I've been seeing cute banners all over blogland and so has my friend Diane. She had a baby shower at her house tonight and asked me to make a banner with the baby's name on it for the shower. It's always fun when you have an excuse to make something! I considered making it out of fabric. But paper was much quicker and easier this week. So paper won out.
It was a hit and Mom said she's going to hang it in the baby's room. So the banner will have a permanent home!
For her gift I made up three of those patchwork balls. But I forgot to take a picture! You'll have to use your imagination. One matched the colors in the banner.
I haven't gotten as far as I had hoped on my sailboat quilt this week. But here are three of the 9 sailboats that I need to make:
As long as babies are being born around me, there will always be an excuse to make a quilt or some other fun project!
