The Quiltsmart Coat Book

Mattie created Quiltsmart, Inc. in 1994. She raised and clothed three children and several unsuspecting dogs in quilted outfits. She shares her years of trial & error, and discovery & success in this book. If you are thinking of making a quilt coat, this book is for you! Pair Quiltsmart quilts (easy quilt patterns printed on interfacing) with the coat pattern of your choice and you’ll be hearing “I love your coat!” everywhere you go!

View inspiring traditional and modern Quiltsmart quilt patterns that are “coat-friendly”.

Information on how to choose a coat pattern & those that we have made and love! Find tips about the construction of coats, closures, pockets, collars, hoods,….. and more!

Not a garment maker? Not a quilter? Mattie is a lifetime garment maker as well as a quilter. Both crafts cross over easily, but many quilters fear garments, and many garment makers fear quilting.
Fear not! You can do it!

Other than my Quiltblox patterns, quilt labels, and other printable designs – most of the items in my shop link to Amazon. Those prices change (often for the better) and Amazon provides great detail and reviews for every item. I can search out and offer you the best of the best items in each category – without having to stock that item on my physical shelves. This saves you the time and energy of having to search out these items on your own.

Will I earn a small commission – should you decide to make a purchase? Maybe, I hope so. Does that change the price you pay for each item? Not in any way – you only pay the listed price for any item you choose to purchase.

Here’s the other benefit – Free Shipping is always available with a minimum Amazon order and delivery is normally very quick.
