7" X 12" rectangle of sky-blue or light fabric for back-ground
Assorted scraps for applique
1/3 yd. Christmas or red print for outer border and binding
1/2 yd. fabric for backing
Brown permanent pen for face
Cutting:

From the assorted light fabrics, cut a total of: 8 to 10 strips, each of 1" X 21". 
From the assorted dark fabrics, cut a total of: 8 to 10 strips, each 7/8" X 21". 
1 strip, 7/8" X 16" for blocks 
From the border-stripe fabric, cut: 4 strips, each 22" X the width of the stripe, plus 1/2" for seam allowances, for inner border and divider strips. 
If using black solid for inner borders, cut: 
2 strips, each 5/8" X 42", for inner border and divider strips.

From the backing fabric, cut:

Directions:
  1. Make 4 uneven Log Cabin blocks, using the foundation on page 95. See "Foundation Piecing" on pages 10-13 for complete directions. 
  2. Using the quilt plan as a guide, arrange 2 blocks with the light logs facing inward. Join the blocks. Add a 7/8" wide strip of dark fabric to each side of the unit. Repeat with the remaining 2 blocks. Leave the foundation paper attached until you have assembled the quilt. 
  3. Sew a strip of border-stripe fabric or a 5/8" wide black strip to the top and bottom of each Log Cabin unit. 
  4. Prepare the applique pieces, using the patterns on page 74. Using the quilt plan as a guide, arrange the pieces on the background. Split the wings to widen their span slightly. Fuse and applique the pieces. See "Machine Applique" on pages 16-17 for complete directions. 

  5. Hair, Face Halo and Hands Pattern


     
  6. Use a brown permanent pen to draw the face on the angel, making the face as simple as possible. Remove the stabilizer. 
  7. Join the appliqued panel and Log Cabin units.

  8. Hands, Bodice and Yoke Patterns


     
  9. Add the side inner border strips to complete the inner border. See "Borders" on page 18. 
  10. Add the outer border. 
  11. Layer the quilt top with batting and backing: pin-baste, using safety pins. 
  12. Free-motion quilt around the angel. Stipple or outline quilt in the remaining background. Quilt-in-the-ditch around the Log Cabin blocks and borders. End with a row of quilting in the outer border, 1/2" from the inner border. See "Machine-Quilting" on page 19. 
  13. Attach a sleeve, bind the edges and label your quilt. See "Finishing" on page 21-24.
