Easter Door Banner

It dawned on me this weekend that I did not have an Easter Door Banner. I have several with flowers that would be ok this time of year, but I really want to make a door banner for every holiday. I combined some patterns I own and came up with this simple one I made completely from scraps. I finished it last night and hung it up immediately to please my OCD hubby who gets very bothered by having holiday decorations up after the holiday (he prefers taking the Xmas tree down on December 26th and has even suggested taking it down on Xmas afternoon!)
 
I have spring break coming up the week after next, but I have offered to go care for my niece and nephew while their dad starts chemotherapy and radiation. They live in Nevada, but his treatment will be in Salt Lake City and my sister would like the kids there that week since they are off from school. My teenager and I will be in charge of entertaining the kids. I probably won't get in as much quilting time as usual, but it will help the situation tremendously and I should be able to check out some quilt shops in Salt Lake City. Any advice on quilt shops or activities for an 8 and 9 year old in Salt Lake City? Thanks!

  1. Such a cute banner and neat that it was all made from scraps. One of my favorite quilt shops near SLC is Quilts Etc in Sandy. Daine's Cotton Shop is also nice. There is an aquarium that just moved from Sandy to Draper and opens March 25. Slightly further away is Thanksgiving Point. There is also The Clark Planetarium in SLC. Further north there is an Air Force museum in Ogden and a dinosaur museum. There are tours in Temple Square. I feel like I am rambling, so let me know if you have any questions.

  7. So cute with that big blue egg. When I used to dye Easter eggs, the blue ones were my favorite color.

  11. Cute banner. I have double doors and have been trying to come up with a quilt alternative to wreaths. It can be hard to find two of the same design in the right scale! Thanks for sharing
