Marigold Quilt and Embroidery Project

Posted by Janet Sansom
General Requirements
Embroidery: 6 yards (5 metres) of black quilters muslin 40 inches (110cm) wide (this may be overestimated, however you may wish to test your stitching and it shall depend on how you cut your fabric as to how much is used)
1 1/2 yards (120cm) red tone on tone fabric 40inches (110cm) wide
2 1/4 yards (200cm) green tone on tone fabric 40inches (110cm) wide (I used the length of the fabric to prevent and joins, however this will leave left over fabric.  If you wish to use the width of the fabric you will only require 1 1/4 yards (120cm))
4 ¾ yards (420cm) of backing fabric 40 inches (110cm) wide
2 ¼ yards (190cm) of batting
Note: It is recommended fabrics be 100 percent cotton, pre-washed and well ironed. It is recommended you spray starch the back of fabric to be embroidered, including sashings.
