Let's make a quilted coat together!
Spring means we get to store our parkas and switch them for something lighter and cozier like a handmade quilted coat! Join me in this fun quilty adventure of stitching up your own Hovea Coat + Etched Diamond Quilt x Hovea Coat Pattern Extension!
Since there are quite a few steps to tackle, I've broken down this virtual quilt workshop into two sessions:
Session 1 - 6hrs:
In Session 1 you're going to work on piecing the Etched Diamond Quilt patchwork motif featured on the back and pockets. We'll talk about best practices for piecing and getting your patchwork ready for quilting.
Homework from Session 1: You'll continue working on your patchwork pieces and finish the quilting at home.
Session 2 - 6 hrs:
In Session 2 you're going to cut out your pattern pieces and assemble your coat. You'll also start attaching your binding to enclose your seams. I'll share a demo of big stitch hand binding for a fun added quilty detail.
Homework from Session 2: You'll continue attaching your binding and finishing her up by hand at home.
The virtual workshops will occur on Session 1: Saturday, April 22, 2023, and Session 2: Saturday, May 6, 2023, from 10 am to 4 pm EST. You need to attend both sessions to cover all the instructions for the quilted coat.
This is a virtual workshop that will occur over Zoom. I will send you a personalized link to join a few days before the workshop.
