Book Review on Publisher’s Weekly

Publisher’s Weekly just posted a thoughtful review of “Free-motion Quilting with Angela Walters”

publisher's weekly review

Here is what they had to say:

Walters thinks machine quilting is more fun than cutting or piecing. She amply proves that quilting is “another layer of art” through careful instructions in the art of free-motion quilting. Her book is not rule filled: she insists throughout that she’s describing what works for her, and she encourages quilters to experiment to find what works for them. The book falls into three sections. “Getting Started” includes definitions and supply lists; “The Designs” presents 28 patterns of swirls and circles, squares, lines and vines, and arcs and points. The final section on working with designs of modern quilts considers designs of squares, zigzags, strips, and off-kilter (“wonky”) pieces. Instructions direct quilters step-by-step in text and graphic illustrations, backed by closeup photographs of the designs quilted by Walters. In the final section of tips (followed by a helpful glossary), Walters exhorts quilters to answer a question to reveal the most important thing about the quilt at hand: the fabric? the piecing? the image of a child hugging the coverlet?

“Free-motion Quilting with Angela Walters” will be released in June, you can pre-order a copy on Amazon or here.

Happy Quilting!

About quiltingismytherapy

Since learning how to quilt from her husband’s grandparents 10 years ago, I have been in love with the art of quilting. I purchased my first quilting machine 9 years ago and have been quilting professionally, teaching and giving trunk shows ever since. I love traditional quilting but has found my niche quilting modern quilts and helping other learn how to adapt their quilting designs for modern quilts. Quiliting will always be my therapy!

  1. I did look through your book on Amazon & ordered it. I am eager to get it. I am sure it will be very helpful as I learn more and more how to quilt my own quilts.
