Flower Applique Wall Hanging

This is a very simple project that features designs from the Flower Applique Block set. It can add a cozy touch to your living room or den.

The finished size of the wall hanging is about 26" x 32".

For the project, we used

  • 1 yard of black fabric,
  • scraps of green, red, brown and yellow fabrics for the applique,
  • red and yellow rick-rack,
  • 3/8" wide green trim.
You will also need batting and fabric for the backing.

Embroidery:

Graph your black fabric into twelve 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" squares. Do not cut them out yet.
Stabilize each square with your favorite light-weight cut-away stabilizer.

Make the applique as described in the instructions.

Cutting:

Cut out 12 squares with embroidery. Each square measures 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".

Out of the black fabric, cut

  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 18 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 32 1/2"
  • 3 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding.
Cut the red rick-rack into 2 strips 27" long, and 2 strips 33" long.
Cut the yellow rick-rack into 2 strips 27" long, and 2 strips 33" long.
Cut the green trim into into 2 strips 27" long, and 2 strips 33" long.

Sewing:

Sew the blocks into four rows, three blocks in each row.

Sew the rows together.

Sew the black 4 1/2" x 18 1/2" strips to the upper and lower edges of the working piece.

Sew the black 4 1/2" x 32 1/2" strips to the left and right edges of the woking piece.

Position the red rick-rack strips on the borders 1/2" from the blocks. Pin. Top-stitch in place.

Position the green trim strips on the borders 1/2" from the red strips. Pin. Top-stitch in place.

Position the yellow rick-rack strips on the borders 1/2" from the green trim. Pin. Top-stitch in place.

Quilting and Finishing:

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

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins. Quilt around the applique edges in a free-motion style. Quilt the rest of the work in the ditch.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and trim the work - the opposite sides should be straight and of the same length. Finish the raw edges with binding.

The wall hanging is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
