Quilting- Tulip Wall Hanging by Ruthanne T


Materials needed     0636D tulips
Bosskut Gazelle

27x8 piece of pink fabric
27x8 batting
31x10 piece of green fabric
2 1 ½ inch strips of green fabric
Fusible web
Dowel and ribbon for hanging optional
Scraps of pink, green and yellow fabric for the tulips
Walking foot
Optional: machine embroidery thread in green yellow and pink for blanket stitch around applique

Preparing the wall hanging:

27x8 piece of pink fabric
27x8 batting
31x10 piece of green fabric
1- place green wrong side up
2-place batting and pink right side up 2 inches from the top and 2 inches from the sides. Pin in place.
Using your walking foot and guide at 1 inch and begin quilting the pink fabric and batting to the green fabric only quilting on the pink fabric.
now sew your 2- 1 ½ inch strips of green fabric wrong sides together ¼ inch seam allowance.

Fold your strip so that the seam is centered and press. Set aside you will place them on the quilt after the tulips are fused on.

Cutting your applique pieces

Get your pieces of fabric together and fuse some fusible web to the backs.
Cut the tulips out the size you want for your wall hanging

I have a video on cutting this fabric on YouTube under username jeffsflame

Lay out your tulips on your fabric the way you would like and fuse down
Using the green strips as markers to separate the pieces. Pin the green strips across the pink and sew in place close to the edge
fold the long sides of the green in half and then in half again and sew to the pink on the edge. When you finish the sides fold the corners in and miter them or just square them, and fold the top in half and in half again and sew down repeat for the bottom.
for the hanger you can attach a rod pocket or make tabs to hang I used a dowel and ribbon.

now my favorite part is to take the wall hanging over to my sewing machine and with matching thread to the fabric use a blanket stitch all around the pieces to give it a hand stitched look.
this really is optional you don’t have to do this part.

I hope you enjoyed this !
