Stained Glass Flower Panel Wall Quilt
We made this attractive wall quilt using the designs from the Stained Glass Flower Panel Set. The multi-hued batik that we used for the background enhances the stained glass effect.

The finished size is about 21" x 43 1/2".


We used the designs for the commercial hoop (8"x 12").

You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon, the choice of colors is up to you,
  • about 1 yard of base fabric for the quilt, (we used a multi-colored batik),
  • about 1/2" yard of black of dark brown fabric for the sashing and binding,
  • fabric for the applique,
  • medium-to-heavy weight embroidery stabilizer,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • applique scissors,
  • iron,
  • quilting threads of matching colors.
Embroidery:
Embroider the designs from the Stained Glass Flower Panel Set following the instructions.

After the embroidery is done, trim each panel to 12 1/2" (wide) x 13 1/2" (high).
Cutting:
To make assembly easier, we've divided the cutting according to parts of the quilt.

For the middle row with embroidery:
Out of base fabric, cut 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 13 1/2".
Out of dark-colored (black or brown) fabric, cut 6 strips measuring 1" x 13 1/2".

For the first border, which will be attached to the upper and lower edges of the middle row:
Out of base fabric, cut
  • 8 strips measuring 2" x 2 1/2",
  • 12 squares measuring 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" and
  • 6 strips measuring 2 x 9 1/2"
Out of dark fabric, cut
  • 8 strips measuring 1" x 2 1/2",
  • 24 strips measuring 1" x 1 1/2",
  • 24 strips measuring 1" x 2 1/2" and
  • 6 strips measuring 1" x 9 1/2".
For the second border:
Out of base fabric, cut
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 4",
  • 6 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 9 1/2" and
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 5 1/2".
For convenience, keep all cut pieces marked and sorted.
Use the remaining dark fabric for the binding.
Assembly:
Note: Seam allowance is 1/4", press all seams immediately after you make them.
Middle Row:
Decide in which order you'd like to place the stitch-outs.
Sew 1" x 13 1/2" dark strips to the right and left edges of each stitch-out.
