Little Quilted Bunting

 This is my quilted version of Sew Sweet Cottage sweet simple bunting!
 Only made one. I did it in a couple hours!
 Here is my free wheeling TUT!
 I freehand made up my slices...like watermelons!

 The red is the base so layered in batting and used simple muslin for backing.
If you prefer no quilting you can just leave out the batting .                                                                      
Scraps worked really well for batting and muslin.               

 No batting for these just muslin. You could use thin interfacing or do the Heat n Bond button hole applique.
 Back during my craft show doll making years I found using 'pinkers' close to seam worked as well as snipping to turn! Faster too!

 Press to make nice and flat.

I laid them on as I wanted. I sewed around edges first. Then went back and quilted. No not perfect but I love it!
As seen on back.
Decided wanted a pocket or flap to use for either hanging or tacked up. So trimmed the top and added the simple pocket.
I decided to add the rusty star garland later.
Like it a lot!
Wool may be what I use for next ones!

Oh yes my newest camera died so back to very old one! Please excuse the pics quality!


  1. Oh my gosh...I love it! I think I'm going to have to make one for my mantle too!

  2. It looks great and easy to make! :0)

  3. I love it Lola!!! I wish I had a mantle! Your tut was perfect, and the camera was fine!

  4. Super cute! I was thinking watermelon as soon as I looked at it. I may have some placemats in my future pile of things to do.

  5. I love that! That bunting is so cute and perfect for the early summer celebrations.

    And thanks for the pinking shears tip. That will come in handy for sure! I'll have to file that one away. Got an idea to try that for one of my next small quilt projects.

  6. Sorry the camera is giving you a headache--hope it is still under warranty!!!????
    love your bunting-and I may just have to make one!!
    Hugs, di and miss gracie
