I thought that I was done creating new blocks for my Christmas quilt for this year. I had even packed them away in their box. But I needed to make one more! This angel reminds me a bit of a cookie cutter angel due to the relative simplicity of design. Often, simple is best! If you enjoy embellishing with embroidery, I think that a hand-stitched halo could be so sweet.
I used a lace print for the angel, rather than solid white, to add a little interest. I wanted a big contrast between the angel and the background so I selected a cherry red textured solid.
This pattern is now available as a pdf download in my Etsy shop, Craftsy shop and on my website. I’m looking forward to seeing how she looks in all sorts of fabric combinations! Be sure to share your version with me so that I can gush about it!
