This (In the Hoop) growth chart is super fun to make and it is done in a 4×4 hoop. Their is minor sewing of the blocks together with binding once all stitched out but very simple. The part to be careful about is when you cut the top amd bottom of your block you need to cut with 1/2 inch above or below and your seam allowance is 1/4 inch which allows this to hang dimensionally correct. My suggestion is you use a baste stitch incase you have to adjust. Put binding on once sewn down after verifying your dimensions are correct.
This product comes with a zip containing 20 design files for your choice of growth chart with boy or girl theme topper, and with or without stipple.
Stitch out directions:
Color 1 is outline
Color 2 is tack down
Color 3 is stipple
Color 4 is bars
Color 5 is numbers
Assembly is straitforward jusy attach block to block on the sewing machine after trimming 1/2 inch above and below lines at top and bottom.
I used this to go on the back of the fruit and veggie quilt block wall hanging found on the shop.greenrooffarmsdiy site under quilt blocks in the ITH catagory.
