As many of you know, I have deemed myself the official "angel quilt maker" for the latest doll swap. I actually got permission for this job, because I really have a passion for the smaller quilts and besides, like my husband says, "What else do I have to do all day anyway?" Well, in the process of thinking about what to make for some of these, I thought...why not an angel quilt for an angel quilt???? (How's that for a sentence??) So I got to work!!
First the drawing:
Then I got out my trusty "steam a seam" (and I really wish I had stock in that company, I use so much of the stuff) and started working: Note the perfect background fabric with the tiny dots... what a perfect find that was.
Then, before I started putting the whole thing together, I sewed her face. After all, what's an angel without a sweet face? I also hand stitched her halo because I didn't think I could do a good job with the sewing machine being that it was so skinny.
