“Angelic” progress……….

Was made on this client’s quilt. It’s approx. 48” in diameter and has many bias edges in those stitchings!!!! IMG_6589

The beginnings of this may be found here.

 

 

 

The wings are the current areas being “feathered”…………..IMG_6866IMG_6867IMG_6868IMG_6869IMG_6870    The pinkish wing fabric has a sort of pearlized metallic touch to it so I went with a Sulky “Sliver” ‘thread’. A bit touchy to stitch with……it’s not a round profile strand but, rather, a flat ribbon-like configuration that reflects light much better. This one will pick out the pink and glisten!!! Lovely!!!!!! IMG_6871     The larger feather’s spine is now filled in with ‘pearls’/circles/pebbles(large) to balance the large plume motifs. IMG_6872IMG_6873 IMG_6874

Now, off to do more “winging” it………………….
