On Friday I went on the Shop Hop, which included visiting 6 quilt stores. At each store I received a stamp for my passport and picked up 2 pieces of fabric. On the left are the fabrics I collected at the stores. At the 6th store I was given the green fabric for the border/binding, and the pattern to make a Spring banner using these fabrics. Over the weekend, I sewed it together and just finishing sewing on the binding tonight while watching the Amazing Race. The colours are a little off on the right, but you can see what the project is.
The letters were made with fusible applique, which I haven't done a lot of. And wouldn't you know it, the very first letter I made got gunk on my iron! That is why I don't use it very often - I don't like getting my iron gunked up! I'm sure if I used this technique more often, I wouldn't have this problem and would learn how to avoid this.
However...the banner is finished and measures 15" x 23". Now I have to clean my iron!
A big thank you to store owners - Cathy, Heather S., Leslie, Cheryl, Brenda, Linda, and Heather Z. for the fabric and fun!
