Got an old quilt that has seen better days but you can’t part with it? Or maybe an old store bought quilt you love so much? Learn how to turn it into a jacket that will be wearable for years to come in all seasons! This workshop will cover from start to finish how to select a quilt, cut it out properly, and assemble it into the quilt coat of your dreams! You’ll learn how to cut up a quilt to get that specific pattern or pieces highlighted in your coat, and how to assemble a quilt coat with ease and confidence. Participants will cut out their jacket, and learn how/begin to assemble the coat and add finishing to it. Class fee includes a pattern for you to keep as well as sewing notions, although you may choose to purchase different notions on your own.
You may bring your own quilt (full size or larger, or multiple quilts), or add one to your cart at checkout to use one provided by Perennial. NOTE: We will only provide a quilt if you add this option at checkout. If you end up finding a quilt to bring for class, we can refund you the quilt add-on fee.
