I offer you 4 beautiful stained glass quilt patterns for Christmas church banners, one representing each Sunday in Advent. These Christmas banners became a cooperative project for several ladies in our church, greatly enjoying the fellowship time together as we created them for our sanctuary. The stained glass applique' technique is simpler than you would think...using 'Quick Bias", a fusible bias tape for the effect. You may order Christmas banner patterns individually or save by ordering the grouping.

|Using Quick Bias for Stained Glass Quilt Patterns
|Christmas banners created in stained glass applique are gorgeous! I use 1/4 inch wide Quick Bias when making stained glass applique on my Christmas banners. The bias strips stay adhered and are simply stitched in place when quilting the completed banner.
Tips for using Quick Bias:
- Using Heat'n'Bond Lite, applique all your individual stained glass pieces in place on a muslin fabric background.
- Visually divide your design into sections, working from the background forward. For example, the sky area, then land, then designs.
- Within each section, you will apply your Quick Bias, working from the back towards the front, layer by layer.
- Cut and finger press your bias strips in position as you go. As you work from the background up, the end of every bias strip should be covered over by another strip.
- Fuse (no steam in iron) bias strips in position after you are sure they are placed correctly.
- Simply reheat an area if you need to go back and tuck an end under.
- When completed, add your borders and prepare for quilting.
- I stitch my Quick Bias in place during the quilting process. If you are quilting on your machine at home, you can use a double needle. If you send it out to a long arm quilter, she will use just one row of stitching. Because it is fused, it will still lay flat. If you are a hand quilter, you will want to stitch both edges.
Quick Bias if a nifty notion that makes stained glass quilt patterns much easier to make than traditional methods, and is especially nice on Christmas banners.

I wanted to thank you for your pattern and inspiration and your part in creating this banner!
Everyone at my church has been very impressed with it that I wanted to share their praise with the creator of the original pattern.
Thank you so much for your help and support in using my quilting skills to praise God and to bring inspiration and comfort to my congregation,
God Bless you for your part in helping us minister to our individual churches with our banners, through your patterns and inspiration.
In Christ's love,
I am Gordon's wife, Jan.....and I've just been to a prayer time at the Community Bible church. I was so impressed by your beautiful banners that were displayed!!!!
You have a God-given talent for such wonderful creations. Just wanted you to know they touched me!!
Hi there! I just thought I would send you a little note telling you how blessed I have been by the email I received from you this week. I ordered some of your Christian banners last year and have enjoyed making them very much.
One of these days, I plan on ordering more of your resources to use while teaching my 5 children to sew and quilt. This will need to wait until finances settle quite a bit, but I just thought I would tell you that I will not forget the best place to shop for these resources when our financial situation improves. Then you won't be able to get rid of me!
Blessings in Him,
The congregation was blown away by the splendor of this banner. Thank you so much for creating such a great pattern.
