You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon - all colors to your taste,
  • a strip measuring 8 1/2" x 35 1/2" of light-colored fabric for the central part (we chose ivory batik,
  • 1 yard of green-colored fabric with floral pattern (we used green batik with dandelions) for the borders 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.
Cutting:
Out of the fabric for the central part, cut a strip measuring 8 1/2" x 35 1/2".
Out of green fabric, cut:
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 8 1/2", and
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 43 1/2".
Use the remaining green fabric for the binding.

Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the green 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" strips to the short edges 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 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.
