Grainline Studio : Tamarack Jacket
Designed with the trasitional seasons in mind, the Tamarack Jacket is a warm and stylish quilted coat perfect for spring and fall layering. Follow one of the two quilting designs included or design your own to make your Tamarack totally original to you! You'll stay toasty thanks to the inner layer of cotton or wool batting, while the roomy welt pockets will keep your belongings safe and your hands warm.
Techniques involved include sewing a straight seam, basic quilting, inserting a welt pocket, and applying bias binding.
Light to medium weight cottons, linens, chambrays, and blends work well for this jacket. Since the fabric will be doubled and quilted to a batting avoid anything too heavy, as the jacket may become excessively stiff.
Thread, 5 yards of 1/2" wide double fold bias binding (or 1/2 yard extra fabric to make your own), 1/8 yd fusible interfacing, high quality quilt batting in Twin size ( 72" x 80")
