Fractured Bargello Jacket Pattern
Welcome to Nanette's Quilts. This lovely jacket pattern designed by Nanette Weaver is now available. The jacket is sweatshirt based and uses the stitch and flip method of attaching the bargello strips to the sweatshirt. This method quilts the jacket as you go so no additional quilting is needed except on the sleeve cuffs. Detailed fitting instructions are included for getting a good fit no matter your body shape. Additional fitting instructions are here on the web page for more detailed fitting. I teach this jacket as a class at Ann Arbor Sewing Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I work, and used feedback from my students to critique the pattern and address sewing issues from all levels of sewing skills. My students have been quilters and non-quilters alike and have all had great success with the pattern. Every jacket comes out differently depending on the fabric selection and your imagination. This jacket looks great in black and white with red accents as well as Christmas fabrics of red, green and gold for the holidays! The jacket is warm and comfortable from the start and gets even more comfy with wear and washing. My students have come back with huge smiles from all the complements their jackets have received. I was honored to film a segment of Kaye's Quilting Friends which was aired on PBS in the spring of 2007, and the DVD is now available.
