Quilted Christmas Jacket

Quilted Christmas Jacket

This colors in this quilted jacket give it a Christmas feel, but Rae enjoys wearing it all winter because it doesn’t have truly Christmasy themes.  The main fabric is a traditional Provençal woodblock print.  The sleeves and front band are also a woodblock print fabric, but in this case a gift from a friend who had been in India.  The small floral used in the cuff and band facing and piping fabrics came from a local quilt store. Rae free motion quilted the fronts and back, and the sleeves were channel quilted, to a black china silk lining before constructing the jacket.  This jacket features split turnback cuffs (from Sleeve & Cuff Variations) and a Faux Shawl Collar (from Band Variations & Pockets).  You can also read our recommended techniques for making a quilted jacket in Tips for Quilted Jackets.
