Recently, a friend of mine gave me this sweet fabric. It isn’t a panel, but it has squares with angels playing in their gardens. The soft greens and yellows with the printed purple sashing is just a charming color palette.
There are three angel designs in the fabric.
Initially, I thought it would be a good time to practice some custom quilting, outlining the blocks and doing some feathers.
But, loading it up, I decided just to do a pantograph and get it done for giving away.
The pantograph is a pansy with leaves, as it went with the gardening theme in the panel.
I used a light yellow thread by Essentials, with Bottom Line in the bobbin, also in yellow.
Batting is Warm and Natural. The soft colors will be nice for a little girl.
It quilted up fast, and I was done in an afternoon.
I trimmed it so the purple sashing was relatively even.
Digging in the stash, this yellow rose fabric was perfect for the binding.
Hand stitched to the back was fast too. The backing is a tone on tone ivory, and did well with the pale yellow Bottom Line in the bobbin.
All done and ready for donation.
I am not sure where this one will go yet. But, I am sure it will be loved by someone soon.
