Banner Up!

We're running a little behind on our 4th of July decorating but I really wanted to make a red, white and blue version of my Holiday Stars Garland Tutorial.  Unfortunately, I had a little mishap this weekend involving an overstuffed bin of fabric which resulted in two sprained fingers.  Obviously a hint it's time to slash some stash!  Luckily my slave labor adorable children are already trained on making these stars and they pitched in to help make our new holiday banner.

Audrey did the sewing...

and Dex stuffed the stars. 

I love the fireworks fabric, it's so festive and has just a hint of sparkle!  We're heading back to Maine for the real thing so I'll have a few days to hopefully recover. 

Happy 4th of July!


  1. Oh no, a quilting injury! Hopefully you can make the July sew-in/meeting to help bust some of that stash. Of course, there's really no such thing as a stash that's too big. ;)
