    Angel Quilt?

    Howdy y'all :c)

    Boy do I have my hands full! I have a quilt to finish by my niece's birthday on 10/23 (did I mention I haven't started it yet?), a rag quilt to complete for my nephew for Christmas, and both of my sisters have told me they want a quilt for their birthdays! My oldest sister's birthday is in March, and she LOVES angels. She collects them, and I think it would be safe to say that she has over 100 of them. So I thought I'd like to make her an angel quilt. Unfortunately, all of the patterns I've been able to find online are for table runners or wall hangings. I haven't been able to find anything for making actual bed quilts. Can anyone out there help me please? :::::using the ol' puppy dog eyes treatment:::::

    How about re-working one of the wall hanging or runner patterns?

    I have this one on my to do list. You could always add additional blocks to make it the size you need. Good luck and please keep us up dated. Hope this helps you out!

    Chose the block design you like best and don't worry how it's shown.

    Here's a paper pieced one. It's in Christmas colors, but you could make it to fit her decor

    Love the Angel Babies, did a swap with them a couple years ago. Everybody decorated them with all kinds of goodies. I got one that even had a green mohawk, lol. I used the blocks as part of my Relay for Life quilt last year. FatCat has an Angel Block of the Month going on.

    beggars can't be choosers ;-) I have more fun making quilts for people who don't ask for them.

    The Angel Babies is cute! My DFIL has asked me to make a quilt for a DF's DGD (confused yet?) who is special needs. He wanted it to have different fabrics for tactile since she is also blind. This might just do the trick! I could make the dresses out of different types of fabric!

    Thanks!!!!

    if you visit the web site- AnotherbyAnita- she has some great angels to choose from- stained glass patterns- i've done a number of Anita's designs- they are easy to do, and spectacular! then it's easy enough to add blocks/borders to enlarge to quilt size.

    Sindy Rodenmeyer has a block of the month going on now and they are all angels. Fat Cat Patterns is one of my favorite sites. The best part is they are FREE.

    I have made two angel quilts from a Buggy Barn Book. The whole quilt takes about one or two days to make.

    This should be the pattern.

    You can make any number of angels and add or leave off the border. In one version, I used an angel border print and only the words Love. I used the colors of the border for the angels. In another one, I embroidered halos on the angels with one barely hanging on.

    Their technique is so easy.

    Loved the Angel Babies quilt!

    Have you considered making a more traditional pattern using fabric with angels printed on them? I bought some "Angel" fabric a few years ago thinking I would make something for my MIL since she also collects angels. Haven't come up with just the right project yet.

    If you scroll down on this link you'll find a quilt pattern for an angel block that can be made with any size HST's and an appliqued circle. Cute but simple. http://wildrosepastures.blogspot.com...1_archive.html

    this is the pattern I used for my grandson's angel quilt. I cut each angel from a different white on white, then dedicated the angels to people in his family. Tiny exception, my head fits down into the "V" of the angel wings.
    I used a black/blue/white print background. Made a big pillow to match.
