Autumn Wall Quilt with Fall Tree and Raven Embroidery
This small wall quilt celebrates the season of Fall. We used the designs Autumn Raven for the large hoop (5" x 7"), and Fall Gale for the commercial hoop (7" x 10").

The finished size of the wall quilt is about 24" x 21 1/2", but can easily be adjusted according to your needs.

Finished wall quilt with fall tree and raven embroidery


You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon; either follow our color cards or change the colors to your taste,
  • 1 fat quarter for the central part (we chose very light gray; pale blue, cream or pale yellow will also work),
  • strips of different lengths and widths of fall-themed and fall-colored fabrics,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • fabric for the backing and binding,
  • batting,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • chalk pencil, or any removable fabric pencil/marker,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.
Cutting and Assembly:
Note: We shall cut the fabrics as we go.
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
On a piece of fabric for the central part, mark the position of the embroidery. If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs will be very helpful. If you do not, you can cut out rectangles of the same size as the designs and arrange them on the fabric to determine the position of the embroidery.
Print-outs of the embroidery designs on a background fabric

Organizet the strips of fabrics around the print-outs to determine the size and shape of the central part. Just lay them out, no sewing is needed at this stage.

We got the shape of an irregular hexagon, but you may end up with another shape.
Approximate layout of the borders of the quilt

With the help of a chalk pencil/fabric marker and ruler, trace the inner opening. Remove all strips around the central part.
Cut it out with the 1/4" seam allowance.

Take the first strip and sew it to one of the sides of the central part. Cut the protruding ends.

Sew the second strip to the next side. Cut away the protruding ends.

Go on adding strips to all sides until you form a rectangle or square around the central part. Please note that the top should be a little bit larger than the desired size, because after embroidery, quilting and squaring it will become smaller.

Embroidery:
Again use the print-outs to confirm the position of the embroidery. We also decided that the raven will fly away from the tree, not towards it as in the first composition.

Stabilize the chosen area. 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.
