ITAA: both wings

That went better than I hoped!

Both wings are now ready – I found a quicker way of assembling the second one and it was done in a couple of hours πŸ™‚ I’m loving the pair, which are… not chunky, but substantial. As you can see, I also got the hook done.

Today’s mail delivery also brought these really beautiful blocks from Nanette for the ‘wall of heaven’ background behind the wings. Gorgeous colours, fresh, pale and clean. Heavenly, even!

Tomorrow I need to pay a visit to the embroiderers with the banner and the text to go on it, to see what they can do for me.

And that’s the news today from Heaven’s waiting room πŸ™‚

    Aah they’ve arrived, good, tick another one off. Pleased you like them and they’ll work in the background. And you’ve certainly ‘earned your wings’…..they’ve both come together beautifully, often happens that a quicker way shows itself after you’ve fiddled through one.

    Aww thankyou. I made a pretty churn dash, but it seemed a bit structured, then I found bits and pieces from failed mountains and a postage stamp block I started, then couldn’t find the rest of, so decided on a scrappy log cabin.

    Gasp! The wings are wonderful. Don’t let any local mothers see them otherwise you will be in great demand come Christmas for nativity play costumes πŸ˜‡
    Nanette’s done a lovely job with her background blocks too.
    It’s getting there.

    This is going to be amazing! And it’s happening so fast!

  9. Nice work. That’s really lovely. Easier now to imagine it when done!

    The pair of wings is just amazing. It is stunning in real life, and I think it captures what you started on paper! Glad some more background blocks have arrived. This was a fast turn around, but it seems to be coming together beautifully. Are you OK on blocks now? I am finishing your F2 F3 blocks today so I could see what I have in the scraps/stash and send it along with yours.

    Love the humor of the learner tag.

    So glad the second half of the wings went together more quickly! That’s got to be a load off your mind. They look absolutely wonderful. πŸ™‚

    They are just beautiful, can’t wait to see this quilt made, it’s going to be a masterpiece πŸ™‚

      The more I look at the design and think about it, the more I want to ‘work into’ it, and embellish and add bits. It’s all going to come down to how much time I have at the end; just now, I’m mostly waiting for blocks to come in!

  14. I agree, you have earned your wings. Those turned out wonderfully! I just love the softness of the colors in the squares. What a wonderful quilt it will turn out to be. Soft and kind.
