Amazing! So clever and yet simple to make. Thank you so much Lexie :-)
This is a very well done video and fun to watch - highly recommended for newbies and experienced sewers alike. In addition to learning exactly how to make a banner, I picked up some tips to help me in my other projects.

I'm Lexie and I'm a quilt artist.

When I grew up, giving a needle to a four-year-old was not a crime. You just had to teach them how to use it safely: back then every decent girl had to know how to sew.  So I learned sewing before I was six. 

And… I enjoyed cutting things up with sharp scissors. As a result, my dolls eventually got large wardrobes, gaping holes on my Mom’s blouses suggested there used to be pretty flower prints in their place, and my Dad ran out of nooks and corners where he could hide our sewing machine. 

By fifteen I got a professional taylor’s certificate. Towards high school graduation my entire wardrobe was literally mine (prom dress included, of course).No wonder I went on to study fashion design. And was completely disillusioned. For I found no freedom for creativity in that. 

Quilts never used to be on my radar as something remarkable, and at one point I had a red-faced friend shout at me for being so disrespectful. So on a dare I made her a quilt.
And that was it.

I found a way for my heart to speak.

Later I learned about different schools and techniques, and I like using them all with only one purpose: to tell a story. Each quilt does that. I share my love for textile art on my website and you're welcome to visit it.
