In August 2011 I asked if anyone had made the Angelica quilt by Cheryl Phillips at Phillips Fiber Art. No one had.
I think I have had the pattern and the fabric since August 2011. I don't like to do appliqué and this pattern looked like the appliqué was a big part of making the project so pretty.
This week I spent a whole morning choosing the fabrics for the appliqué (nothing like obsessing about something)....then I spent the remainder of the day creating the appliqué. She came out pretty good, but I still need more practice.
The pattern is for a 10 degree wedge ruler. A template for the wedge is included with the pattern. The directions are clear. I spent an equal amount of time cutting fabric and sewing the wedges together as I did making the appliqué!
I'm looking forward to making another one, only the angel will have dark hair.
Thanks for looking.
