Cowboy Hats Wall Quilt

This charming wall quilt is very easy to make and probably won't take you more than a couple of afternoons.

The wall quilt features the designs from the Redwork Cowboy Hat Set for the large (5" x 7") hoop.

The finished size of the quilt is about 30" x 30".

We used 5 quilting fabrics:

  • light beige for the central part of the blocks (1 fat quarter),
  • blue with stars for the blocks, borders and binding (about 1/2 yard),
  • patterned taupe (1 fat quarter) for blocks A,
  • red-brown (1 fat quarter) for block B.
  • fawn (1 fat quarter) also for block B
You will also need fabric for the backing, and batting.
For embroidery use embroidery thread (either rayon or polyester) and light-weight cut-away stabilizer.

Cutting:

Out of light beige fabric, cut 4 squares measuring 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" each.

Out of blue fabric with a star pattern, cut

  • 8 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 7 1/2",
  • 8 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 9 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 3" x 26 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 3" x 31 1/2".
  • For the binding cut the rest of the fabric into 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric.
Out of patterned taupe fabric, cut
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 9 1/2", and
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 13 1/2".
Out of fawn fabric, cut
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" and

Sewing the Blocks:

The quilt uses 2 similar types of blocks, which we have called A and B. You will need 2 blocks of each type. If you'd like to make a larger quilt, you should make additional blocks.

Block A:

For this block you will need a light beige square, strips of blue fabric with a star pattern and taupe strips.

Sew the 1 1/2" x 7 1/2" blue strips to the upper and lower edges of the 7 1/2" square. Press the seams.

Embroidery:

Decide which design goes into each block and embroider the designs one by one. Please don't forget to stabilize the central part of the blocks.

After the embroidery is finished, cut away the excess stabilizer.

Quilting and Finishing::

Spread the backing on your table, face down. Cover the backing with batting. Cover with the working piece. Pin all three layers together with 1" pins.
We quilted around the embroidery and all over the quilt in a free-motion style. Remove the pins while quilting.

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.

Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
