Angel story quilt progress


Today I pulled out An Angel Story quilt. The book was published in 2004, and I think I started to sew it at that time.  Then it has been “forgotten” for ten years.  It is time to get it finished now because in May I have joined a class with Annie Downs.  It had been fun to have this quilt finished by that time and bring it to show her.  Just had to add the outher border.


Then I took it with me to the cantina at work to baste it.  So lucky that I can use the big tables there. Makes it more easy to baste.


When I basted it I recognized a lot of OLD fabrics.  Guess that I would have chosen different fabrics if I was going to sew it now.  But I really love the look of this one too. 


Back home I started to machine quilt it.  Hope to do it little by little, in between some hand stitching.  Because machine quilting is a little bit rough on my neck.


Rusken is helping me with this quilt. He is trying to steal the Pinmoors I have used to baste this quilt. 

Saying for today:

I love the look of this quilt made with stronger colours, so different to the original.

a real beauty, love your colour choice, think I will have to look out for the book, not sure the quilt will be made but maybe a couple of blocks I would like to have a go at, must try my hand at applique, mind you paper piecing lessons are top of the list but they could slip down and applique might take over

just been on a search and appears the book is very hard to come by, only found one copy and it was $65 so will keep my eyes open and hope I can find it elsewhere

Rusken always amuses me. Cats just have to be into everything. I guess you were spurred on to finish this quilt now that Hanne has completed hers and I am sure Anni will love both of them. I sure do. Hope you don't overdo the machine quilting and hurt your neck. Take care.

I like seeing how you basted it. I like that you taped it to the table. Great idea!

What a sweet quilt! And you will feel so great to have it finished after so many years.
