On Angel's Wings - Show Your Wings Blog Hop

Carol said, "Show Your Wings" and let's do a blog hop.
Sooooo...


I put on my angel wings.

Welcome to the Sticks and my stop in the


Thank you, Carol, for a great idea for a blog hop!

It's no secret, I love collage quilting and this hop seemed like the perfect chance to pull out my box of  HeatnBond® Lite backed floral fabrics and make some wings.


I stitched my angel with Aurifil thread in a triple stitch on my machine
then I appliqued my wings.


To hold down all those edges, I micro stippled the wings.
Collage quilting is one of my favorite techniques and it was so perfect for wings.

This wall hanging finishes at 20" x 22"

Here is a list of all the amazing bloggers who are participating:


Be sure and leave these bloggers some super sweet comments.


See all the frost on the fence.
Great for pictures, but I'm tired of it.

Wake me up when spring arrives.

Beautiful Carla, and so colorful. I love it. I have always enjoyed seeing your designs and wished that I could do something like it, but I know mine would be just a bunch of fabrics sewn down with no picture. Thank you so much for sharing yours today.
