I am always looks for new or more information about machine quilting…new techniques, more designs…anything to improve my quilting. A while back I had reviewed a book Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters. I loved the book and have even tried a few of the designs. Then I saw that C&T Publishing had another book written by Angela so I had to check In the Studio with Angela Walters out too. My dream would be able to machine quilt like she does. Her work is just amazing. I can see myself trying a few of her machine quilting techniques. I have to say, I LOVE the machine quilting. It’s just gorgeous! (Jo's Country Junction, 11/25/13)
In The Studio with Angela Walters furthers Angela’s belief that quilting can add another layer of art to the quilt. Each quilt tells a story and you can enhance that story with the quilt designs you choose to use. Learn how to capture the feel of movement or give the illusion of layers and depth. Add texture with thread color or emphasize the piecing of the blocks. This book also has 10 quilt projects along with a commentary on each quilt design and how the quilting is used to tell the story of the quilt. Angela’s machine-quilting design concepts add movement, contrast, depth and more to a quilt. Planning, sketching and practice are the keys to Angela’s success and you too can learn to use these methods. Angela says that these methods work for her. They may or may not be the best for you. 'If you come across an idea you don’t love, tweak it a bit to make it your own!' (The Applique Society Newsletter, July/August 2014)

This book includes patterns for creating quilt tops and tips for quilting them. I don't typically follow a pattern, although I do appreciate the inspiration I get from them. And while I like the quilting tips, all of the quilting designs used in this book are the designs that were introduced in the first book.
There are many quilters out there who will love and benefit from this book, and I will still recommend it to those who I feel will enjoy it. Perhaps I was just not the target audience for this book.
Another thing that makes this book really special are the drawings from Angela's sketchbook, that let you understand her design process. The drawings are lovely, and make the book worth owning. The quilt examples in the book are modern quilting at its finest.
This is the only book you will ever need to learn to use machine quilting to take your quilt from nice to amazing!
Buy this book, and come fly with Angela away from frozen images. Beautiful quilts can be made using these ideas. Also, we need more 'modern' and contemporary quilting ideas to get inspiration from. This is the 21st century, and Angela Walters will be a leader!
obviously it is for someone that is really into this quilting craze sweeping the country.
I am told that this is a great book and that everyone that quilts should have at least one copy!
great gift idea for that quilter to read, when she is not firing up the bernina.

She is a great teacher. With every book and video I learn more. The best advice was to look not at the needle but slightly ahead of it to where you are stitching too. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Patricia
