3 Angels Coloring Wall Quilt with Redwork Design

This charming wall quilt uses blue, pink and lavender, making it appear soothing and calm. We used left-over scraps of fabric for the project. The embroidery design used on the quilt is 3 Angels by Perugino from the Redwork: Fine Art Section of our catalog.

The finished size of the quilt is about 22 1/2" x 27".

You will need:

  • 11 1/2" x 16 1/2" piece of pale blue cotton fabric for the central part;
  • scraps of lilac, light blue of different tones, and dark blue;
  • fabric for the backing,
  • low-loft polyester batting.
For embroidery, we used embroidery polyester threads, and light-weight cut-away stabilizer and fabric markers, crayons or paints.

Cutting:

Seam allowance is included and is 1/4".
The central part is 12" x 16 1/2".

Out of dark blue fabric, cut

  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 12"
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 18 1/2".
Out of scraps of light blue and lilac fabrics cut 90 squares measuring 2" x 2".
Out of scraps of light blue fabric cut 36 squares measuring 2 3/8" x 2 3/8".
Out of scraps of lilac fabric cut 18 squares measuring 2 3/8" x 2 3/8".
Out of scraps of dark blue fabrics cut 18 squares measuring 2 3/8" x 2 3/8".

Making the Blocks:

There are 18 blocks, 9 of them feature dark blue stars and 9 feature lilac stars. You will need to make half triangles. To make them, take the 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" squares. Pair up the 18 dark blue squares with 18 light blue squares, and the 18 lilac squares with the 18 light blue squares. Take each pair, and place the squares face to face.

With a pencil, draw a diagonal on the lighter square. Stitch a scant 1/4" from the pencil line on both sides.

Cut along the line. Open the new squares. Press the seam towards the red. Trim the ears. Repeat for all the pairs. You should get 36 dark blue-light blue squares, and 36 lilac-pale blue squares.

Using half triangle and 2" x 2" squares, arrange them into 9 blocks with dark blue stars and 9 blocks with lilac stars:

Assembling the Top

Don't forget to press seams after each operation. Always press the seams to the darker fabric, where possible.

Sew the 1 1/2" x 12" dark blue strips to the left and right sides of the central part.

Sew the 1 1/2" x 18 1/2" dark blue strips to the upper and lower sides of the central part

Sew 6 blocks into 2 rows, 3 blocks each. One row should contain 2 lilac and one blue star. The second row should contain 2 blue and one lilac stars.

Sew the rows ro the left and right sides of the quilt.

Sew the remaining 12 blocks into 2 rows, 6 blocks in each. The rows should start with blue star blocks and end with lilac star blocks.

Sew the rows to the upper and lower edges of the quilt top.

Embroidery

Stabilize the central part with light-weight cut-away stabilizer and make the embroidery of the designs from the 3 Angels by Perugino.

Using fabric markers, crayons or paints, color the angels. Follow the manufacture's directions. To stabilize the brand of markers we used, we had to press the colored picture with a hot iron with heavy steam.

Quilting:

Now place the backing/lining on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted around the embroidery and made free-motion quilting all over the work.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with binding.

The quilt is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
