Finally I have returned to my I Believe in Angels series. I like to keep my angels close so I have made many angel quilts over the years. So far, I have 8 of these angels on my design wall, each with her own personality.
My love of travel inspired I Believe in Travel Angels. I can always count on my travel angel to see me home safely.
I Believe in Travel Angels is created using fused appliqué sewn with a machine blanket stitch. Her dress and the border is travel fabric which inspired the theme for the quilt.
I made her hair on my Janome sewing machine using a decorative stitch and variegated thread. After adding the borders, the quilt measures 37x39 inches, a good size for a wallhanging.
My friend Maxine Moore did the machine quilting.
After adding binding, a hanging sleeve for easy display and a label to document the quilt, I embellished I Believe in Travel Angels with yo-yo’s, buttons and an angel charm.
I signed the quilt on the front and added the charm near my signature that says “angels watching over me”.
This quilt is one-of-a-kind.
