Name Banners

Welcoming new little citizens of the world is always a wonderful thing, and it would be nice to create a baby quilt for each child and grandchild of family and friends. Now, that will not always be possible, so over the last few years I have made quite a few name banners instead.
 
 
This time I dived into my collection of thrifted goodness, and gave new life to a 70ies curtain and a friend of my mother in law’s 60ies skirt.

Have fun making banners; there is no piecing involved so you can use any fabric that you have laying around, and you can add any kind of text. Make a few for upcoming birthday parties; names, sports, hobbies, anything goes. Make a few for Christmas, they would make wonderful presents, and with the machine stitched binding, they don’t take much time.
