This striking quilted jacket was made from two very bold and bright Kaffe Fassett prints. The Fassett graphics, while beautiful, can be challenging to use in garments because they can overwhelm one. Rae tamed these wild prints with a calming batik in similar (but not quite so strong) colors and a technique she read about in Maverick Quilts by Alethea Ballard. This particular technique is called “Jalousie”. Quilting books offer great ideas and techniques that can be scaled and adapted for terrific jackets!
