Perfect your applique skills while creating beautiful, seasonal wall-hangings. Learn to use more than just the standard blanket stitch and satin stitch to add a special touch. Margie will also give you tips on quilting your wall-hangings to bring out more detail. Choose to join the summer wall hanging class, the fall class, or enjoy both classes.
The pattern recommends batiks. Blenders, also, will work up nicely.
Fabric to purchase
-PALE sky colors—blue, teal, orange, yellow—4 fat quarters (each must have 13” X 16.5”)
NOTE: Pale yellow will make the sun for every season, except Summer.
-Green hills 5-6 fat quarters
NOTE: Try to get varying shades and stay on the lighter side—mine are a little too dark.
-Black/White Stripe ¼ yd
NOTE: My samples are not finished with the black and white stripe (as pictured) because I plan to put them together as one wall hanging at a later date.
-Reds for barns—Regular and Dark—fat quarter each
-Snowy White hills and one fence—three shades of white—3 fat quarters
-Black barn roofs and binding—1 yd—also used for the letters to spell the seasons.
NOTE: My samples have the seasons embroidered in place to save from cutting and sewing each
Fabrics for which you may have scraps
-Yellow for Summer sun
-Pink for pigs and flowers
Gray (light and dark) for base of one barn
Teal for Winter pine trees
-Tan and Brown fences and paths
-Batting and Backer Fabric
Four pieces one for each banner—15” X 32”
I recommend Floriani® Appli-Kay Wonder sold by Stitch ‘N Time.
Light table—not required, but a worthwhile investment for anyone hooked on applique
NOTE: Perfectly good tracing can be done using tape and a glass door or window.
Ink pen (or pencil)—not the kind that erases with heat or water
Threads to match the fabrics being appliqued
New needle in the machine (70 or 80)
Four different light-colored markers—one for each season
Snacks and drinks as needed to keep you going
I sewed on beads for eyes of the birds and pigs. I glued on Winter snowflakes from my embellishment stash.
