It's no secret, quilt blocks are having a moment in the world of fashion and what better way to jump in than with your own unique design. Jen Tanner will show you just how easy it is to upcycle a denim jacket by adding a quilt block. Whether you pull an orphan block from your stash, put together a block especially for this project, or use a convenience panel (like the one shown in our photo), you'll walk out of class with your own signature statement piece! It's perfect timing to learn how fast and fun this is for gift giving too!

In this class, we will learn how to prepare a quilt block or panel for placement on your jacket by pattern tracing, cutting and adhering to batting. If your block or panel is large enough to fit the back yoke of your jacket as shown, great! If not, no problem! Smaller blocks look cool too! We will take time to do some basic straight-line machine quilting to give your block panel genuine texture. Finally we will finish the edges and attach the block to your jacket. You should have time to complete your upcycled jacket in class.

If you are interested in a panel similar to the one shown in the photo, Jen has a few available first come first serve.
