Quilt Coat Maker Experience Blog Posts

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.

Transparent Squares Quilt Block Tutorial

If you are new to transparency in quilting or need a refresher, this is a simple practice block to make to play around with fabric choices and the effects of transparency. Transparent Squares Quilt Block I posted a video on IGTV that explains the very basics of transparency in quilting. A short simplified version of what I shared is that transparency is the ability to see through layer(s) of an object. It can be real or implied. So in quilting, you can use fabric color choices to make implied transparency. The most basic way to achieve transparency, in my opinion, is to choose dark, medium and light values of one color. Understanding color structure is important, but being a master of it is not required to play around with transparency. For example, if a grey fabric has a lot of cool color blue undertones, then you have to be cognizant of how that specific fabric color plays with other colors.

Quilted Bookmark Tutorial

I’ve got a new tutorial to share – Quilted Bookmarks !  I recently shared a story on Instagram about a last minute decision to make quilted bookmarks for my daughter’s class as I was the scheduled Mystery Reader for the next day. You can see the set I made for the class in the image above. I’ve been making quilted bookmarks for my daughter for years. She loves them because they’re flexible and don’t permanently crease or break like paper bookmarks and don’t fall out as easy as heavier metal bookmarks. And since they are two layers and batting, they’re squishy and fun to hold!  Quilted bookmarks make great gifts for kids or for adults who still read physical copies of books. If you’re looking for a creative stocking stuffer or gift to give any time of the year, a quilted bookmark is a fun and fast project! It's also a great scrap-busting project, as well as a good opportunity to practice quilting!  Everything about a quilted bookmark can be customized to your needs. This is the gene

Crossword Puzzle Quilt

I loved designing the Crossword Puzzle Quilt! Last year, inspiration struck when I decided to make a quilt for an engaged couple. I know the woman professionally – we started working for a company around the same time. I was fresh out of school and awkward and tucked away in my apartment every night. After finding out some common interests, we got together a few times and ogled at TV reality stars. Through the years, she has always been very kind to me. After some heartbreaking personal experiences, she finally found a nice guy who makes her very happy. He has two children and they both brought several dogs into their relationship. She posts various hashtags/phrases to describe her relationship and good fortunes in life. I am a Wheel of Fortune FANATIC. My husband and I are competitive, especially when it comes to who can solve the puzzle first. I loved when they introduced the crossword puzzle on the show because I’m better at guessing words with few letters than answering clue
