Update an old sweater to reflect the quilting trend for fall
I've never made a quilt in my life, but I'm beyond infatuated with the quilted trend floating into fashion pieces these days (and if Rachel Zoe says quilting is cool, who am I to argue?) For those of us who can't afford a Chanel bag, we have to create our own alternative, no? Up-cycling a sweater with dimensional quilting is a great way to transform an old piece with a new trend. Sign me up for the quilting circle.
