Winter Scapes Wall Quilt

This winter-themed wall quilt features the designs from Christmas Street Set in the cross-stitch technique. Because of the small size, the quilt is quick and simple to put together.

The finished size is about 8" x 25", making it good for a narrow wall space.

You will need

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon) according to the color card,
  • medium-weight iron-on cut-away stabilizer or polyester craft felt used instead of stabilizer,
  • light-colored cotton fabric for embroidery,
  • scraps of cotton fabrics to match the coloration of the embroidery (choose them after you made the embroidery, we used yellow, blue and brown),
  • batting and backing,
  • quilting threads to match the fabrics,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter (or graphic pencil and sharp scissors).

Embroidery:

Stabilize the light-colored fabric with medium-weight iron-on cut-away stabilizer for embroidery. Upload the designs into the machine and embroider them one by one.

After the embroidery is done, first trim the stitch-outs to 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".
Then cut away the stabilizer close to the embroidery.

Cutting:

Out of yellow and blue fabrics each, cut

  • 4 strips measuring 1" x 4 1/2",
  • 6 strips measuring 1" x 6 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 1" x 16".
Out of brown fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 23" and
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Use the remaining fabric for the binding.

Sewing the Parts:

Note: Seam allowance is 1/4". Please don't forget to press a seam after you made it.

Sew all the blue and yellow strips together lengthwise into pairs. You will get:

  • 4 blue-yellow strips 4 1/2" long,
  • 6 blue-yellow strips 6 1/2" long and
  • 1 blue-yellow strip 16" long.


Subcut the 16" strip into 16 pieces 1" wide.

Take 2 of the 1" strips. Flip one of the strips so that the blue square of one strip lines up with the yellow square of the other. Sew the strips together. Repeat for the other 14 strips to get a total of 8 checkered squares.

Sew the squares to the ends of the 4 1/2" strips.

First stitch-out - blue strips on the inside, yellow outside.
Second stitch-out - yellow strips on the inside, blue outside.
Third stitch-out - blue strips on the inside, yellow outside.

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 in a free motion style all over the quilt.

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 done. Enjoy!
