The Modern Quilt Jacket

Dive into the current trend of the Modern Quilt jacket. What makes the Modern Jacket different from the traditional quilt jacket? How can I get started? What are some patterns that can be used? This is a 45 minute presentation then time for questions.

Quilt Photography

Discover how to take high quality photos with your smartphone (since that’s a tool most of us own). I share my tools for taking pictures on your own when you don’t have someone to help you hold your quilts. I also share the free phone App that I use for editing my pictures and the edits I make. This presentation will give you enough information you will feel like you’ve just taken a mini workshop. It’s about an hour long lecture and then time for questions.

Lecture & Trunk Show

I would love to share my story with your group or guild about how I became a modern quilter. I’ll share my journey from a garment sewist to quilter, how I discovered pattern testing, which brought me to my love of pattern designing. I will share all my current designs and how I find inspiration and design my quilt patterns. Of course we will leave plenty of time to ask any questions.

Recorded Virtual Workshops

Making a quilt jacket is easier than you think, and even easier when you have an expert walking you through the process. 

The Piedmont Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a Zoom Quilt Jacket Workshop with Erin Grogan of LoveSewModern. By the end of the workshop Erin will have:

– Walk you through the planning of your Quilt Jacket.
– How to take your proper body measurements.
– How to correctly print and assemble PDF quilt pattern pieces.
– How to grade your pattern pieces to be the perfect fit for YOU!
– How to cut out your pattern pieces.
– How to sew an armscye. 
– How to sew a button hole.
– How to attach rivets and snaps.

Included in the workshop is a Planning Worksheet, and a Measurements Guide Worksheet. You will also receive the hood add-on drafted by Erin. 

The workshop is a recording of a live class. You will be able to ask Erin questions along the way if you get stuck on any steps. I’m happy to schedule a 30 minute 1 on 1 Zoom session with you if you have any questions.

All files will be available for instant download once purchased and zoom links will be included. Please feel free to reach out for any additional questions.
