Angel Wings

The border design that I call Angel Wings is my favorite to do on small borders.  In the picture below the pink border is 1.5" wide...


 I shared how I did it on Facebook and thought I would share it here too... (yes... there is a typo in the above pic...  Angel  not angle!!!)

The only marking I do is my spacing.  I use my 2" Designs With Line template and chalk...  (you can see the chalk in the pic above)


The next steps are drawn out...
First I stitch my swirls across my border.


Then I backtrack back adding my feathers as I go...
You can add as many feathers as you want...  I add what fits well in the space I have.



These below are even smaller!!!

  2. I really like this. Just the right amount of stitching for a small space, and it's beautiful.
