Engineering & Quilting the Tamarack Jacket

In this session we will be discussing the different ways to “quilt” your jacket and help you to engineer your jacket design, whether you are working with quilt blocks, whole cloth, or easy patchwork pieces. 

  1. How to engineer the pieces like a quilt and determine placement.

  2. How to quilt pattern pieces

  3. Determining batting and other supplies needed

Pattern purchase is required. Pattern available for purchase at the store. 

Refer to pattern for fabric requirements (see below) or for additional customizations, from notes from the first lecture/demo Introducing the Tamarack Jacket.

Suggested Fabrics: 

Main & Lining Fabrics: Light to mid-weight cottons, linens, chambrays, and blends work well for this jacket. Since the fabric will be doubled and quilted to a batting avoid anything too heavy as the jacket may become excessively stiff.

Batting: High quality batting in cotton, wool, bamboo, or a blend. Choose the thickness based on how warm you want your coat to be.
