Angela Walters is one of today’s most in-demand modern machine quilters, but did you know that she learned to quilt from her husband’s grandfather? Grandpa Ford took her through every step of making her own nine-patch quilt and there was no denying that Angela was bit by the quilting bug. Like many modern quilters, Angela started out as a traditionalist, but as her career as a machine quilter grew, so did her love of modern quilts in all their forms. In this informal lecture, Angela will share the story of how she turned a new hobby into a thriving machine quilting business. Be prepared to examine her beautiful work up close and personal–she has a trunk full of quilts that she just can’t wait to share.
