I made these using the same pattern as this tutorial I wrote:

But with these ones I used the quilt as you go method to make the fabric and batting layer, you will need to follow the instructions from the link above to make the jacket but here is an extra few tutorial steps for anyone wanting to try this quilt as you go strip method:


1. Once you have followed the steps in the link above to create a pattern and cut the batting you begin by applying 2 strips of fabric right sides together to cover the end of the batting, I have started at the neckline but you can start at either end:


2. Once you have stitched them on, iron the 2nd strip back so it is right side up and you are ready to apply another strip in the same way


3. Once I have added a few rows I trim away the excess to reveal the neckline shape  and begin to see how it will look, I don't plan my strip placement ahead of time I just improvise the color scheme as I go:


 4. You can stitch squares into rows first and then add the row in the same manner as well:



Once you have covered the batting you are ready to complete the jacket by using the tutorial link which is also under my tutorial tab if you ever need to refer back to it.
