Fall Colorscapes Wall Hanging

This charming quilt is very easy to make! It uses the designs from the Autumn Redwork Set IV for the large (5" x 7") hoop.

The finished size is about 17 1/2" x 27 1/2".


You will need :

  • embroidery threads (either rayon or polyester in a dark hue, we chose dark brown),
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • 9 solid cotton fabrics in different "autumn" colors - sand, yellow, umber, etc.
  • 1/4 yard of patterned fabric for sashing and borders,
  • 1/4 yard of solid fabric for the binding (we chose dark brown to match the embroidery),
  • batting,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • quilting threads of matching the fabrics colors,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter, or pencil and scissors.

Embroidery:

You can choose to embroider the blocks before or after you assemble the top.
If you embroider before trimming the blocks to size, you'll have more waste fabric.
If you embroider after assembly, and an embroidery problem occurs, you'll have to rip the top and re-assemble. So the choice is yours.

We prefer to make the embroidery after assembly when working with small quilts like this one.

If you prefer to embroider first, embroider 9 files from the Autumn Redwork Set IV on fabrics of different colors. After the embroidery is done, trim each stitch-out to 5" x 8 1/2" blocks.

Cutting:

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

If you prefer to make the embroidery after assembly, out of solid colored fabric, cut 9 rectangles of different colors measuring 5" x 8 1/2".

Out of the patterned fabric for the sashing and borders, cut

  • 6 strips measuring 1" x 8 1/2"
  • 2 strips measuring 1" x 15"
  • 2 stripz measuring 2" x 25 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 2" x 18"

Out of the fabric for the binding, cut 3 strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric.

Assembly of the Top:

Lay out the colored rectangles in 3 rows, 3 rectangles in each row.
Sew the 1" x 8 1/2" sashing strips between the rectangles.

If you chose to embroider after piecing (as we did), stabilize each colored block with the light-weight stabilizer and embroider the files one by one.

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 through and around the embroidery, and sashing and borders in a freemotion style with matching threads.

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.

Enjoy!
