Machine Quilting Negative Space with Angela Walters on Craftsy

You all know how much I love Angela Walters, and I've shown you lots of examples of her amazing work on my quilts, right? Well, now you can take a class on machine quilting with Angela through Craftsy. The best part is that you can take the class from anywhere that you have computer access, at any time of the day or night, and on your own schedule.

In Angela's first class, Machine Quilting Negative Space, you'll learn how to break up the negative space in your quilts through a variety of motifs, including pebbles and paisleys, twirling circles and swirling scallops, boxed squares, and even more intricate designs.

Angela will show you how she does it, and teach you how you can do it on your home machine too. And to help you strengthen your muscle memory, she has you practice a lot of the designs in a sketchbook, drawing with a pen or pencil, first, before moving to your sewing machine. I'm telling you, she's a genius.  

She's even designed some gorgeous fabric panels that mimic pieced modern quilts, so you can practice your machine quilting skills without taking the time to piece an actual quilt top together first. In fact, that's what the two images above are. You can order those from her Spoonflower shop here. See, genius. ;)

Congratulations, Angela! I'm so proud of you! I seriously cannot wait to sign up for your class.
