Coming into Fall there’s no better time to get started on your Christmas sewing. In this tutorial I will show you how to make a super cute Quilted Wall Hanging, the best thing about this design is that it really could be used for any theme you like, fall, Christmas, Thanksgiving, or even just your favorite fabric!
I recommend using 100% quilting cotton for this project. I used the fun and festive Cozy & Magical fabric by Maureen Cracknell of Art Gallery Fabrics, purchased from my local quilting store Pennington Quilt Works. For the squares, I used a metallic quilting cotton from Joann.
This wall hanging features appliquéd hearts, you can find a detailed tutorial on how to Appliqué here.
TO MAKE MY QUILTED WALL HANGING YOU WILL NEED:
- 9 x fabric for hearts approximately 4½” x 4½”
- ⅓ yard of width of fabric for background
- ¼” yard width of fabric for borders, or 20″ width of fabric if using directional fabric
- 22″ x 22″ fabric for backing
- ¼” yard width of fabric for binding and loops to hang
- 22″ x 22″ batting
- Iron-on double sided adhesive
- 1 yard of Cord
- 3/4″ width Wooden Dowel (you will need to cut down to 20½ size)
- Co-ordinating Thread
- Rotary Cutter, Ruler & Mat
- Sewing machine
- Iron & Ironing Board/Mat
My printable heart template can be found here. I used the middle-sized heart. You could appliqué any shape you would like that fits inside the square, just remember to allow room for seams.
