Would you like to learn how to make your own decorative cushions in colours to match your room or personalize stitched gifts?

You will learn 3 different methods of applique, add a little bit of quilting, and choose between a zipped, buttoned or envelope back to complete your cushion cover.

 This will be a 6 week course covering machine and hand applique techniques, along with 3 separate closures for a cushion cover. You will complete some separate panels in the first weeks, and choose one and make it into an 18" cushion cover. You will quilt this for a  front panel then choose between the overlap back, a buttoned back or a zipped closure to complete your cover

You can, of course make all your panels into cushions, but there may not be time during the course.
