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
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
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:
Sew the blocks to the top and bottom edges of the central part.
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!
