I made a quilt top, which was supposed to be a rail fence pattern, but, due to serious lapses in concentration, is more a broken fence
P8110004

I was debating whether to use the 'fabric' for a patchwork jacket. I have a very simple pattern, edge to edge style with a shawl collar, and think there is enough fabric to do it [will obviously check first] With maybe a fleece lining? What do you think?

Why not?

If you have enough fabric, go for it!

It would be a great jacket... but it's also a great quilt! I think you might be amazed at how wonderful it looks once it's quilted!

Well, truth be told, I think it is a boffo quilt. I am not a huge lover of the rail fence pattern, but I love what your lapse in concentration created.

OTOH, I think it would make an excellent jacket if that is what you want to do with it.

I like it as a quilt. Really. I once made a rail fence quilt and when I look at it, I get a headache. If that was my quilt, I would go ahead and quilt it. JMO
