The Sew Along continues today with the addition of borders to our little project. This will use up more of our scraps, and give you an idea for a larger project as well.
I have no end to Autumn inspired fabric scraps, LOL!! It is just a matter of choosing a bunch, then cutting 2-1/2-inch squares.
You’ll need 40 squares, 2-1/2-inches square. Sew them in line sets as follows –
Two sets of 3 squares
Four sets of 5 squares
Two sets of 7 squares
Then arrange the square sets around your embroidered center, with the sets of three on the top and bottom, the sets of 5 surrounding those, and the sets of seven on the left and right.
Sew the 3-square sets to the top and bottom of the center embroidery.
Sew the 5-square units to the left and right sides.
Add the 5-square sets to the top and bottom.
Then add the 7-square sets to the left and right sides.
This completes our wall hanging top. It did occur to me that if you wanted a larger quilt, you could embroider several motifs and make the 12-1/2-inch top into blocks. It would use up a lot of scraps! Next week, we’ll quilt and finish it.

OOOOH I’d like to try Tuscany Supreme 100% Unbleached Cotton. It sounds delightful!
Love when a batting manufacturer like Hobbs offers a good variety. I think I would choose a premium 80/20 as I often decide to hand quilt. This choice allows for both hand and machine quilting.
For my first handquilted project I would love to have a special batting: Hobbs Tuscany Silk Batting!
The Tuscany batting would be nice to try! I think I’ve tried the other Hobbs battings
I would love to try the Tuscany wool or silk batting.
The collection of Pure solids looks yummy.

I hear such wonderful things about Hobbs battings. I’d love to try Heirloom cotton/poly, 100% cotton, or their 100% wool batting. From the Tuscany collection I’d like to try any of the 100% cotton or the 100% wool batting.

Love this! I don’t have an embroidery machine but I do cross stitch and this is a great use of a couple things I’ve embroidered and didn’t know how to finish!
