Artist’s Statement:
I borrowed the pattern and collected materials of my preference. I drew the feathers to fit into the two parts of the collar and created a design for the front and quilted them. I used the traditional Scottish Wedding Knot for the back, which was difficult to quilt. Making the buttons and the braided band on the back of the jacket with the collar fabric was my own idea.
