Christmas Pennants

Here is a teaser picture of the progress I've made on the quilt I stayed up to cut on Thanksgiving.  I cut up my scraps from last year's retro Christmas quilt + some Kona green (Palm and Holly) that I got on a sweet clearance deal last year. I am loving it.  I'm hoping to finish it this week and I will reveal the whole thing.
While cutting the triangles for the quilt (we used the Accuquilt Go Cutter) my sister helped me cut the rest of the retro fabric remnants in to Christmas pennants.
Throw in some red bias tape and a cute, quick Christmas banner perfect for Decking the Halls.
We have a few sets left over and they are now listed in the Etsy shop.
Bad news. They are gone. So sorry. 

The good news is: I'll be back Monday to participate in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day.  
Whoops! Just kidding! Next Monday for SMS. But I still have a little giveaway Monday. :)
Also, the winners of the Stitch Craft Create magazine giveaway have been posted. 
Hope all you are enjoying some holiday cheer where you are.

I've got bunches of fabric pieces just waiting to be turned into pennants, but hadn't even thought of doing a Christmas themed one. *bangs forehead*

I actually have that fabric with the 50's model in her red and white striped swirly dress and completely forgot I had it till I saw this post! I remember spending hours trying to track it down long after it came it, it was such a lucky find. I love that fabric, thanks for the reminder!
