Rigel Bomber

My next project for Mood Sewing Network is a Rigel Bomber by Papercut Patterns

And I am using this wonderful wool denim from Mood Fabrics

Here is the description, from Italy, a wool denim that's as soft as an old sweater.  Medium-weight.  We'd make this into boxy tops and jackets.

I am going to quilt the sleeves.  I have some lightweight quilt batting which I layered with a piece of the wool denim.  I used my quilt ruler to make a 45 degree line from the selvedge.  I  stitched with a 3.0 stitch and my walking foot.

I used this attachment for the spacing

and here is one piece with the quilted cross-hatch lines

I lightened the picture so you could see the stitching.  I tell you this was the hardest stitching lines to see.  I put my finger on the previous line and I could feel the stitching, that helped to guide the fabric.

One sleeve panel is complete and I will work on the other one tomorrow night.  After I finish the quilting I will cut out the sleeves.

I am looking forward to working on this jacket.


  1. Love how soft the fabric looks. Should make a real cozy jacket.
