Mayflower Quilted Wallhanging

This wallhanging is very easy to sew and quilt, even for beginners. It features the Mayflower design, and makes a great accent or an excellent gift.

The finished size of the wallhanging is about 13" x 15".

You will need 3 fabrics: white for the central part (8" x 10"), bright blue for the border and binding (about 1/4 yard), and baby blue for the border (about 1/8 yard). You will also need backing and batting, each piece measuring about 17" x 17".

Please read the cutting instructions first, it's quite possible that you'll have enough blue scrap strips for the wallhanging.

Cutting:

Out of white fabric, cut 1 rectangle measuring 8" x 10".

Out of bright blue fabric cut 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 8",
2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 15",
4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 2".
Also cut 2 strips 2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding.

Out of baby blue fabric, cut 2 strips measuring 2" x 8" ,
2 strips measuring 2" x 10",
and 4 squares measuring 2" x 2".

Assembly:

Stitch the two bright blue strips measuring 1 1/2" x 8" to the upper and lower edges of the white rectangle.

To assemble the left and right outer borders, stitch the pieces in the following order:
baby blue square (2" x 2") - bright blue strip (2" x 1 1/2") - baby blue strip (2" x 10") -
bright blue strip (2" x 1 1/2") - baby blue square (2" x 2"). Stitch two such borders.

Embroidery:

Stabilize the central part with iron-on cut-away stabilizer. Make the embroidery. Cut away the excess stabilizer.

You can also use polyester craft felt instead of the stabilizer. In this case we recommend to baste the quilt top to the felt in the ditch along the colored borders. After the embroidery is finished, rip the baste and cut away the excess felt around the embroidery.

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 three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted along the lines of the embroidery and made stippling all over the mat.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

The wallhanging is ready. Enjoy!
