"Welcome Spring" Quilted Wall Hanging with Embroidery

This charming Spring-themed project can easily be finished in one weekend. It's simple and fun to make. We used a design from the One Color Easter Rabbit Set for the mega hoop.

The finished size of the wall hanging is about 14" x 16".


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

  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • 1 fat quarter, or a piece large enough to be hooped, of light-colored fabric for embroidery;
  • scraps of yellow, blue, and green fabrics for the quilt;
  • batting;
  • fabric for the backing and binding;
  • quilting threads (white and blue),
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter (if you don't use a rotary cutter, you'll need a graphic pencil and sharp scissors);
  • fabric pencils, markers or paints.

Emboridery

Embroider one of the rabbit designs from the One Color Easter Rabbit Set with dark green thread. Use light-weight cut-away stabilizer for embroidery.
After the embroider is done, color the stitchout with fabric pencils, markers or paints. Follow the instructions of the dye's manufacture.


Trim the colored stitch-out to an 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" rectangle.
Remove the stabilizer around the embroidery. Do not remove the stabilizer under the embroidery.

Cutting:

Out of green fabric, cut
2 strips measuring 1 1/4" x 8 1/2" , and
2 strips measuring 1 1/4" x 11 1/2".

Cut the scraps into strips 2 1/2" and different lengths from 2 1/2" to 4 1/2".

Assembly of the Top:

Sew the 1 1/4" x 8 1/2" strips to the upper and lower edges of the stitch-out. Press the seams.

Sew the 1 1/4" x 11 1/2" strips to the left and right edges of the stitch-out. Press the seams.

Place 2 scrap strips of contrast colors on the working table face up, 1"-1 1/2" overlapping.

Use a ruler and rotary cutter to cut a slanted line across the overlapping part.

Sew the parts together along the cut line. Press the seam.

In the same way, attach the next 2 1/2" wide scrap to the end of this strip. Keep going until you have a strip measuring about 19" - 20".
Cut this strip into 2 strip measuring 9 1/2".

Sew the new strips to the upper and lower edges of the central part.

Repeat the procedure with the 2 1/2" wide scraps to make 2 more strips 16" long each.

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 in a free motion stipe around the embroidery. Then quilted each colored piece separately with flowers and leaves also in a free motion style.


Over the white ends, we quilted a sashiko design in a free-motion style with blue thread.


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 wall hanging is ready. Enjoy!

Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
