Modern Give Thanks Banner Tutorial

Itching for a quick Thanksgiving-themed project? Even in this crazy year, there's much to be thankful for.

You can make this in a morning while your turkey cooks. :) It's that easy, and that quick.

I made this banner using the following Painter's Palette Solids:

You can make this with six fat quarters. Each letter block measures approximately 4" x 5". 

Let's get started!

You'll Need:
Six Fat Quarters (Mahogany, Cumin, Wheat, Maroon, Mocha and Teal)
Approximately 7' of jute
Fusible web
Pinking shears or rotary cutter with pinking blade
Ten miniature clothespins

Click here to download the letter templates. Print one of each page. 


From the Mahogany: 
Adhere fusible web and then cut ten 3" x 4" pieces

From each of the Wheat and Teal:
Six 5" x 6" pieces

From each of the Maroon and Mocha: 
Four 5" x 6" pieces

From the Cumin:
Print out the letter template pages. Trace onto the paper side of fusible web. Adhere the fusible web to the fabric and cut out one of each letter on the traced lines. Remove paper backing from the letters. 

From the batting: 
Ten 5" x 6" pieces

Make the Banner:
Step 1: Layer a batting piece between two teal pieces. Spray baste or pin if desired; these pieces are small enough (and we'll be trimming the outside edge later), so you don't need to secure the layers unless you want to. 

Step 2: Fuse a 3" x 4" Mahogany piece centered on the teal piece. Again, you can measure, or you can simply eyeball it, as we'll be trimming later. 

Step 3: Stitch 1/4" from the outer edge of the Mahogany piece. Stitch 1/4" past the outer edge of the Mahogany piece. 

Step 4: Using a pinking shears or rotary cutter with a pinking blade, trim all sides approximately 1/4" past the outer stitching line. You can measure and mark if you like, or just eyeball it. (I told you this was easy!)

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4 to create ten quilted sandwiches; three each of Teal and Wheat and two each of Maroon and Mocha. Lay out the quilted sandwiches in the order you prefer and position the letters in place. 

Step 6: Fuse the appropriate letter to each quilted sandwich. 

Step 7: Use miniature clothespins to attach letters to the length of jute. Hang and enjoy!
