I float through life knowing that my personal better angels are looking after me. They make me show up and be my best self. That is what inspired this series of 8 quilts I named “Whispers From My Angels.”
Whispers From My Angels #4 is a mini quilt that measures only 20 x 20 inches. The “angel words” say “Finding My True Colors.” It’s a good reminder to be authentic.
The center of the quilt is a panel with the words surrounded by somewhat muted flowers and butterflies. The name of the panel fabric is “Sing Your Song.” I framed the panel in a gray print and ended the quilt with a royal blue border with read and white dots and a final red metallic African print that adds boldness to the subtle panel.
I hand quilted “Whispers From My Angels #4”. I used a diagonal cross hatch pattern in the center of the quilt and a continuous loop pattern in the border. The binding is a Kaffe Fassett red print.
I embellished the quilt with the word angel in black sequins and added an angel charm near my signature. The charm is engraved with the words “Angels watching over me”. I brought the subtle flowers to life by adding buttons, and I made the butterflies light up the sky by adding crystals to their wings.
Of course there is angel fabric on the back to carry out the theme of the quilt. There is a hanging sleeve for easy display and a label that documents the quilt.
I signed it on the front. This quilt is one of a kind.
