Sew the Liz Quilted Liner Jacket
Intermediate | 1 hour 33 min
Fiber artist, quilter, and sewist Natalie Ebaugh teaches you how to make a stylish and versatile liner jacket out of a found or antique quilt. Antique quilts have rich histories and stories, and as you wear your quilted coat, you carry these stories with you and also add your own. Natalie begins by walking you through selecting and purchasing the right quilt for your project, how to care for and mend antique pieces, how to construct a coat from start to finish, and how to make your own bias tape to bind all of your seams. With Natalie's modern design, there are minimal pattern pieces to put together, and you'll discover that making a beautiful, cozy coat is not as intimidating as you may think.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Swedish tracing paper or other tracing paper
  • Muslin material that can mimic the thickness of a quilted material such as fleece

  • Approx. 1/2 yard cotton fabric to make bias tape

  • All-purpose polyester thread (Natalie uses Gutermann Mara 100 All Purpose Thread from Wawak)
  • Hand sewing needles

  • Machine feet: Regular sewing foot, walking foot, edge stitch foot (do some research to find the right feet for your machine)
  • Machine needles: Schmetz Mictrotex size 70/10, 80/12, 90/14
