Quilty Fun Birthday Cake Banners

We have a lot of birthdays in our family in October.
October 11, 12, 13 and 14 and 27!
This quilty fun birthday cake banner is for my son and his wife.
My daughter in law Kim suggested that I make one for both of them, with the word "celebrate".
What a great idea!
I made a red velvet cake, it has a long tradition in our family.
Do you think this banner is both feminine and masculine?

My large Bernina 750 QE is in the shop for a repair.
I broke a couple of needles making some "sew together bags", and a piece must have lodged in the cutter because it kept jamming.
I sewed a machine blanket stitch around the letters, and machine quilted, with my Baby lock machine.

Not bad, but I really miss my "monster" machine.
It's super duper heavy and fast!

Here's a peek at the back of the banner and a closeup of the machine quilting.

My granddaughter Neo is turning 5 on Wednesday!
She told me she wanted a pink and yellow and purple cake.
Hopefully this meets her requirements :)

The banners always look so much better quilted!
I love the "sprinkles" border and the bright yellow binding.
Since Neo's (nay-oh) name only has 3 letters, I was able to draw them bigger, and they really show off the fabric.

I especially love the back!

Thanks for stopping by and looking at the cakes I baked :)

  2. They turned out so cute. I love them. Neo's has the cutest girly colors and will love them. You take so much time and finding the right colors for everyone. I love them both.
