Fall Thunderstorm Wall Quilt
This small wall quilt features a Fall landscape during a thunderstorm. We used the designs from the Abstract Cloud and Thunderstorm Set and Art Nouveau Tree Set.

The finished size of the quilt is about 22 1/2" x 23".

Finished wall quilt with Fall trees, clouds and lightning embroidery


You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon. For the clouds, we used the same colors as offered in the color card, for the trees, we changed the greens to Fall colors,
  • 1 fat quarter for the central part (we chose a gray batik),
  • scraps of yellow fabric for the first border,
  • about 1/2 yard of charcoal or dark gray for the second border,
  • 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 the fabric for the central part, cut a piece measuring 15 1/2" x 15 1/2",

Out of yellow fabric for the first border, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/4" x 15 1/2", and
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/4" x 17".
Out of dark grey fabric for the second border, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 17" and
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 24" ?

Embroidery:
Mark the position of the embroidery on the central part. If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs can be 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.

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.
