Horse Silhouette Wall Quilt
This is a small wall quilt for horse lovers. It features designs from the Horse Silhouette Set.

The finished size of the quilt is about 26" x 27".

Wall quilt with horse silhouette embroidery.


The contruction of the quilt is very simple. The funnest part is picking out the right themed fabrics to use.
You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon - black, dark brown, or any other very dark color will work,
  • 1 fat quarter for the central part (we chose sandy-beige with a faint grass pattern),
  • about 1/2 yard each of 2 themed patterned fabrics - we picked a charcoal fabric featuring a rope lasso pattern and tawny brown fabric featuring stars and horseshoes,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • quilter's ruler, rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • #12-14 quilting needle,
  • fabric pencils, markers or ink (optional).
Cutting:
Out of the fabric for the central part, cut a piece measuring 18 1/2" x 17 1/2".

Out of charcoal fabric, cut
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 17 1/2",
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 20 1/2",
  • 1 strip measuring 4 1/2" x 19 1/2" and
  • 1 strip measuring 4 1/2" x 27 1/2" ?
Out of tawny fabric, cut
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 17 1/2",
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 20 1/2",
  • 1 strip measuring 3 1/2" x 19 1/2" and
  • 1 strip measuring 3 1/2" x 27 1/2"?
Use the remaining tawny fabric for the binding.

Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the tawny 1 1/2" x 17 1/2" to the left edge of the central part and the charcoal strip of the same size to the right edge of the central part.

Embroidery:
Mark the position of the embroidery on the central part. If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs will be helpful. If not, you can cut out rectangles of the size of the designs and use them to position the designs.

Stabilize the chosen areas. Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the designs 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 layers together.

We quilted in a free-motion style all over the quilt.
