Welcome Home!

We are so happy to announce the debut of the Welcome Home Banners pattern! We have been eagerly awaiting the chance to show it off and here it is!

Sew fun! Make the base banner once (yes, you read that right) and then make interchangeable designs to use all year round! I love the porch leaners that I see around town - so cute! I have often thought, I have a little spot near the front door that would look so cute with a Welcome banner.

The base banner is done in a traditional method, with quilt batting; you can choose to quilt it or not.

Bosal has pre-cut foam circles to go with this design, for the interchangeable shapes. This means all of the circles will be the same size - no hand cutting! There are 12-packs available (monthly),


and there are 4-packs available (if you just want to show the seasons):


You can choose to use a wood look fabric, as in the Home banner below:

Applique using the foam circles adds a puffy dimension. While appliqueing, I did not have to adjust my sewing machine at all - I just recommend using a topstitch needle with the foam - for pretty stitches! As you can see below, a blanket stitch or a zig-zag stitch works, whatever you prefer.

The designs are held in place with a sew-on Velcro.

There are 12 interchangeable designs in the pattern- just waiting for your scraps!

Welcome your guests home with our banners! These simple banners can be put up with a quilt hanger or 3M Command Strips! Keep them up all year long and just change them up with your designs. The Home banner finishes at 8” x 25”, the Welcome banner at 9” x 41”.


Right now at Stina's Quilt and Sewing Supplies, they are offering Starter Kits with laser cut Welcome and Home Text - check out the details here:
