Thanks to my recent subscription to The Quilt Show, I'd purchased a past show featuring Virginia Avery -- and I was smitten. Her work is beautiful, her sense of humour is terrific, and her sense of style, even more so.

Jenni Dobson's Making Kimono and Japanese Clothes, given to me last year by an elderly friend who's no longer sewing. This book will also provide the pattern for the base garment that I'll use for the 'percolating' coat, tentatively titled "Garment of Praise".
It would seem that I am combining my sewing roots (garments and embroidery) with my more-recent quilting skills...for a new aspect of art quilting.
