So my great grandmother's jacket became a casualty to a painting project.   Cry

front and obligatory pen pocket



inside pockets in action



ooooh.  comfort quilting

thanks.  you should have seen the process.  not so very professional.  fewer seams ripped out than previous projects though.  so that's progress.
