you are coming to Mid Atlantic Quilt Fest Sunday, Mar 1, and see a 'mature' short fat gal in this, it is me… haaa!!! This is a Meme’s pattern. May be a free one now.
I hand appliqued this during one of DH's procedures at hospital. ;-)
I got the denim vest at thrift, it is a short one forget what they call that.
I changed out the buttons to match the back as well.
Anyway is a fun wear to these kinds of events even if I have ' filled out' somewhat since I finished it!!
Need to make me up a wall hanging with this one too, but do on machine this time...;-)
I think Sherry has some cute patterns and I happen to be a rooster kinda gal so have a few of them!!!

Thanks so much for all your nice comments on the Froggy Quilt Top!!!
Just makes me so happy to do for others!!
Yes Laurie please do one when you can , (maybe after your trip..haa!!)no time limit here!!!


  1. Oh how cute is that! ok I need to make one of these, but wait, I have to finish some things first! Thanks for something else to add to the list!
    How is the weather down there? The news doesn't look too good.
    Have fun at the quilt show!

  2. I love the rooster. I'm strangely drawn to chickens and roosters. I hear you are supposed to have a rooster in your kitchen for good luck.
    I think it is great that you are showing what you will be wearing so people can come up and greet you. Wish I could be there!

  3. I love that vest! I'll be looking for it if Robyn is game on going back tomorrow.

  4. I love that rooster vest and the froggie quilt is so cute !

  5. Your vest is terrific and I wish I was going to the quilt fair. The applique pattern is delightful!

    Happy Stitching...ANn :)

  6. That vest is adorable! Funny enough, I am going to make a Carol Doak's vest that is reversible, and I am just waiting for the Yakuta fabric that I ordered.
    Great Job!


Luv hear'in from ya!!
