Introducing Whispers From My Angels #5

Updated: Jan 14


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 #5 word detail

Whispers From My Angels #5 is a mini quilt that measures only 18 x 18 inches. The “angel words” say “Your time as a caterpillar has expired. Your wings are ready.” What a great nudge for those who are afraid to take that next step on our journey.


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 cotton plant print and a fuschia with metallic swirls. I ended the quilt with a pink, purple and teal African print that adds boldness to the subtle panel.

I hand quilted Whispers From My Angels #5. I mostly used echo stitching in the center of the quilt but followed the pattern in the border print for my quilting lines. The binding is a pink and teal floral print that may have once been upholstery fabric. I found only this very small piece in my studio and it was perfect.


Whispers From My Angels #5 signature and angel charm detail

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. Small white crystals add realism to the raindrops.

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.
