Unruly Letters for My Unruly Niece!


I've pieced the letters for my next Christmas name banner. This one is for my niece, Ellie. Ellie is a bit of a pink princess - but more warrior princess than Disney princess :-)- and she loooooooves bugs, so this pink spider fabric is just perfect for her. I might even hand quilt this one, cos I've been itching to have a go at some Baptist fans but too scared to try on a big quilt. So, I'm thinking pearl cotton (what else?!) but should I go for pink cotton, white, or a different colour entirely? Hmmmm....decisions, decisions. What on Earth did I spend my time thinking about before I started quilting?!


  1. Your niece will love this banner..mmmespecially the bug fabric,how fun!

  2. Love the pink spider fabrics. What about using black?


  3. Hi, I'm here from the Liberated Quilters group. This is a great banner - I've been thinking about making a name banner too, I should probably get on that. You have a lovely blog. I really like your village and your shabby valentine!

  4. Loving the spider fabric, Ellie is a lucky girl :)

  5. Cute! I love how there's black on the white and the pink. Those fabrics really work together.


I love comments! Please don't be shy :-)
