I started this project at the last guild retreat in November and finally got around to finishing it this week. My husband bought this kit for me for my birthday last year and I just love it. They are 12" wide and 40" long.
Since it has a very modern feel to it I didn't want to add binding so I faced it. If you have never done this here is the link I used to learn how face a quilt. Facing Tutorial.
I also want to show you two tools I used to quilt the banners. First is my SlimFlex Expanding Sewing Gauge that you can find in any sewing notion store. It is usually used for marking pleats and button holes but I like to use if for marking Cross Hatching or any evenly spaced quilting design.
The second tool is a set of longarm rulers for Cross Hatching. I bought these at Topper Quilt Tools.
They are great of any diagonal line work you have to do and they attach to your leveler bar on your longarm.
Now I have been working on a secret project and am almost ready to reveal it but not just yet. This is a very exciting project for me and think worthy of including a Giveaway along with its reveal. Hummm...I wonder what I could giveaway? I think I'll just sit here and think about it, I'm sure something will come to me. :)
