About This Class

This project covers all the basics for making a piece of patchwork using squares. The basics includes cutting the pieces, sewing the pieces together, and pressing the seams. I have included instructions for both hand and machine sewing. 

The students can stop once the patchwork piece is completed or continue to making the finished item. For this class, I will be making an 18" square cushion cover.

I would love to see your choice of fabrics for the patchwork. Please post photos of your patchwork piece and the cushion cover, if you are following closely to my workshop.

I have used Malaysian batiks which were purchased from The Batik Boutique. The boutique at the moment only sells finished product. However, I'm honored to be part of the behind-the-scene which allows me to snap up a few of their beautiful batiks.

Really useful class. I've done several quilting courses before, but they all seem to assume some prior knowledge, so this course is great for absolute beginners. It would be really useful to have a course on how to bind the edges of a quilt.
I had no idea how to even begin sowing, and I learned everything I needed for the basics. Zarina shows what tools are necessary and step by step instructions on what to do next. Highly recommend it for beginners.
