This is my version of the Angel Quilt. This was the first Whole cloth style quilt I have done. I used a 60" wide satin for the top and a flannel for the back a thin 80/20 batt with a poly on top of that. I marked my design with a blue wash-out marker then used the circle thingy to make the centres of the feathered squares, also used Linda's cross thatch rulers in the middle area. I love both of these tools. I am making this quilt for my oldest daughter she is expecting her first child in the fall. she loves to take photos so I am sure she will have fun with the quilt in the future. Thank-you for looking and have a great day.
