Makers have been constructing quilt coats for a long time, but there seems to have been a resurgence in their popularity in the last couple of years. We’ve started compiling some blog posts from makers who have made quilt coats and share their own experiences. This information may be valuable to you as you start your quilt coat journey! With posts ranging from cutting up a 60 year old family quilt and turning it into a jacket to a look at how maker’s made specific patterns, there’s a wealth of knowledge we’d love to share with you!
For each post, we have included the maker’s first name, Instagram handle, the title of their blog post or web page name and a link to the post.
