WIP Wednesday

I volunteered to quilt the two Angel Quilts for my night guild. The quilts are for the local hospital Hospice Outreach Team. When a loved one passes while in the hospital Hospice, the Outreach Team asked for quilts from the local guilds/ sewing clubs to cover the deceased. The quilts are to remain at the hospital Hospice and hand made pillowcases will be given to the survivors with the personal effects of the loved one.

A guild member undertook this effort and supplied the Angel Block pattern for anyone who wished to make blocks then donate them. A team gathered last Sunday to sew the blocks into tops. This week, I practiced on Valerie some more.

This first quilt I did Tuesday using the Popcorn pantograph. I stood on the chair and DD took the picture. The finished size is about 46 x 86.

This second quilt I did today also with the popcorn pantograph. This is on DS's bed as my photographer is in school right now. The finished size is about 45 x 85.


I really liked this red haired Angel as each Angel seemed to have her own personality.



I thought the quilting would show better on an Angel with a darker background, that's why I included her.
Now I will pass the quilts off to two different guild members to sew the bindings on!

Your angel quilts are wonderful, the concept, the blocks, and the quilting!

What a nice thing to do! How wonderful to know that you were a part of comforting someone at a very difficult time. That's a great pattern, too! Are the pillow cases done in a similar fashion?
