Finished quilted tablerunner with Fall trees embroidery

You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon in autumn colors,
  • about 3/4 yard of royal blue fabric,
  • 1 fat quarter of yellow fabric for the blocks,
  • about 1/2 yard of orange fabric for the blocks and 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,
  • Thangles, finished 1.5" (optional).
Out of the blue fabric, cut
  • a piece measuring 19 1/2" x 32 1/2",
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", and
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 19 1/2".
For the windmill blocks, out of yellow and orangle fabrics each, cut 20 squares measuring 2 3/8" x 2 3/8". If you use Thangles, please follow their instructions.

Use the remaining orange fabric for the binding.
Sewing the Windwill Blocks:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
To sew half-triangle squares, position one of each of the yellow and orange 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" squares, face to face. You'll get 20 pairs.
Half Triange Block
With a pencil, draw a diagonal across the top square. Stitch 1/4" from the pencil line on both sides.
Half Triange Block
Cut along the line. Open the new squares. Press the seam towards the darker color. Trim the "ears". Repeat for all the pairs. You should get 40 two-color squares, measuring 2" x 2".
Half Triange Block
Out of each 4 half-triangle squares sew 10 blocks:

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 with the stabilizer 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.
