She gave us a trunk show of her quilts from this book, plus we got a sneak peak of the quilts that will be in her second book coming out soon. Angela is a great speaker and teacher. She spent time drawing many of the designs on a dry erase board then later quilted them out on the long arm. Two lucky ladies in our group won the samples at the end of the day. If you are looking for a very enthusiastic young speaker for your guild who is really good at what she does, you'd love Angela. This lecture and class was her free motion quilting for the modern quilt It got me all fired up to rush home and make a modern quilt just to try out some of her designs. Here are some of the examples she showed us.
|Tiles w/basic swirls inside|
|Concentric circles with pebbles|
She would do them as many times as we needed until we all got it!
Angela has a lot of patience for beginners. Her advice is "to just have fun with it".
Now just to find time to make more tops and practice my quilting designs. Oh, if only there were 48 hours each day!!
