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 #7” is a small quilt that measures only 34x 35 inches. The “angel words” say “Stay close to people who feel like sunshine.” What a great piece of advice!
The center of the quilt is a panel with the words surrounded by somewhat muted flowers. The name of the panel fabric is “Sing Your Song.” I framed the panel in two different gray prints. A pieced border adds interest to the composition of the quilt, and the two bright green borders brings it all together and adds boldness to the subtle panel in the middle.
I hand quilted “Whispers From My Angels #7”. I mostly used echo stitching in the center of the quilt but followed stencil quilt patterns in the green borders. The binding is the navy fabric in the pieced border to add cohesion to 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 add dimension.
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.
