The Hoopsisters Lemon Tree is one of three projects in the Summer design collection which includes a summer time bowl, vase cover, and the lemon tree. This wall hanging finishes at 12 x 42 inches. This is a single block size project. The hoop must be able to accommodate 6 x 7 inches (153 x 179 mm). Unlike most Hoopsister projects the blocks are not executed to include the back at the time of embroidery. Instead Battilizer is hooped, the block completed, the blocks sewn together, backing added to back, stitch in the ditch, and bind to finish. The embroidery designs include two other projects.
