Very Easy Scrap Christmas Quilt with Embroidery
Welcome to our festive and creative tutorial on crafting a Scrap Christmas Quilt with Embroidery! Our centerpiece is an embroidered Christmas tree, surrounded by a border lovingly pieced together from scrap Christmas-colored fabrics. This holiday season, join us in crafting a unique and heartwarming quilt that will add a touch of Yuletide cheer to your home. Let's get started!

We used the design Holly Christmas Tree, which fits the Large hoop (5" x 7").

The finished size of the quilt is about 12 1/4" x 12 1/4".

A small Christmas-themed quilt made of white, golden, red and green scraps with embroidery of a Chritmas tree in the center.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon,
  • scraps of cotton fabrics in Christmas colors - red, golden yellow, green;
  • a piece of white fabric for the central part, measuring about 10" x 10";
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer;
  • fabric for the backing;
  • batting;
  • quilter's ruler;
  • rotary cutter;
  • iron;
  • #12 universal needle;
  • quilting threads (white, and the colors of the fabrics you use);
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.
Embroidery:
Upload files for the Christmas Miracle Tree to the embroidery machine.
Select threads. Stabilize the piece of white fabric.
Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the design.
Trim the stitch-out to 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" square.
Cutting:
Cut the scraps into strips of different widths, but approximately of the same length of about 13"-14".
Sew the strips together along the long sides (seam allowance 1/4") until you get a piece of about 14"-15" long.
Strips of yellow and red fabrics sewn together.

Subcut the piece into 8 strips, each strip 1 1/2" wide.
Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Trim 2 strips to 8 1/2". Sew them to the upper and lower edges of the central piece.
The first upper and lower borders are attached to the central part of the quilt.

Trim 4 strips to 10 1/2". Sew 2 of them to the left and right edges of the central piece.

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. Start from the central part and quilt around the embroidery first, then proceed to the borders.
