Designed with the transitional 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 straight seams, basic quilting, inserting a welt pocket, and applying bias binding.
Difficulty: Advanced Beginner
Light to mid-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. Extra fabric may be needed to match plaids, stripes, or one-way design prints.
5 yds of ½” wide double fold bias binding (or ½ yd extra fabric to make your own)
