Notorious for beginning a project and then realizing “I really didn’t think this through,” I saw a beautiful vest in a catalog and I thought, “I can copy that vest right down to the quilting patterns.” Once again, my over confidence got the best of me. The quilted lines on the catalog vest were perfectly straight. The quilt lines matched at the shoulders and were spaced flawlessly. As an expert seamstress, I was confident this was not going to be a problem. Yeah, right!
