Wow.  I can't believe you actually pieced a quilt for the lining.

That is one incredibly awesome jacket.

Great job.

Lovely and exquisitely crafted.  Absolutely beautiful.

I'm a complete groupie for wool and silk mixes, and I looove the way your fabrics look together. The mosaic effect of the lining is gorgeous. I've loved everything you've posted on craftster (especially the cathedral dress).

And what's with all the hate for designers  Tongue? I'm a fine artist, designer and crafter so I look at things from all sides. At my level of ability, my craft side is the one that makes things for the sake of just being pretty and functional. Fine art is where I express beauty and, often more importantly, concepts. Same goes for design. Point being, BleachRainbow's work seems to have more of a conceptual approach, in addition to aesthetics. I think that can go over the heads of some people, where they just might not "get it" sometimes.
Craftster needs you to balance out all the cheesy video game reference crafts (of which I'm a proud contributor!), so don't stop posting  Wink

I love your work and appreciate that I will never be able to make anything as intricate or detailed. i love the quilting on this particular piece.

It's the whole craft hobby/craft design argument that stops me from posting my work sometimes. That's why I enjoy swaps and craft-alongs. As far as sewing goes I'm a novice, but I like to dabble in all crafts, as a nurse I don't have time to focus all my energy on crafting, but I appreciate that given a critically ill patient some people on here wouldn't have a clue what to do. There shouldn't even be an argument, everyone should be appreciated whatever their skill, I hope you don't stop posting bleachrainbow and I certainly won't hold back now.

Happiness is the key to success, success is not the key to happiness. If you love what you're doing you will be happy.

That lining is jaw dropping! I love the contrast between outer and lining as well, a really lovely balance. Nice work!

Love the Lining!
