This is one of those cases where you fall in love with a fabric, and start creating something in your head around that fabric to make! That is how the quilted jacket entered Chloe’s Fall Collection. I fell in L-O-V-E with the Tula Pink Prince Charming Collection, and absolutely needed to make something with their Turtle Bay Fabric in Ivory.
Initially I was going to quilt around the actual design, but when that proved too time consuming and difficult I ended up doing a free motion range quilt design along the pattern pieces. This gave the jacket such a cute whimsical look, and I love how it turned out!
The quilting is completely optional, and you can make this jacket as lightweight or heavy as you would like. Perfect for the cooler temperatures heading our way!
