Melissa writes about her quilt, "I prefer not to show faces on angels so you can focus on their power instead of their personality. In viewing this angel from behind, I wanted to know what it was gazing upon. It became the universe. In the vastness of the universe, the focus narrowed to a pinpoint. This faceless angel became the one that patiently and lovingly stands sentry, guarding, guiding, and watching over me."
