Welcome Guests All Winter with a Charming Banner
It’s Great for the Holidays, Too!
Hang this charming quilted banner near the door to welcome visitors all winter long. The cute snowman is the perfect “greeter” and will make everyone smile who sees it.
The banner is a relatively quick project and an easy one to complete. Piece the background and border, then applique the rest.
Felted wool is specified for the appliqued shapes. If you have it on hand and enjoy hand applique you’ll love the texture the wool imparts.
However, the banner can easily be made using fusible appliqued quilt scraps. Just delete the seam allowances (if there are any) as you’re cutting out the shapes. A piece of fleece or wool will work nicely for the scarf.
The finished banner is 12″ x 23″.
You’ll find the “Winter Welcome Wall Hanging” pattern in Quilter’s World Winter 2017.
