Quilted Tabletopper with Wild Rose Embroidery

This beautiful quilt, with its easy, traditional piecing, can be used either as a tabletopper or a wallhanging.

We chose the Wild Rose design. You can use any other rose for the large hoop from our Roses or large Floral collection.

The finished size of the tabletopper is about 21" x 21".
For the quilt you will need 2 fabrics: light cream or beige for the central part and blocks (about 1/2 yard), and green for the leaf blocks, border and binding (about 3/4 yard). You will also need backing and batting, each piece measuring about 23" x 23".

Cutting:

Out of cream or beige fabric, cut a rectangle measuring 6 1/2" x 8 1/2";
10 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 6 1/2";
4 strips measuring 2" x 6 1/2";
4 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2";
8 squares measuring 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" and
8 squares measuring 2" x 2".

Out of green fabric cut 16 squares measuring 2 1/2"x 2 1/2";
8 squares squares measuring 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"
12 strips measuring 1" x 6 1/2".

Also cut 3 strips 2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding.

Striped Blocks

Out of beige and green strips assemble 4 blocks: 1" x 6 1/2" green strip - 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" beige strip - 1" x 6 1/2" green strip - 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" beige strip - 1" x 6 1/2" green strip - 2" x 6 1/2" beige strip.

Add the remaining 1 1/2" x 6 1/2" beige strips to 2 of the blocks.

The Leaf Block

Place the beige and green 2 7/8" squares together face to face. You'll get eight pairs. With a lead mechanical pencil, draw a diagonal across the white square. Stitch 1/4" from the pencil line on both sides.

Cut along the line. Open the new square. Press the seam towards the green. Trim the ears. Repeat for all the pairs. You should get 16 two-color squares, measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

To make the "stem" square, take one 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" green square and 2 2" x 2" beige squares.

Position the beige square on one corner of the green square.

Draw a diagonal and stitch on the line. Trim seam allowance to 1/4", unfold and press.

Repeat for the opposite corner. Make 4 "stem" squares in this way.

Assemble the block according to the diagram below:

Assembly of the Top:

Stitch the two striped blocks that have 3 beige strips to the upper and lower edges of the central rectangle:

Stitch the other two striped blocks between the leaf blocks as shown:

Stitch the "leaf" parts to the central part.

Embroidery:

Stabilize the central part of the quilt 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.
We chose the Wild Rose design. You can use any other flower for the large hoop.

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 quilt.

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 tabletopper is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
