Machine Quilting Practice Panels by Angela Walters

{ Square Chains } Angela Walters, machine-quilter-to-the-stars (and a star herself — she’s like the non-frightening Rachel Zoe of the modern quilting world!), has a new class on Craftsy called Machine Quilting Negative Space.

Teja Williams

I found Teja Williams (teja_jamilla on Spoonflower) by Pinteresting around. She is a freelance surface pattern designer from South Wales, currently living and working in London.

I think these designs would appeal to [...]

Chicagoan Denise Holmes recently joined — her blog and shop are called nisee made. She is an illustrator, primarily for stationery and children’s goods, but she said she’s recently [...]
