Church Banner – Part 2

On Thursday I posted about the first church banner that I made to help the aesthetics of a church that we once belonged to. You can check out that POST HERE. These first banners had a dark, wintry feel to them.

Today I want to share the second set of banners that I made….this time with a Spring feel to them.

I have always loved bright scraps paired with navy blue setting pieces so that was my inspiration for these banners.

The “windows” were pieced on muslin and the strip border was pieced across a piece of adding machine tape.

Here are the finished products…..

To give the banner more body, I backed it with a medium weight upholstery fabric and there was no batting or quilting.

When they were no longer needed, they were returned to me and currently sit folded on my closet shelf. But now I REALLY want to do something with them and am thinking about cutting the blocks and strip border out and using those in another project….but WHICH project!!

The blocks measure 6 inches finished, so I could easily cut out a 5.5 inch square and the strip border is 2.25 inches wide so I could cut it down to 2.0. Now I just need to ruminate on this idea for a while and see what pops up.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!
