Angel Art Quilt

Grandmother Who Holds The Sunset
Here is my angel quilt top. I placed her sitting on top of the flowers she loves-roses. The background fabric is from the Lewis and Clark "Journey" collection. I found the word "quilting" in the words and it is actually at the top right hand corner. The angel quilt is called "Grandmother Who Holds The Sunset" because her favorite time of day is sunset. This is the picture I took of the sun setting on the Colonial Parkway near Jamestown. She is a teacher and genealogist so I chose the pen and ink to represent these two parts of who she is. The ink bottle holds angelina ink and the pen has a drop of angelina falling off on to the fabric. I was given a pic of my angel which was taken the day we were assigned the guild member. From this pic I took her head and ran it through on fabric to place on the body I created for her. The final decision I made was to put a partial butterfly wing made of black thread and angelina on her. I really love how this worked out. I hope my angel likes what I did for her.

Very nice. I'm sure she'll love it. I tried to enlarge it, but no success.
