This is approximately my 20th Quilty Fun Birthday Cake banner.
My grand daughter Taylor will be turning 2 in a couple of weeks.
I bought some Farmer's Daughter fabric by Lella Boutique, to make Taylor's older sister a dress for her birthday.
You can see it here.
I also wrote a tutorial for my cake banners, you can see it here.
Here's my cake, I love the soft colors :)
You can see the simple machine blanket stitch that I use.
The banner really comes to life when you add a border :)
Now it's machine quilting time!
I was thankful that I had enough green gingham (which I didn't use in Reagan's dress) for the binding.
I love pebble quilting!
I used a jigsaw or stiple pattern around the border.
I stitched in the ditch around the whole cake, platter and bow and didn't touch the letters.
Finished, and ready to gift!
The back of the banner screams "birthday party!!!"
I've never made a quilty fun birthday cake banner from a line of fabric before!
I really like the colors, they match Taylor's coloring.
