Gingerbread Fun Embroidery – designs by Hatched in Africa

I wanted to make a skinny wallhanging with embroidery designs with gingerbread boys in coffee cups (Hatched in Africa designs).  I decided to make 3 designs and then make the wall hanging.  I changed the colors of the coffee cups to match the Christmas fabric (leftover scraps from a Moda Christmas panel) that I wanted to use.  It took me a while to remember how to use my embroidery machine – I forgot to add the basting box on the first 2 designs and changed the stabilizer on the last 2 designs.  By the time that I started the 3rd design, I remembered all the steps.  I cut a piece of batting to the size that I wanted and started to lay out the Christmas fabric and embroidery designs on the batting to come up with a design.  The finished size is about 11″ x 24″.  I was able to use the same quilt hanger that Mary had used for her coffee cup mini quilt.  I am going to have to practice my embroidery skills more so that I don’t forget the steps. Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
