Summer Tiles Wall Hanging

Welcome to the Summer Tiles Wall Hanging tutorial! In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to create a beautiful wall hanging composed of three small square quilts seamlessly connected to form a captivating display. Learn how to sew, embroider, and quilt each piece with ease, bringing a touch of warmth and charm to any space. Let's dive in and explore the creative world of quilting and embroidery together.

This charming wall hanging makes a great gift. It doesn't require a lot of fabric, and is easy to put together over the weekend.

We used one-color designs from the Flower Block Set for the commercial hoop (8" x 12"). The designs for the mega hoop (6" x 10") also work great for the project.

You will need
  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon);
  • medium-weight cut-away stabilizer;
  • solid light-colored fabric for embroidery (we used off-white);
  • patterned fabric for the binding and the ribbon that connects the blocks. For a 3-tile quilt, you'll need a piece measuring about 6" wide and 40-42" long (width of modern cotton fabrics);
  • backing and batting;
  • quilting threads;
  • fabric markers, pencils or inks.
Embroidery:
Stabilize the light-colored fabric with medium-weight cut-away stabilizer and embroider any 3 files from the Flower Block Set.
Using either fabric markers, pencils or inks, color the stitch-outs.

Quilting:
Place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your stitch-out over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start echo-quilting around the embroidery. Continue to quilt 2"-2 1/2" margins around the embroidery in a freemotion style.

Press with steam.

Repeat for all 3 tiles. Trim them leaving the 1 1/2" - 2" margins around the embroidery.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

Making the Background Ribbon:
Cut the patterned fabric into 6" x 40"-42" strip.
Finish the raw edges of the strip - fold and press all edges twice 1/4" back. Topstitch in place.
Fold the upper edge of the piece 2" - 3" back. Press. Stitch along the edge to make a hanging sleeve.
Sew the tiles to the background ribbon.

Alternatively, instead of sewing the tiles directly to the ribbon, you can attach snaps or pieces of velcro tape to the ribbon and to the backs of the tiles. Then you can change the tiles or move them around to your taste.
