Angela Walters Video: Machine Quilting Timelapse


Ever wanted to watch a quilt being quilted from start to finish?  Here's a time lapse version of Angela using her longarm to take a quilt from start to finish.  Wouldn't it be great if we could all finish a quilt in three minutes?



Star Members can watch more with Angela in Episode 1306: No-Pin Curves and Quilting "Modern" in which she demonstrates how she gives traditional quilting designs a modern twist, and determines strategies for quilting the negative spaces.

On the Set with  Episode 1507: Cheryl L. See & Pat Sloan
Alex and Ricky are joined on the set by award-winning "hexpert," Cheryl See. Cheryl launches English paper piecing into the 21st century, and you'll be amazed by her quilts: each incorporates a little "secret" or two that draws you in for a closer look.
Taped at the Drury Plaza Hotel in San Antonio, TX, Cheryl shares loads of tips for making precise and perfect hexies and diamonds, and then shows a number of clever and versatile 3-D projects for trying her techniques without committing to a huge project.
