I drew the quilting design on the fabric, along with the stitching lines of the coat pieces, and quilted most of it before I cut it out and joined the seams. The batting is cotton outing flannel used as a flatlining. The motifs are traditional Japanese blossoms, coupled with a variety of geometrics. The inside is fully lined so nothing of the workings ever show. I joined the lining and the coat with a wide bias binding, which does not show in this picture.
