What does that spell? “LOVE” of course! Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, so I wanted to get my quilted pennant banner ready. I’m not sure the photo does it justice though. This banner has been hanging in my front hall for a little while and it always draws a compliment.
So why am I showing a quilting project on my Stampin’ Up! blog? Good question… because the pieces for this fabric project are cut entirely with my Big Shot diecut machine and my Stampin’ Up! Big Shot dies.
The fabric matches the Scallop Square Die bag that I posted recently. (check it out) I had some material left over, so I pulled out my Stampin’ Up! Pennant Die (113483) and started cutting.
Each triangle Pennant piece is actually 3 layers–the front, the cotton batting in the middle and the matching back fabric. After cutting, I stitched all 3 layers together along the scalloped edges. Then I added the Scallop Circle (113468) in the brown fabric, stitched around that in a circle, and then layered the Serif Essentials (113464) letter on top. I actually used Stampin’ Up!’s Tombow Multiadhesive for the letter–turns out to be a great fabric glue!
Each of the pennant pieces was laid out on a long strip of the Chocolate Chip Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (111849) and layered with little scallops cut using the Pennant Die (gotta love multi-purpose dies!). Then I topstitched the small scallops and pennants in place along the ribbon to finish the banner.
This banner was so simple–I highly recommend giving it a try! If you don’t sew at all (I had to drag my machine out of its 5-year storage spot), you can still make these. Just plan to glue your layers together instead of sewing.
I’m already working on my next banner–the kids have been asking for banners with their names!
