About the Author

Angie Padilla was born in the USA and raised in Quito, Ecuador.
A self-taught quilter, Angie's initial interest in sewing actually lay in garment making.
Quilting slowly started to take over and eventually evolved into a passion.
Angie's parallel love of computers and Internet technology naturally led to the creation of a website
which continued to grow over the years and which today showcases her quilt patterns: www.ajpadilla.com.
Angie also created the My Dream House CD, won the EQ Anniversary contest,
and placed second in the Single Maker category for the Do You EQ? Contest.
