Angela Walters is a long-arm quilter, teacher, and author. Her quilting career began at the side of her husband's grandfather, and together they made her first quilt, a nine-patch design that is still on her bed today. Thousands of swirls, feathers, and parallel lines later, she has turned her love of stitches and fabric into a thriving business focused on modern machine quilting. Angela also designs fabrics. She lives on the outskirts of Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband, three children, and many, many quilts.
From the time Molly Hanson was very young, creativity has been her constant companion. Throughout her life, she has sought and embraced any way she could find to express her ideas. When she made her first quilt, Molly found an unrivaled outlet for her creativity, and she was hooked. She loves the whole process, especially coming up with her own designs, and is well known for being fearless in her quilting adventures.
When Molly tried free-motion quilting, her head began to swirl with all the possibilities of adding this extra layer of art to her quilts. She loved the control that she gained over the artistic process by being able to quilt her own quilts. Since then, she has quilted for customers including fabric companies, authors, bloggers, and pattern companies. Her other accomplishments include a pattern featured in a magazine; her work featured in videos and advertising for a fabric company; quilted projects published in a book; and she has designed and quilted quilts in major shows. For Molly, the highlight of it all has been writing this book. She hopes to inspire others to join her in the ability to quilt their own quilts, and have control of their process and how it all turns out from start to finish.
