Besides embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon), you will need

  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • 1 fat quater of light gray fabric lightly patterned with winter landscape,
  • small amount of green, blue and yellow fabrics,
  • batting,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • quilting threads,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter (if you don't use rotary cutter, you'll need a graphic pencil and sharp scissors).
Tip: select embroidery threads by the color card, then select green, blue and yellow fabrics matching your threads.

Cutting:

Out of gray fabric, cut

  • a square measuring 8 1/2" x 8 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 10 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 16 1/2".
Out of green fabric, cut
  • strips measuring 1 1/2" x 8 1/2",
  • a strip measuring 1 1/2" x 10 1/2", and
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 11"-12" for the binding.
Out of blue fabric, cut
  • strips measuring 1 1/2" x 8 1/2",
  • a strip measuring 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" and
  • 3 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 11"-12" for the binding.

Emboridery

Stabilize the central square of the top with light-weight cut-away stabilizer. Embroider the Bluetit in Winter.

Cut away the excess stabilizer around the embroidery.



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 around 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 wall hanging is done. Enjoy!


Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
