Quilted Jacket Workshop
What could be more comforting than a quilt coat? It's the latest trend, but I'm still conflicted about my feelings when I see a "vintage" quilt made into a garment??? Thanks to Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts, we don't have to be conflicted and we are not relegated to the fabric combination of a vintage quilt. We can curate our own favorite fabrics and make a quilt coat.
Join me this fall as we turn stars into the current fashion trend - a one-of-a-kind quilted jacket which reflects our own personal style. This pattern is fat eighths friendly so it's a great stash buster. You can also use blocks and fabrics left over from previous projects for a more scrappy look.
If you are a beginner, I will walk you through making the star blocks featured in the pattern. If you are seasoned quilter you may want to curate your own collection of favorite blocks. I will help you put the jacket together including setting those sleeves!
PLUS once your jacket pieces are complete I will quilt them on my Gammill long arm in the all over quilting pattern of your choice.
This workshop will be done in two parts with three weeks in between so that I can long arm quilt your jacket pieces! That's right, the quilting of your pieces is included and when you return for part 2 of the workshop, we will put your jacket together.
Workshop Part 1 - September 11, 2021 and October 9, 2021
Workshop Part 2 - October 2, 2021 and October 30, 2021
Workshop Fee includes printed pattern, all instruction and long arm quilting of your jacket pieces to take place between Workshop 1 and Workshop 2.
A light lunch is also provided as well as coffee, tea and water. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know.
If the dates above do not work for your schedule, I am also available to teach this workshop as a Private Session for an additional fee. Please select PRIVATE SESSION DATES in the drop down menu and I will schedule with you personally.
*Workshops are non-refundable, but if for some unforeseen reason you must cancel, it can be applied to a future workshop.
