Stained Glass Applique Wall Hanging or Tablerunner

In this project, we used the Stained Glass Applique Flower Panel design for the mega hoop to create a small, colorful wall hanging

The finished size is about 16 1/2" x 33".

You will need

  • base fabric (we recommend black) about 1/2 yard;
  • 4 fabrics in bright colors used for the wall-hanging top and for the applique,
  • small amount of white fabric for the applique,
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • scissors with curved ends for cutting away excess applique fabric,
  • rotary cutter and quiter's ruler, or ruler, pencil and scissors.
  • backing, batting and binding.


Please read the instructions on how to embroider and assemble the central panel.


Trim the central panel to 14 1/2" x 18 1/2".

Out of blue fabric, cut

  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 18 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 16 1/2";
Out of the yellow and orange fabrics each, cut 2 strips measuring 2" x 16 1/2",

Out of green fabric, cut 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 16 1/2".

Assembly of the Top:

Note: seam allowance is 1/4". Press every seam immediately after you make it.

Sew the blue 1 1/2" x 18 1/2 strips to the left and right edges of the front panel.

Sew the remaining blue, yellow, orange and green strips into two blocks:

Quilting and Finishing:

Press the top. Place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread the top over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free-motion style around the embroidery along the black lines and with a meandering pattern on the borders.

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 done. Enjoy!
