Angels' Song
Topic: Quilting

When at the BIG fabric store I fell in love with a particular print and actually bought it in three colors. Then I selected some other prints that echoed the colors that they had in common. It wash't until I got them home that I realized that the script printed in the background was scripture! Cool.

I wanted the butterfly fabric to be a true feature on a quilt and knew I had the right pattern when the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial for the Friendship Star Sashing came out. It was perfect - using huge blocks with all of the design work taking place in the sashing.

I arranged the blocks to create an off-center concentric diamond shape and used a medium blue for the stars and a dull red for the outer border.


Here you can see how the snowballed ends of the sashing combine with a matching cornerstone block to create the friendship stars.


The scriptures (Revelation 4: 8, 11, 5:13) are repeated over and over in different colors and sizes across the fabric.


Here you can see a little bit of the quilting. I quilted the scriptures in script across the surface. "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come. You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being. To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever."


This will go as a gift for a departing pastor from our church staff.
