TAOJ listed an angel wing art quilt as her first choice in the geezer swap. I looked around at different patterns that were out there and I really wasn't loving much of what I saw. I thought I would give applique wings on a simple patchwork base a try (she did request blue and grey - wasn't just my love of blue driving the background colors). I left the edges raw, hoping the rag edges would create a feathery feel.  6 washings later, I think it was finally getting to what I envisioned. the size is about 2' x 2.5'.

Very lovely! A sweet gift all around. I think your idea of incorporating raw edges to get a fluffy, "feathery" feel makes total sense. Cheesy

I love the feathering effect!  Well done.  

You cannot give me too much work; to accumulate work has almost become a passion with me: my study is so full of it now, that there is hardly an inch of room for any more. I shall have to throw out a wing soon. (J.K.Jerome)

Oooh, recognized this in the thumbnail. And may I say that this has turned out just as gorgeous as I thought it would? Told Averia so whenever I got a peek during the construction process. Eh. You know what I mean. I love the fluffy feathery edges, and the quilting lines seem to add some quiet movement.
