To help me develop my free motion quilting skills, I signed up for a class with Angela Walters of Quilting in my Therapy. Ready to learn more about her process and her quilting experience, I was not expecting to also learn about being a professional in the quilting industry and meeting a talented and humble quilter. Spending the day with Angela changed my perspective about being a professional in a creative field.
Angela has continued to impress me with her array of books (including her latest book with Christa Watson, which is soooo good, called The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting), her new brick and mortar store called Quilting is my Therapy in Liberty, Missouri to her seemingly mass produced quilts for artists like Tula Pink, Julie Herman and more. When she was announced as the keynote speaker for QuiltCon 2017, I couldn’t be more excited. We talk about her keynote address along with her experiences teaching, how she developed her business and why she feels finishing is more important than perfection.
As a part of the Mighty Lucky Quilting Club, I am excited about her design challenge to integrate words into our quilting. I can’t wait to see what people will make!
There is a bit of an echo in the first five minutes of the podcast but we figured it out and it sounds better soon after that.
