Sew Some 'Hope' Patchwork Mini Quilt or Cushion

Learn how to make this patchwork cushion at a time that's convenient to you in this On-Demand class.
  • Do you need a bit of Hope after 2020? I know I do! Which is why I designed this cushion / mini quilt.
  • Are you a visual learner? Need a bit of extra help than a pattern normally provides? Then my on-demand video sewing class may be just what you are looking for!
2020 has been tough, and I thought we could all use a little extra Hope right now.  I'm feeling hopeful as vaccines are being approved!  So one day, we'll be able to have 'in person' classes again.  But for now I have recorded a video class of my new HOPE Cushion / Mini Quilt Pattern. 

The pattern is a traditionally pieced design of the word 'Hope' with a love heart as the 'o'.  The class includes instructions on how to sew the Hope panel and then turn it into a cushion or mini quilt. I also include some bonus videos on demonstrating free motion quilting and how I bind my quilts.  

This cushion would make a wonderfully thoughtful gift for someone who needs a little hope! 

Not everyone is comfortable sewing straight from the pattern.  This class will help you if you prefer to watch the tutor sew the item before beginning yours.  Now you can do that from your own home without having to attend a class in person!

 "I loved watching your recordings Jo. I am a visual learner and followed you step by step and pausing the video until I caught up. Learnt a lot, thank you Jo."
