Jacket with less fullness

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Design It, Quilt It: Free-Form Techniques Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/class/design-it-quilt-it-free-form-techniques/121 What are you most proud of? I bought the pattern in 1985 and was able to walk right to it. The jacket is comfortable, fits well, and can be worn in my life for so many of my activities. I am so pleased with it's outcome. I have come full circle. I started quilting with clothing and now am back to it. But this jacket doesn't look like something that could be made at home.. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you haven't taken Cindy's class, take it. It is amazing how easy it is do design and do quilting designs that look so complex yet they are simple lines.

What you will need

  • Pale denim lightweight with dark denim blue stitching. Judy Mathison Quilt as you go Log Cabin Jacket and straight collar change

Q&A with Deb Cavanaugh

JolovestoQuilt asked:
It looks too beautiful to wear and risk something happening to it. Maybe I say that because its rare to make it to 10am without my boys smearing something on me. Love it
Deb Cavanaugh answered:
I spilled teryaki sauce on it the first time I wore it. Thankfully it rinsed off without washing the whole jacket. I was picking up my husband's take out container and really got a lot on it. I was so lucky it came out. I wear it all the time. Most people do not even realize I made it. I can't believe I made it.
dkaym asked:
WOW! Did you quilt the fabric and then make the jacket or vice versa?
Deb Cavanaugh answered:
The pieces of the jacket are quilted first. I put an outline of the piece on the fabric and then add at least an inch all the way around. The quilting causes the piece to pull up. And if I am going to wash it before cutting out the piece, I allow an extra 2" all the way around each pattern piece.
