Had to make Angel Wings

I have had to put the circle quilt away for a few days because my friend, Charlotte, turned 80 today and I made her a pair of angel wings to hang on her wall. Just a quick run through with this project then back to the circle quilt. I'm anxious to try out that Invisifil thread.

Charlotte loves angels and of course I imagined these wings as much more amazing than they were. Although quite plain, I think she will like them. First the sketch 


Pattern on tracing paper 


Fabric selection. All gold metallics.

  
Pieces sewn


Gold Madiera thread for free motion of the "feathers.


First a practice piece. Latest great lesson!!


Free motion around the scallops


A bit harder to see the gold thread


Final piece.



and this little IKEA light is an LED with a gooseneck that is fabulous for spot work.
