Okay, so I have been working on these for a few weeks now, about a month actually, and am proud to present my Banners of the Month!
I've been desiging, in my "free" time, wallhangings for each month of the year. I only really have 1 finished, but I've been working on several at once.
The first one I have mostly finished, except for the last half of the binding, is July's.
HERE IT IS:
I used a variegated red/white/blue thread for the white border around the flag in the center. I freehanded flags and loops. In the blue stars behind the "JULY" I quilted stars and loops in a navy blue. I also used the longarm to finish the applique edges of "JULY".
I used a navy blue and echo quilted around the star. I used navy blue on my domestic machine, along with a decorative stitch, to applique the edges of the white star. Around the flag I did a squiggle outline.
I'm currently working on January's as well. I have most of it pieced and can't wait to unveil it!!!
Patterns will be available for sale soon, most likely on etsy. I have to finish drawing up some things for them, but have most of January's and July's patterns written. I am so excited!!
So, anyway, just wanted to introduce my lovelies to you all.
