Part Four completes That Old ’57 Chevrolet Art Quilt. This session adds a hanging pouch and binding while addressing the last detail of what was missing.57 Chevrolet art quilt inspired by the Dresden embroidery pattern found on the BERNINA website.

Materials for hanging the pouch and binder

• Rotary belt, cutter and ruler

• Iron and ironing mat

• Sewing machine with 1/4 inch foot

• Hera tool or other marking tool

Finishing the Art Quilt

Assembly complete…check! Applique finished…check! Quilting finished…check! Hanging pocket and binding… No! Quilters have a love-hate relationship when it comes to getting a project across the finish line. Adding a method for hanging an art quilt adds an extra step to the process. Machine sewing makes this simpler, as hand sewing is not my favorite.

Hanging sleeve

Quickly cut, iron and sew a hanging sleeve for an art quilt• Using a rotary cutter, ruler and mat, cut the hanging sleeve across the width of the quilt by four inches.

• Press 1/4 inch on the short ends of the hanging sleeve, then fold a second time and press. In addition to finishing the ends, this also shortens the sleeve so it doesn’t get caught in the binding.

• Sew close to the inside fold to finish the short ends.

• Repeat to complete both ends.

Finish the last raw edge of the hanging sleeve and attach it to the art quilt• Mark a press line 1/2 inch from one long edge of the hanging sleeve. A Hera marker creates a crease in the fabric, making precise ironing easier.

• Press the marked line 1/2 inch to fold the fabric, creating a finished edge.

• Pin the remaining unfinished edge to the wrong side of the top edge of the quilt. Center hang sleeve leaving approximately 1/2 inch at each end. Pin in place.

• Sew the raw edges with a barely 1/4 inch seam at the top of the quilt.

• Cut and attach the binding using your preferred method. I use single fold binding cut to 1 – 5/8 wide for art quilts that I sew on the front and then fold/press to the back.

• Moving the needle slightly to the left when final stitching results in having to connect VERY close to the folded edge of the binding. The goal is to achieve a clean edge and a very precise seam line.

• Pin the pressed edge of the hanging sleeve to the back of the quilt. Leave about 1/2 inch of clearance in the sleeve to accommodate the thickness of the hanger bar. Hand-stitch the folded edge to the back of the quilt.

• Here is the finished That Old 57 Chevrolet art quilt. It should be finished but I feel like something is missing. It’s time to think and experiment more.

Additional Details

The car feels like it’s floating…cars don’t float…especially these old, heavy relics.

The finished art quilt did not appear finished, so the hearing of additional details began.

Hearing details for grounding the car with clippings from a stash of black crochet cotton. The positioning and heaviness of the bits always seems wrong. Bobbin work or sleeping threads would work best, but the seams could stretch the vertical quilt lines, causing distortion of the finished piece. I’m still thinking.

The addition of hand-stitched horizontal floor lines in three locations helps keep the car anchored to the ground.

Two strands of black Masterpiece thread hand-stitched in three sections secured the car to the ground. Not only is the flutter gone, but the offset lines allow for forward movement. The snappy feel is perfect for a ’57 Chevy.

Here is the finished That Old '57 art quilt, ready to go on a cruise.

Ready to run to the next project.
