Angela Walters

Quilting Efficiently

Angela Walters didn’t grow up making quilts and had never really even seen a sewing machine until she married her husband.  Her husband’s grandma and grandpa were avid quilters, making quilts for new babies in the family, newly-weds, and quilts to raffle off at the annual family reunions.  Only those who hadn’t won a quilt could enter the drawing.  Failing to win a quilt at her first reunion, Angela decided she needed to learn how to quilt.  She bought fabric and asked Grandpa to teach her.  He set her to work on a simple nine patch, having her cut and sew all the pieces by hand.  After she finished the block, he showed her a rotary cutter and told her, “Now we get busy!”  Grandpa eventually talked Angela into buying a longarm.  From that first quilt made with Grandpa’s help, Angela has become an award winning domestic machine and longarm quilter, teacher, lecturer, and author of several books on machine quilting.

We would like to invite all quilters (and quilt lovers!) to our meetings. We meet the third Tuesday of the month, 7:00 P.M. and the third Friday of the month, 10 A.M. at Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. Guests are always welcome! 


Please remember that workshop fees help enable the guild to bring top quiltmakers to lecture and teach. If you've never attended before, give it a whirl! You'll find it can be great fun - and give you lots of ideas for new projects or ways to finish old ones.
