Angel Wreath Wall Quilt

You can hang this quilted "wreath" on your door or anywhere else in your home instead of a real wreath.

This charming quilt is very simple and quick to make. It can be done over a weekend. The quilt features designs from the Flying Angel Set.

The finished size of the quilt is about 18" x 18".

Besides embroidery thread, you will need

  • 1 fat quarter of light-colored fabric for the background;
  • 1/4 yard of green fabric for the wreath and binding,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • white or light cream polyester craft felt which we used instead of embroidery stabilizer. However, if you prefer, you can use a regular cut-away stabilizer.

Cutting:

Out of the light-colored fabric, cut

  • 1 square measuring 8 1/2" x 8 1/2"
  • 2 squares measuring 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 14"
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 18"
Out of green fabric, cut
  • 2 squares measuring 3 7/8" x 3 7/8"
  • 4 strips measuring 3" x 8 1/2"
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 39"-40" (for the binding)

Seam allowance is 1/4". Press every seam after you make it.

Sewing the Half Triangles:

Take the 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" light and green squares, place them in 2 pairs, face to face. With a graphic pencil draw a diagonal. Stitch on both sides of the diagonal, 1/4" from it.

Cut along the diagonal. Open the new 2-color squares. Press the seam allowance to the green. You will have 4 squares measuring 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" each.

Embroidery:

Now the quilt is ready for embroidery. Stabilize the the quilt with polyester craft felt (or cut-away stibilizer). Select embroidery threads. Decide where on the quilt you'd like your angels. Embroider them.

When the embroidery is done, cut away the felt around the embroidery close to the stitches.


Quilting and Finishing:

Now place the backing 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 along the lines of the embroidery, and all over the quilt in a free-motion style.

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 the binding.

The quilt is ready. Enjoy!



Happy Stitching!
