Christmas Window Wall Quilt

There's little time left till Christmas, but you can still make this small wall quilt. The designs from the One-Color Vintage Christmas Set for the large (5" x 7") hoop are fast to embroider and the quilt is quick and easy to assemble.

The finished size is about 22" x 28".


You will need :

  • embroidery threads (either rayon or polyester),
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer, preferably the iron-on one,
  • 1/2 yard of black cotton fabric,
  • pieces of pastel-colored fabrics (we used batiks),
  • batting,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • quilting black thread,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter, or pencil and scissors.

Embroidery:

Upload the files from the One-Color Vintage Christmas Set into the machine. Hoop the pastel fabrics with light-weight cut-away stabilizer. Embroider the files one by one.


After the stitch-outs are done, trim them to 6 1/2" squares. Do not remove the stabilizer.

Cutting:

Out of one of the pastel fabric, cut 2 squares measuring 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".

Out of black fabric, cut

  • 8 strips measuring 1 1/4" x 6 1/2",
  • 3 strips measuring 1 1/4" x 20",
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 20",
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 23",
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 12", and
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 14".
Cut the remaining black fabric into 3 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding.

Assembly of the Top:

Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press each seam after you made it.

Lay-out the stitch-outs into 4 rows. The first row should have a stitch-out in the center and two blank squares to either side. We put the stitch-out of the Holy Family in the center of that row. Rows 2-4 should have 3 stitch-outs each.

Sew black 1 1/4" x 6 1/2" strips between the squares.

Christmas Holy Family Wall Quilt

Sew the black 1 1/2" x 23" strips to the left and right edges of the quilt. Note that these strips are short. They should touch the bottom edge, but do not reach the upper edge.

Christmas Holy Family Wall Quilt

Sew the black 1 1/2" x 12" strip to the upper edge of the quilt. This strip is short and is meant to be placed in the center. It should completely cover the top edge of the central block and overlap the blocks on either side.

Christmas Holy Family Wall Quilt

Position your quilter's ruler on the diagonal of the upper (blank) blocks, so that your 1/4" marking line goes straight through both corners.

If you work with a rotary cutter, cut along this line. If you work with scissors, draw a line, then cut along the line with scissors.

Repeat for the other side.

Sew the 1 1/2" x 14" black strips along the freshly cut edges. The black strips will protrude at both ends. You can trim them now or after quilting.

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 stitched the quilt in the ditch, and quilted the borders with straight parallel lines 1/4" aside.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam, trim and square the work.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.


Enjoy!
