    Final Product: What You Will Create


    Step 1:
    Read through the instructions thoroughly before beginning and assemble all the materials needed to complete the project. Print out a paper template of the design. You’ll have to do a little measuring for this project. I have had this frame for a few years, so it may be discontinued, but there are others like it by the same manufacturer. The project will hang in the middle part of this frame which measures approximately 10” high by 11” wide. Adjust the measurements for the frame you will be using I also did the embroidery first, and then measured and decided on the dimensions for the fabrics. This design will fit in a 5” x7” hoop.

    Step 2:

    Step 4:
    After the design has finished stitching it will be time to start measuring and cutting the other fabrics.

    Step 5:
    Remove the fabric from the hoop but do not trim the stabilizer. Measure the design. For this project, the design was marked ¾” outside the outer edges (this includes ¼” seam allowances.

    Step 6:
    Take the embroidered piece to the machine and stitch just inside the marked lines.

    Step 8:
    Now cut the strips for the sides. These were cut wider than needed, and then cut down later. These strips were cut 3” wide, and slightly longer than the left and right edges. Place the strips, right sides together with the embroidery, and stitch the strips on using a ¼” seam allowance.

    Step 9:
    Press the seams toward the strips. Use a ruler and rotary cutter to cut the strips even with the top and bottom of the embroidery.

    Step 10:
    Next the top and bottom strips were cut 3” wide and longer than the width of the embroidered piece with the side strips. Place the strips, right side down at the top and bottom and sew them on using a ¼” seams. Press the seams toward the strips and then cut off the ends making them even with the sides.

    Step 11:
    Check the measurements to determine how much needs to be removed from all sides. The final measurement of the finished piece should be about ¼” smaller all the way around that the frame measurement—or just a bit more.

    Step 12:
    Trim off the amount needed. Cut the piece of batting larger than needed.

    Step 14:
    Cut a piece of backing fabric the same size as the batting and lay it wrong side up. Spray one side of the batting with KK2000 and place it over the back fabric. Now spray the top of the batting and center the top over the batting. Baste around all the edges to secure all three layers together.

    Step 15:
    Lay the piece under the frame again and make sure the dimensions are correct—if not, adjust and trim again if necessary. Now choose the binding fabric.

    Step 16:
    Cut bias strips 2” wide and sew them together to sew around the piece. Use your favorite binding method.

    Step 17:
    Use the remaining strips of bias to make hangers for the back. Measure and pin them in place equidistance from the sides. Slide them onto the wire hangers to make sure they won’t show above the little quilt binding.

    Step 18:
    Sew the binding on and at the same time stitch in the ditch around the center embroidery.
