I settled on a design for this small banner.
I used this Accuquilt studio die to cut my stars. They also have star dies to fit the Accuquilt GO!
I originally wanted a print background, but I couldn’t find anything in my stash that I was happy with. Then I remembered I had this variegated thread.
I decided to use that to break up the white background. I used this American flag print for the backing.
I love the effect of the variegated thread!
Accuquilt has free embroidery files that you can download to finish the edges of these shapes with an embroidery machine. I decided to just fuse the shapes down and then quilt closely to hold them in place.
Love the texture!
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~ Ronald Reagan
Have a great weekend.
