Stained Glass Applique Flower Panel

These are instructions on how to embroider and assemble the Stained Glass Applique Flower Panel.

The design comes in 3 sizes: for large hoop (5" x 7"), mega hoop (6" x 10"), and commercial hoop (10" x 12").

The design has a double zig-zag-stitch finish. We recommend to use cotton or polyester machine quilting threads for the finish.

To make the panel you need to embroider the design 4 times and then sew the parts together. The final size of the panel is about 7 1/2" x 14" (large hoop), 11" x 22" (mega hoop) and 12 1/2" x 23 1/2" (commercial hoop).

You will need

  • base fabric (we recommend black);
  • fabric for the applique stabilized with light-weight iron-on stabilizer (we used batiks as applique fabric),
  • light-weight stabilizer (a light-weight cut-away stabilizer works for most projects),
  • scissors with curved ends for cutting away the applique,
  • rotary cutter and quilter's ruler, or ruler, pencil and scissors.

Embroidery:

Upload the file into the machine. Stabilize and hoop the base fabric. Start the machine. It will embroider the outline for the first applique.

Assembly of the Panel

Embroider each file twice, so you have 4 stitch-outs.
First we'll sew the left part of the panel.
Take 2 stitch-outs - the right one and its mirror image.
Trim the lower/upper edge of the stitch-outs leaving 1/4" of black background.

Cut the right edge of the stitch-outs leaving a 3/4" margin of black background.

Place the stitch-outs face to face, align the trimed edges. Sew along the short edge with seam allowance 1/2". Please note that this means that part of the applique will be inside the seam allowance.

For the right side of the panel, trim and sew the second pair of stitch-outs in the same way. Press the seam open.

Place both parts face to face, align the long trimmed edge. Stitch with seam allowance 1/2". Press the seam open.
