Newest Blocks for my Angel Quilt!

First, for those who didn't see it, the angel pattern that I base this on was Emily's quilt, by Jan Patek.  You can find the pattern in her Angel book. I have added my own touches and will be using some of the blocks and some from her other designs. I am just making blocks, then putting them together with some filler blocks, so we won't know how it will look, till I am done;)

As far as my first block goes, I did use a Chlorox bleach pen on it. I went near the hearts and rubbed it in with a paper towel. It did work, the stain was gone, but once I rinsed it out, it came back, lol. This time is was lighter, so I might leave it and stitch around the hearts.

The next block I used was from Emily's quilt, I wanted another large block and this one was fun to do since I used wool, which makes it easier and faster to sew.


This block is from the quilt on the back of the Angels book. It is a larger quilt with all types of designs on it, but this one was a saying, I just had to add to my sister's quilt. The sunflower, I took from a small drawing on another book of Jan's.


My last block today, I made from a pattern in the book, Say it with Flowers. I also used this book for the sunflower shown above and the next block I am working on, which is a large sunflower. I think I need some green scroll leaves beneath the heart. Once I finish the sunflower tonight, I will add sashing, then decide where and what types of blocks I can add to finish the size I want.
