Angel Wallhanging

Debra sent me her angel wallhanging and was exceedingly patient as I moved my house and studio before I could get to her quilt. Then there was a family emergency and she had to wait a bit more.

I think she’ll love the end result, however. She found this panel and pieced a border around it.

I added details to the angel like echoes in the halo and cascading hair. I put folds in her dress but stayed off her face and the lamb.

I followed the feathers in the wings to give them some dimension.

She left the cornerstones empty and I used that space for four different motifs in a metallic thread that lends itself well to this beautiful quilt.

The setting square got feathers to frame out the cornerstones.

The outside border had a variety of fancy crosses. I used a simple meander around the crosses to make them lift up off the background.

I did a simple curl in the inner skinny red border and followed the printed motif on the ornate fabric framing the angel. I hope she likes it!
