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.
