Assembling The Top Craft
Assembling the Top Craft
Wall hangers are easy to create. The minute size quilts once created will make a nice gift and/or decoration for your home.
Once you have your parts together, as well as have your tools you can
get started making a wall hanger. If you are new to quilting, do not
worry since the hanger we are making is one of the easier groups of
craft to create.
Do not forget to get your rotary cutters on hand, since throughout your
quilting project you will need to cut ¼-inch allowances for your seams.
Now, assuming you have your green, tan, blue, yellow, and peach print
in order we can get started making your top section of the quilt.
Briefly, I will go over the sections to help you prepare. You should
have two, 2 ½ x 19 ½ inches of upper and lower borders in the green
prints. You should have another two borders in green at the size of 2 ½
x 27 ½ inches. You should have the value of 36 for your D Square and
the size at 1 ½ x 1 ½ inches. Tan print has six parts, i.e. A-strip, B
piece, C-Strip, D-E square, and F-strip. Blue only has one part, while
yellow has three and peach has one. The yellow is C-strip, D-square,
and the last value of four is the cornerstone. C values eighteen, and
measures at 1 ½ x 1 ½ inches, while D values 12 and measures at 2 ½ x 2
½ inches; F is the peach strip, Peach, which values four and its gauge
is 1 ½ x 3 ½ inches. Peach has the G-strip, which values four and
measures at 2 ½ x 5 ½ inches. The rust prints include the value of six,
which makes up the sashing #1 vertical at measures to 1 ½ x 13 ½
inches. The second sashing creates three and measures to 1 ½ x 21 ½
inches, while the last H strip values four and measures at 1 ½ x 7 ½
You will need to cut these pieces of your quilt out. Use the guide
above to achieve a precise cut. Now you can crown your quilt. Start by
creating a row and a block. Use your block, row, and begin stitching
your D-Blue Square to attach to the A-Tan narrow pieces. (Strips)
Continue to the next color arrangement to complete the second block.
Use the D-Yellow Square in the second block and create a couple of
narrow pieces per color arrangement.
Now stitch two pieces of the tan print together to create a starting
row two and in the first block. Use Tan B, a couple of Blue Cs, a
Yellow C and overturn so that the yellow/blue has a gateway through the
color arrangement at the second block. You want to create double narrow
In the third row, create a couple more rows and arrange the colors
according in the blocks. In the fourth row, create another two rows so
that you have a nine pattern in your color arrangement, which should
extend crosswise. Alternating, add stitches to the blocks (2) and make
your center by creating #2 sashing narrow pieces equaling three. Now
press your fabric. Use an iron without ironing, rather pressing as you
You are ready for your borders. Starting with the #2 border, stitch the
narrow pieces so that it moves left to right, and to the sides at the
right of your quilt, stitching toward the middle. Add 2 ½ x 2 ½ inches,
by stitching the yellow print square. Stitch along the shorter ends
linking it to your dual borders. (Strip #1) Moving along, at the edges
along the top and bottom, stitch the narrow pieces, stitching along the
middle. You are now ready to complete your project.
