Embroidery pattern by Gail Pan Designs.
After the embroidery is complete, assemble the quilt sandwich and prepare it for quilting.
Quilt together using stipple quilting. The closer together the stitches the stiffer the end result.
Attach the border.
The hanging tabs are made of 2 rectangles measuring 8.5 in x 4.5 in each sewn in a tube.
The buttons are covered in a matching fabric.
Stitch tabs to finished wall hanging.
