Modern Wall Quilt with One-Color Poppy Embroidery
Welcome to our tutorial on creating a modern wall quilt featuring one-color poppies embroidery. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of piecing together your quilt, quilting it, embroidering it and adding a final touch with permanent fabric markers. With clear instructions and simple techniques, you'll soon have a charming quilt to adorn your space. Let's get started on this creative journey!

We used the design of One-Color Bouquet of Poppies for the Mega Hoop. The Large Hoop designs will work as well.
The finished size of the quilt is about 11" x 13 1/2".

You will need :
  • black embroidery thread, either polyester or rayon,
  • a piece of white fabric for the central part;
  • small amount of cotton fabrics with modern patterns - for the first border we used black with narrow white stripes and for the second border - red fabric with irregular black dots;
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer;
  • fabric for the backing and binding;
  • batting;
  • quilter's ruler;
  • rotary cutter;
  • iron;
  • #12 universal needle;
  • quilting threads (the colors of the fabrics you use);
  • #12-#14 quilting needle;
  • red fabric paint, you can use either markers, or pencils, or inks.
Upload the file of the One-Color Bouquet of Poppies to the embroidery machine.
Stabilize the piece of white fabric.
Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the design.
Trim the stitch-out leaving the following margins: 1" on the left, 1 1/4" on the botto, 2 1/2" on the right and 3 1/2" on the top. The final measurements of the central part should be 9" x 11 1/2".
Stitch-out trimmed to needed size.
Out of black and white fabric, cut
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 11 1/2" and
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 10".
Out of red-and-black fabric, cut
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 12 1/2" and
  • 1 strip measuring 1 1/2" x 11".
Note: seam allowance is 1/4" unless otherwise recommended, press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the black-and-white 1 1/2" x 11 1/2" strip to the left edge of the central part.
Sew the black-and-white 1 1/2" x 10" strip to the lower edge of the central part.
The first border, black-and white, attached to the central part.

Sew the red-and-black 1 1/2" x 12 1/2" strip to the left edge of the working piece.
Sew the black-and-white 1 1/2" x 11" strip to the lower edge of the working piece.
The red-and-black borders are attached to the working 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 working piece. Start from the central part, and echo-quilt the emboidery first.

Press with heavy steam. Square the piece - all angles should be 90 degrees and opposite sides of the same length.
Finish the raw edges with the black binding.
Prepare your coloring media. Read the manufacturer's instructions and try the media on a scrap of fabric first. Color the quilt.
The quilt is prepared to be colored.
We colored only the petals of the poppies to give the quilt a modern look. Feel free to add some green as well. But in that case, we recommend green binding.
