Connie Horne Wins for Quilted Coat - It's HOT

Feeling cold this winter? Check out this GORGEOUS quilted coat designed and stitched by Elk Grove, CA Sistah Quilter Connie Horne!

Ms. Horne, who is a member of the Elk Grove Quilt Guild, won a second place ribbon and $500 in the wearable art category at the 2007 Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara. Her “African Village Coat Ensemble,” consisted of a quilted coat, vest, pants and purse. The creation cost Horne about $150 to make, according to her local newspaper. (Photo by Laura Bemis)

“Give Me My Flowers,” one of Horne’s creations was published in “Snip It Sensations Bouquets” by Cindy Walters in 2002. Congratulations Connie!
