Welcoming Angela Walters // Make It Right Challenge

[one-half] [/one-half] [one-half last] Today, I am excited to be welcoming Angela Walters from Quilting is my Therapy  to Pile O' Fabric. Angela is an award winning machine quilter, Craftsy teacher, Art Gallery fabric designer, and book Author! Angela is visiting today to share about a fantastic fabric challenge that boasts some wonderful prizes and fun! [/one-half] [divider] Thanks so much, Alyssa, for letting me take over your blog for today! I am so excited to talk about the Make It Right Challenge.


When I designed my first collection with Art Gallery fabrics, I knew that I wanted to incorporate a modern quilt panel and I was so thrilled when they agreed!! The result is the Right Angles quilt panel (which is a part of my Textures collection) right angles panel The first thing you might notice is that this panel is a little different than a normal quilt panel. Each yard consists of a modern quilt panel and a coordinating print. As a machine quilter, I designed that panel as a way to practice machine quilting. But it can be so much more that, think of it as a jump start to your project! We put together the challenge to see exactly what original and interesting things could be made using the panel! The basic idea of the challenge is simple, using at least one Right Angles panel and supplementing with Art Gallery PURE elements solids (if you would like), create something. And by something, I mean anything!!! It can be a quilt, clothing or even __________ (fill in the blank)… [one-half] [caption id="attachment_1574" align="aligncenter" width="342"]fractions pieced by Alex Ledgerwood:[/caption]   [/one-half] [one-half last] [caption id="attachment_1575" align="aligncenter" width="218"]full-robe-218x300 pieced by Mandy Leins[/caption] [/one-half]
