    Angel ornament

    Our Guild has received its official notification from the local Museum about the Christmas tree display for this year. The Tuesday group chose a Hallmark movie with angels to fit the theme of 'Favorite Christmas Movie'. We have lots of decorations, but could use some new Angel ones. I designed and made this paper-pieced one to get us started. I love that EQ numbers the pieces for you.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    How beautiful! I would love to learn how to make paper piecing patterns! I don't have any software though, I have only tried to do it by hand hehe. Great job!

    carol doak has a lesson on how to paper piece and convert patterns to paper piece and designing your own. No software needed http://www.caroldoak.com/free-quilt-patterns.php

    Great angel! I love how her gown seems to almost be 3-D and float out from the background.

    QuiltingNan thanks for the link to Carol Doak's converting to PP. I have been trying to figure out how to do a jar block and this will help me.

    Is there such a thing as too much fabric?

    Adorable angel.
