An Angel quilt

Recently, I volunteered to make an Angel quilt for one of the participants in the DS Quilts Doll quilt swap and as it has arrived at its destination, I can share some photos.
The mini was based on a tutorial from Dorrie, who is one of the other members of the DS mini quilt group. I quilted it in a cross hatch design, then bound it in a multi-coloured stripe.
 I also made a pouch to send using the Scrappy trip along tutorial to make the outside panel as I wanted to see how these blocks came together.
And lined it with a bright orange print from Aunt Edna.
I was worried about sending this from Australia but luckily this package did not take too long to arrive at its destination!

  6. Hi Kirsten! What a beautiful and fun mini quilt you made! It looks so sparkling with the white background and the binding is lovely finishing! Great idea to try the 'scrappy trip' on a pouch. x Teje

  7. Lovely quilt! I love the idea of using a practice block like that.
