Quilted Sweatshirt Jacket

Create an easy quilted jacket.  Basically, a layer of fabric (quilt blocks, strips, squares) is quilted to the framework of a sweatshirt, creating a jacket.  The technique is easy, and can be used to make an assortment of jackets. The jacket in this class will use Stack-N-Slash blocks with 18 different fabrics.  Buy a Layer Cake, or dig into your stash for the fabrics.

Skill Level:  Confident Beginner
