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.
How to engineer the pieces like a quilt and determine placement.
How to quilt pattern pieces
Determining batting and other supplies needed
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.
& yds of 1/2" double fold bias binding (or 1/2 yd extra fabric to make your own)
