  • Barb - Quilted Reversible Britex Jacket!

    August 1, 2018 by Britex Fabrics


    Barb is a retired teacher whose passion is sewing! We adore this quilted, reversible jacket that she made out of our unique Britex Fabrics San Francisco cotton fabric that she got as a Christmas gift from her husband. Barb started off with a Rag Merchant blouse sewing pattern, but modified it to suit her shape and her needs. Barb has the layers prequilted, then cuts the pattern out. With this particular jacket, Barb used Ultrasuede® to bind the edges and nifty Golden Gate Bridge buttons. She prefers either low-loft bamboo or cotton batting. Barb has sewn over 68 of these fabulous jackets, all from a variety of fabrics. We'd love to see her fabric stash...I bet it's a wondrous mélange of colors and textures!
