I made this quilted banner back in September and just realized I needed to post it!
This is created 100% from scraps and donation fabrics including the batting and backing! I designed it on CorelDraw on the computer. This is the first quilt I have 'birthed' rather than sandwiched and bound and also the first on which I have included a hanging sleeve.
I designed this specifically for the end of our fireplace. The banner is hung with a ribbon attached to the ends of the wooden slat that runs through the sleeve.
In the picture below you can see some of the free-motion stitching by which I quilted it. The swirls are meant to represent blowing winds.
For scale, each of the leaves is a 10" x 10" block.
