Winter Scene Wall Hanging

By:

The Winter Scene Wall Hanging can hang in your house all winter long! You can hang winter scene quilts just in time for Christmas and then leave them on your walls to decorate your home for the season until the last snowfall. The evergreen trees, as well as both small and large snowflakes, are appliqued onto a background of powdery white snow and bright blue sky.

Winter Scene Wall Quilt

Project Type: Make a Project

Quilt Size: 6 inches wide x 32 inches long

Time to complete: Weekend project

Primary Technique: Pieced & Appliqued

Difficulty Level: Easy

  • Tree appliqué fabrics—5 scraps at least 6" square
  • Red fabric—1⁄4 yard or fat quarter (includes top and bottom binding)
  • Solid white fabric—1⁄4 yard or fat quarter
  • Fusible Web—3⁄4 yard
  • Backing—1⁄4 yard
  • Batting—10" x 36"
  • Accuquilt die cutting machine
  • Accuquilt Holiday Medley (55043)
  • Accuquilt 6" x 12" mat (55112)
  • Strip Cutter-2½" (55017)
  • Half Square-2" Finished Triangle (Die packaged with die cutting machine)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Cutting Directions:

Background Sky Fabric:

  • Cut 1—6-1⁄2" x 19" rectangle

Background Snow Fabric:

  • Cut 1—6-1⁄2" x 10" rectangle
  • Cut 2—2-1⁄2" strips for side bindings
  • Cut 6—2" finished half square triangles

Note: Cut one each snow appliqué fabric, solid white fabric and two fusible web 6" x 18". Following manufacturer’s directions, fuse one fusible web rectangle to the wrong side of snow appliqué fabric. Remove backing paper. Layer and fuse solid white rectangle to wrong side of appliqué snow fabric. Layer and fuse second fusible web rectangle to wrong side of solid white/snow appliqué fabric rectangle. This makes a thicker white fabric that prevents shadowing of the background fabric through the appliqué snowflakes and circles.

  • Cut 3 snowflakes and 20—1⁄2" circles from prepared fusible fabric

Red Fabric:

  • Cut 2—2-1⁄2" x 10" strips for binding
  • Cut 6—2" finished half square triangles

  4. Remove paper backings from appliqué shapes.
     
  5. Position trees and snowflakes on background rectangle. Lift off top left snowflake (this makes the snowflake underneath much easier to sew around). Fuse remaining shapes according to manufacturer’s instructions. Trim
    off shapes beyond edges of background rectangle.
     
  6. Machine appliqué edges of shapes with matching thread and a narrow zigzag or narrow satin stitch.
