Finding the Right Banner Materials for Your Fabric Banner
When you're preparing to invest in a banner, time spent on investing in good banner materials and supplies will be well spent in the long run.  Religious banners will not go out of style, so you want them to be made from durable, resilient, yet creative fabrics.   

Landscape Fabrics:
  • Quilt shops carry nice varietys of landscape fabrics...bricks, wood, trees, water, clouds, stones, etc. to use in designs for your patterns for church banners.
Background Fabrics:
  • Background fabrics are more subtle and you do not want them competing with your design.  I generally do not use a plain cotton, but select batiks and blenders, or an overall polished cotton to give even the background some interest. Background fabric work in beautifully with stained glass quilting patterns.
Visual Interest Fabrics:
  • There are a variety of interesting fabrics that will create visual interest.  Feel free to mix cottons, shiny satins, textured Lame (gold or silver), definitive fur, and stretch fabrics on your fabric banners.  Several require special handling...fur needs to be hand sewn in place, crinkle satin needs to be stabilized with a fusible interfacing, apply Lame with a low temperature iron, and satins need to be pressed without steam as they will water spot.
A huge part of the creative process is taking time to collect the items that will really contribute to the overall message of your fabric banner.
