The finished size of the quilt is about 18" x 20".

You will need :
  • embroidery threads according to our color card,
  • about 1/2 yard of neutral-colored fabric for the background,
  • scraps of colored fabrics for the first border and corner blocks in dark autumn colors (we used dark burgundy for the border, and brown and burnt orange scraps for the corner blocks),
  • fabric of matching color for the binding,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.
Cutting:
Out of fabric for the background, cut:
  • a piece measuring 12 1/2" x 141/2" for the central part,
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 12 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 14 1/2" for the second border,
  • 8 squares measuring 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" and

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