As a half-baked fan of sewing and quilting, I can appreciate the skills that these examples show off. I can also appreciate that they are warm enough for the toughest winters. I recognize that my uniform of dresses and cardigans for work hardly make me a fashionista, even among the librarians. I still have to say no to wearing a blanket.
Actually, some of these patterns and color choices would make interesting quilts. However, a nice quilt doesn’t necessarily translate into a great fashion choice. This is right up there with my dislike of remade sweatshirts. (Type sweatshirts into our search box and behold the numerous examples of questionable clothing.)
