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

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.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Thank you for the sweet comments - this was a ways outside my comfort zone and I do appreciate it.
