Glass Angel by Jane Tenorio-Coscarelli (Lake Elsinore, California); quilted by Pamela Dransfeldt
Glass Angel was shown in a special exhibit, “The Cities of Angels” (Los Angeles, California and Puebla, Mexico), curated by Jane Coscarelli, at the 2014 Road to California quilt show. The quilt was adapted from a stained glass photo. Jane says: “While on our trip to Puebla and Mexico City I was overwhelmed by all the beautiful stained glass in the churches. And I felt you could see the angels watching over you."
This quilt was made with cut-away whole cloth and hand applique techniques. Jane Tenorio-Coscarelli designs unique, creative quilt patterns at her site, Quarter Inch Publishing; including many wonderful folklorico designs.
