I like vest #2 even better than the first. I like the fabrics more, but also I used a lightweight thread to stitch over the patches and it's just a bit softer as a result. I also altered the shape of the front corners, making a style that looks a bit better on me.
The main fabric comes in a panel style print with that design in a square shape. I had to jigger the fabric a bit to make it work as the back of the vest but you'd never know there's a seam along one side.
My machine quilting skills have improved a lot lately and it's partly due to the quilting on this vest. I enjoyed following along with the print which is good practice. More soon. I've got so many projects going, just need to stop working on them long enough for a photo!
