My sister Laurie is a very talented fiber artist with Parkinson's Illness. She makes me cowls, hats, etc.
When I saw the "You Might Have an Angel Near" quilt I bought the kit.
It took me forever to piece all the border blocks but during that time I kept gathering embellishments. Last week she went home with my sister who is thrilled since I made her a mini-Laurie. My sister dresses with lots of bling, hair every color of the rainbow.
Please enlarge the picture so you can see details. I heavily quilted the hair, the wings have metallic thread. My favorite touch is the hair that after I quilted I added foil to create lots of color. I also foiled the halo. There are also lots of hot fix crystals. Rings, necklace on the skirt in the flower.
I love the end result!
From the Editor: Linda, I tried enlarging the photo but I can't enlarge enough to see the details clearly. If you'd like to send photos of the detail (I'd LOVE to see it!) use my personal email address at:

Thank you! Fabulous quilt! Wonderful story!
