Handmade Holiday Banners and Tutorial!!!

This morning I am thrilled to be sharing my newest finish as well as a new  AccuQuilt Tutorial  as well!!!   I love decorating for the Holiday's and when AccuQuilt shared their brand new Pennant Die I knew that it would make the cutest banners.  And these banners all use Strip Piecing and Applique to really take them up a notch from your basic banners.  And here they are!!!

And since tomorrow is the 4th of July, let's share this super cute Bomb Pop Banner first!!  Isn't it just so fun.  By using the Curved Pennant die upside down, a little strip piecing, and adding a little ribbon, you totally get the look of a bomb Popsicle and how great is that for the 4th!!!    And then of course, a little applique Happy 4th in navy finishes it off just perfect :)

And before you know it, summer will be done and we will move into fall.   And sad to say, Halloween really isn't my favorite, but I do love the Candy Corns!!!   And by using the Traingle  Pennant die upside down, a little strip piecing, and adding a Halloween Applique, you totally get the look of a Halloween Candy Corns!!!   How cute is that :)   And I later thought, you could totally turn Traingle  Pennant die around for the look of Pie for Thanksgiving and make another fall inspired banner ;)  

And finally, you all know I love playing with a rainbow of colors in my quilts, and I totally wanted to make a rainbow banner as well.   So I came up with this Spring Banner using the Angled  Pennant die, a little strip piecing, and then the fun Spring and Flower appliques.   And I just love the spring time rainbow, makes me want to breeze right through all the seasons to get back to Spring so I can hang this up ;)


And those are the three Holiday Banners I came up with, but of course, the sky is the limit!!  I loved using Strip Piecing to really make each banner pop.   And they are so fun and fast to make.  I made all 3 in a day!!!   Don't you just love being able to add a little Handmade to your Holiday decor :)

So if you want to make your own Handmade Holiday Banners just pop on over for the free step by step tutorial!!!    (And just FYI, a bunch of Accuquilt Dies are on Sale right now, including the Letter ones!!   And you can use code FIREWORK for free shipping all this week ;)   When you are done making your own Holidy Banners, I would love to see them!!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  and #AccuQuilt or add it to my flickr group here ;)  I can't wait to see your Holiday Banners!!!

Thanks for joining me today and sharing this new tutorial with me ;)   I had so much fun creating these Banners!!!  And the sky really is the limit of what banners you could create using the new Pennant Die .  I am thinking I might have to try that Pie one next :)

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day and for my friends in the USA a Happy 4th tomorrow!!!
