I Wish You a Merry Quilt Along – Block 6

DSCN1242

Block #6 of the I Wish You a Merry QAL is designed by Sandra Healy of Sandra Healy Designs. As you can see I have not completed my embroidery and outlining around the angel and stars. This is another project that looked very good in my head but when I attached the applique to the fabric…not so good. The gold lame’ fabric I picked for the wings and sleeve is entirely too transparent. The good thing is I think I can pick another fabric and attach it directly over the lame’.

The angel’s dress is a pretty white with silver sparkles and the blue background is an ombre fabric with sparkles, neither shows up that good in the picture.

Other than my fabric choices it is a very cute block.

Thank you Sandra.

I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy, your Angel block is lovely! I love the blue patterned fabrics you chose. I always realize that a fabric shows through after I iron it down too. A QAL participant who did the same felt it gave her angel an “ethereal” quality and I think the same is true with yours 😇
