  • Final Product: What You Will Create

    Preface:
    This quilt is made in a differently than the other quilts we have made. In order to avoid cutting the latticework gingham type fabric into squares so that their lines would not be interrupted on the back of the quilt, the quilt blocks are made in the hoop without the back fabric, and the back fabric is applied to the quilt as one solid piece. Using this method, the sashing strips will only be applied to the front of the quilt which will quilt the back during their application.


    Step 1:
    Cut 12 8” squares each of the Battilizer® and the yellow batik fabric. Cut no show stabilizer in the size required to fit your hoop. Tautly hoop the stabilizer. Take the hoop and one square of Battilizer® and fabric to your machine.

    Step 2:
    Run CS 1 in a neutral or water soluble thread as a placement line for your fabrics.

    Step 3:
    Spray adhesive on the stabilizer square and position over the placement lines so that the Battilizer® exceeds the placement line by at least ½” on all sides.

    Step 4:
    Spray adhesive on the back of the batik square and align with the Battilizer® square in the hoop. Run CS 2 in water soluble thread to tack down the batting and the fabric.

    Step 5:
    With a lavender thread that matches your lavender fabrics run CS 3 to embroider the pansy design.

    Step 6:
    Lay the ¼” mark of a see through ruler along the water soluble tack down stitches and trim all sides of the block to ¼”. Repeat Steps 2 through 5 for the other 11 pansy blocks.

    Step 7:
    At your sewing machine set up a wide and not too dense zigzag stitch that will be used to join your blocks together. This machine was set for a 4.5 mm wide stitch with the stitches 4 mm apart.

    Step 8:
    You will join your blocks together in rows of 3 blocks each and then join the rows to put together the center of the wall hanging. Align two blocks together butting up the sides without gaps or overlaps. Stitch together with the zigzag stitch.

    Step 9:
    Join a third block to the row. Make three more rows of 3 blocks each.

    Step 10:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Trim the top and bottom of each row if necessary to make sure they are straight.


    Step 11:
    Join the rows together in the same manner with the zigzag stitch.

    Step 12:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    Align marks at the bottom of the ruler and the edge of the ruler along the sides of the center panel and trim any variances in the alignment of the blocks to square up the center panel.


    Step 13:
    To make the fabric borders and backing work in one yard of fabric cut two 3” strips across the width of the fabric and then cut then down to 3” x 25”. Then open the fabric and cut two 3” x 25” strips vertically from the fabric. Cut from your lavender solid fabric across the width of the fabric 6 1 ¼” strips for sashing and 3 2 ¼” strips for binding. Cut 4 3” x 25” strips of batting.

    Step 14:
    Spray adhesive on one side of the 25” Battilizer strip. Smooth the lattice work gingham over the Battilizer® aligning the long sides. Do this for all 4 border strips.

    Step 15:
    Butt the border strips to the sides of the center panel and join to the center panel with a zigzag stitch as you used to join the blocks together. The border strip should be placed so that about ½” extends beyond the top and bottom of the center panel.

    Step 16:
    Trim the side strips even with the top and bottom of the center panel.

    Step 17:

    Join the top and bottom border strips and trim as in Steps 15 and 16.


    Step 18:
    Iron the 1 ¼” lavender sashing strips with Magic sizing. Fold the edges of the strips to meet in the middle lengthwise and press.

    Step 19:
    Lay out the remainder of your lattice work fabric right side down on your work surface. Spray the back of the wall hanging with spray adhesive and center it on the fabric leaving a couple of inches of excess backing fabric all around the wall hanging.

    Step 20:
    We are going to apply the sashing first to cover the horizontal seams of the center panel. Pin a strip of sashing to the center horizontal seam align just to the yellow center panel. Use a ruler from the top edge of the center panel to the stripping to make sure it is straight across the seam. Stitch down both sides of the sashing strip with invisible thread in both the top and bobbin of your machine. I used an E-stitch but you can use a straight stitch you prefer. To make best use of the sashing strips a separate strip is used for each of the horizontal applications using up about 18”s of those strips which left enough of each of those strips to stitch the two horizontal sashing strips.

    Step 21:
    Stitch the sashing across the other two horizontal seams within the center panel and your wall hanging now look like this.

    Step 22:
    Stitch the sashing to the two inner vertical seams in the same manner and your wall hanging now look like this.

    Step 23:
    23. This step is optional, but if you want to quilt your borders now is the time to do so. In the sample channel quilting was stitched all the way around the border, pivoting around the corners at 3/8th” intervals.

    Step 24:
    If you skipped Step 23 baste the borders to the quilt back by stitching around the outside of the borders within a ¼” seam allowance. Trim the excess quilt back from the wall hanging. Apply the sashing strips all the way across the top and bottom seams of the wall hanging.

    Step 25:
    Apply the last two strips of sashing to two outside vertical seams. Even though the seams do not go through the borders at the top and bottom borders stitch the sashing across those borders and all the way down the length of the wall hanging. This will make the wall hanging look like it has set in corners. Trim the excess sashing around the quilt.

    Step 26:
    Join the 3 2 1/4” strips and bind the quilt as desired.


    Step 27:
    The back of your quilt will look like this with the stitching of the sashing on front having quilted the back.


    Step 28:
    (Click Image to Enlarge)
    See our article on “Attach a Hanging Sleeve to a Mini Quilt” to attach the wall hanging to a quilt hanger. As the quilt hanger used had a thin rod this hanging sleeve was cut 3.5” wide. If you are using a larger rod you may want to cut yours wider.


    Step 29:
    Congratulations your Pansy Passion Wall Hanging is complete!
