Progress with Applique Jacket

I finished the applique on the back of the jacket and the sleeve. 
I thought I may run out of the heavy thread I was using to applique.  I had about 3 feet left on the spool!

I'll do some beading on the pieces next, and then start assembling the jacket.  I'll be busy the rest of this week and the weekend, so probably won't get to sew again until next week. 

I'm pleased with how the design has worked out.  The decorative stitching is something different than usual to anchor the applique.  Artsy.  It was fun to work on and I'm anxious to finish the jacket.

Later.

Your jacket is looking great, can't wait to see it finished. It really nice to see your detailed progression.

Ooh, looks great. I find sometimes applique ends up looking like printed fabric. Yours doesn't and is going to be so "one of a kind".
I especially love all the texture in it!
