From the PublisherFor many quilters, the quilting is secondary to the piecing of the quilt top. In her second book, Walters makes a strong argument for the importance of quilting to make beautiful patchwork shine. The focus of this book is quilting negative space—the large expanses of solid fabric often used in modern quilting. With a selection of projects as well as samples from her other work, Walters demonstrates a variety of techniques for quilting negative space to enhance the design of quilt tops. VERDICT Like her first book, the style is friendly and pleasant, and Walters’s gentle guidance will help increase quilters’ confidence in their machine-quilting abilities.

I am always looks for new or more information about machine quilting…new techniques, more designs…anything to improve my quilting. A while back I had reviewed a book Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters. I loved the book and have even tried a few of the designs. Then I saw that C&T Publishing had another book written by Angela so I had to check “In the Studio with Angela Walters” out too. My dream would be able to machine quilt like she does. Her work is just amazing. I can see myself trying a few or her machine quilting techniques. I have to say, I LOVE the machine quilting. It’s just gorgeous!
