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 #6 is a small quilt that measures only 30x 30 inches. The “angel words” say “No matter what, choose to bloom.” What a great reminder that life is about choices.
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 two different gray prints. A mostly red pieced border adds interest to the composition of the quilt, and a red Kaffe Fassett fabric in the final border brings it all together and adds boldness to the subtle panel in the middle.
I hand quilted Whispers From My Angels #6. I mostly used echo stitching in the center of the quilt but followed a stencil quilt pattern in the red borders. The binding is a green and teal stripe fabric. I think the green striped border helps to maintain the happiness of the quilt.
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 crystals to catch the light.
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.
