My Fun Quilts of 6″ Squares. Made with Love. Cuddled and Comforted.
But Now Getting a Bit Worn and Tired.
Maybe the Quilts are Ready for a New Adventure?
The Quilts are a Crazy Mix of Patterns and Fabrics…Cotton, Flannel, Velvet.
One Twin Size Quilt.
Lined with a 100% Cotton Sheet. Layered with 100% Cotton Batting.
The Inspiration Pattern – Boxy, Simple Lines. Easy to Sew Cropped Jacket.

No Pockets. No Buttons.
Let’s Try This. First, Cut out the Pattern Pieces.
Decide which sections of the Quilt will be the Front and Back of the Jacket.
Cutting the Front 2 Pieces. Can you see the batting and inside lining?
I know it’s a Bit Wild. But sometimes Wild is Good!
This portion of the Quilt will be the Sleeves. I’m loving the Faded Look.
Cutting the Sleeve pieces.
Now to Create the Jacket!
The Back and Inset Sleeve.
Now for the Real Trick(!) Double Fold Bias Tape to Trim all the Edges.

I was most nervous about this part. But Slow and Steady Wins.
Love the Contrast of the Black Trim with the Faded Crazy Quilt Squares.
