    Pattern: Birch Street Quilted Reversible Vest

    This side uses a striped denim that I tye-bleached, tye-dyed with a purple dye, and painted with black and purple fabric paints in a splotchy pattern. My 3 year old daughter and I finished the painting by adding teal and blue splotches here and there as accents. All of the detail doesn't show in the images, but you can see the tye-dye/bleach effect.

    The final touch was to couch teal, blue, navy, and black yarns.

    The second side is pieced in the style of Yvonne Porcella's book Magical Four-Patch and Nine-Patch Quilts. I used Warm&Natural cotton batt and quilted this layer to the batt wit no backing in sweeping arcs using a black metallic thread.

    The closure uses snaps. I recommend the Snap-Setter brand.
