Summer Sunrise Wall Quilt

This is a small, cute art quilt that’s very quick and easy to put together. It makes a gorgeous gift! Though we used the design Summer Sunset, the colors of the fabric -- yellow, pink and pale aqua blue -- actually make it look more like a sunrise.

The finished size is about 13 1/2" x 16". The original quilt can be purchased from our Etsy store!


You will need

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon), choose color to your taste,
  • light- to medium-weight tear-away stabilizer,
  • about 1/2 yard of batik with pale yellow, pink and blue coloration,
  • small amount of blue fabric, enough to cut 4 strips 1" wide and about 10"-14" long,
  • backing and bating.

Embroidery:

Upload the design Summer Sunset into your machine. Stabilize your fabric, and embroider the design.

We chose blue thread to match the color of the border.

Cutting:

Trim the stitch-out to 8 1/2" x 11 1/2".

Out of blue fabric, cut

  • 1 strip measuring 1" x 9 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 1" x 11 1/2" and
  • 1 strip measuring 1" x 13 1/2";
Out of the main fabric, cut
  • 1 strip measuring 2 1/2" x 9 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 13 3/4",
  • 1 strip measuring 2 1/2" x 13 1/2", and
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding. Alternatively you can make binding out of strips of blue, pink and pale yellow fabrics.

Assembly of the Top:

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

Sew the blue strips measuring 1" x 11 1/2" to the left and right edges of the stitch-out.

Sunrise Wall Quilt Step 6

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!
