Wool-Tweed Patchwork Throw

Steps:7
Traditionally, patchwork quilts are made from fabric remnants that are too small to be used in other sewing projects. But for this variation, three men's wool tweed sport coats are cut up to provide the fabric squares needed to make this cozy patchwork throw. To prepare the tweed for cutting, simply take apart each jacket at the seams; remove the lining and facing, if possible; and iron the pieces flat.
