Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
For 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.

--Australian Quilting Companion: Summer 2013

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!

July/August 2014 The Applique Society Newsletter
In The Studio with Angela Walters furthers Angela’s belief that quilting can add another layer of art to the quilt. Each quilt tells a story and you can enhance that story with the quilt designs you choose to use. Learn how to capture the feel of movement or give the illusion of layers and depth. Add texture with thread color or emphasize the piecing of the blocks. This book also has 10 quilt projects along with a commentary on each quilt design and how the quilting is used to tell the story of the quilt. Angela’s machine-quilting design concepts add movement, contrast, depth and more to a quilt. Planning, sketching and practice are the keys to Angela’s success and you too can learn to use these methods. Angela says that these methods work for her. They may or may not be the best for you. 'If you come across an idea you don’t love, tweak it a bit to make it your own!'
