Welcome to another Follower Friday!  Today we feature Angie of Crafted Angles.  She considers herself a relatively new quilter, but by the looks of the list of her WIPs, she's definitely no rookie!  She's got a lot of great projects going on and a super cool format to her blog.  Let's learn more about her...





Angie of Philly Suburb, PA

Occupation: Business Analyst

Significant Other/Kids/Pets:

I am married to my awesome husband, Jim. We have one chocolate lab named Dunder.

# Years Quilting:

Although I learned basic quilting 4 years ago, I truly only started quilting regularly last year after

my 19 year old brother suddenly passed away. I found quilting to be a form of therapy. Over the past year, I followed many blogs, took four series of quilt classes, started a blog, and joined the Philly Modern Quilt Guild. It has been a great outlet.

How you learned to quilt:

I was temporarily working in Virginia for a few months. On my way home each night, I drove by G Street Fabrics in Centreville, VA. A lady that worked on Mondays helped me pick out fabric for a quilt. Since my schedule didn’t allow for me to take a class, she provided the basic directions to get started. Each Monday, I came back and she described the next step. After a few months, I finished my first quilt, which was a Turning Twenty pattern. Since then, I taught my mom how to quilt and we have taken several classes together at our local quilt store.


Favorite Completed Project Description:

My favorite quilt that I made was a Pickle Dish quilt from batiks using a paper piecing technique. The finished size was 72″ by 72″ and was machine quilted. This quilt was given to a friend for her wedding earlier this year.



Quilting workstation Setup:

Last month, my husband completed my Quilting Room. I have a folding table on bed risers for a cutting station. Under the table, I have some of my fabric stash organized in storage bins. I do all of my piecing on an old desk with a small cutting mat and iron at arm’s reach. Since I don’t have a design wall yet, I have a spare bed that works for my quilt layouts.



Machine(s):  I have a Bernina Aurora 440 Quilter’s Edition. 

Tool you can't live without in your sewing space:  My favorite tool is my seam ripper, as I use it all the time!
