Thanksgiving Wall Quilt with Embroidery

This colorful Thanksgiving quilt features the patterns from the Redwork Quilting Block Set II.

The finished size is about 39" x 39".

You will need:

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon)
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • 4 fabrics of autumn colors: about 1/2" yard each of light green, forest green, light brown fabric, about 1 yard of orange fabric;
  • batting and backing,
  • quilting thread to match the fabrics,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter (or graphic pencil and sharp scissors);
  • graphic pencil or fabric disappearing marker and a ruler.

Emboridery

Stabilize the light green fabric with light-weight cut-away stabilizer for embroidery. Upload the designs into the machine and embroider them one by one with a dark thread - e.g black, dark brown, dark green.

Trim all stitch-outs to 7" x 7" squares.



Cutting:

Out of orange fabric, cut

  • 12 squares measuring 7 1/2" x 7 1/2",
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric for binding.
Out of dark forest green fabric cut 12 squares measuring 7 1/2" x 7 1/2".

Out of light brown fabric cut 24 squares measuring 5" x 5".

Out of light-green fabric cut 24 squares measuring 3" x 3".

Block:

Place orange and green 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" squares in pairs face to face. Align the edges. With a marker draw a diagonal. Stitch 1/4" on each side of the diagonal.

Thanksgiving Wall Quilt

Cut along the diagonal. Open the new half-triangle squares. They should be 7" x 7". You'll have 24 of them.

Sew the new squares in 6 blocks, 4 squares per block.

Assembly of the Top:

Sew all stitch-outs in pairs, then sew the pairs together to form a central panel.

Thanksgiving Wall Quilt

Sew the block rows to the left and right edges of the central part.

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 with a meandering pattern all over the top.

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.



Your quilt is ready. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
