A Day in the Life of Angela Walters
Hey there, quilters. I’m Angela Walters of the Midnight Quilt Show and True Up! As a host, wrangler of children, and an avid wine drinker, a day in my life can get pretty crazy. Here’s a peek into my routine as told through some of my Bluprint favorites.
The truth is this: My life revolves around my family. And given my busy schedule, sometimes it's hard to make time. That’s why we've started a new tradition of baking together. Below I’m sharing some kid-approved classes we've all enjoyed together.
Who says kids don’t belong in the kitchen? In this four-part cooking class, award-winning teen chef Amber Kelley empowers kids to take charge in the kitchen and — with a little help from their parents — cook fresh, tasty meals. From shopping for ingredients to prepping, cooking and plating, Amber equips them with the skills and know-how they need to become confident young chefs.
Even though the quilting usually waits until midnight, the inspiration starts early! Mid-morning, I research fabrics, patterns, and tap into tips like these to find my flow.
Time to Get To Work
Lunch is best paired with laughter, right? And there’s nobody I’d rather share a meal with than my girlfriends-in-quilting, Tula Pink and Christa Watson. Guess what? You can spend an afternoon with them, too, right on Bluprint!
Tula has been a long time friend and inspiration to me. In this episode of True Up - get a look into my goofy relationship with her!
Take the next steps in your quilting journey and piece a beautiful throw-size quilt.Not only is Christa Watson a wiz with variable stars, she’s an excellent teacher (and an absolute blast, to boot!). Are you a beginner? Don't miss her latest Startup Project in which she makes a stunning Starry Path quilt.
When I’m indulging in a little me time (hey, it doesn't happen often), I like to work my creativity in new ways. Lately, that’s been crocheting. Wanna give it a try?
Crochet Time for Me
Build your skills as you master one of the most popular stitch patterns — the ripple stitch.
If it wasn't obvious already, my day is pretty packed! Here are some Bluprint picks I’ve been itching to get to when that long-awaited free time kicks in.
