This blog belongs to machine-quilting rockstar Angela Walters. For anyone who loves to drool over beautiful and intricate quilting designs, this blog is for you!

There’s one word that describes what Rachel Hauser’s Stitched In Color blog makes us feel: happy. Rachel has only been sewing for four years, but you can tell the passion and talent she has for quilting! The fabrics she uses are bright and colorful, and her designs range from classic blocks to improvisational piecing. Her blog has something for everyone! She features free tutorials for projects, sells her great patterns, and even hosts quilt-alongs and giveaways. And best of all, she’s using her talents to help others. Many of her quilts, like the one pictured above, are donated to charities.
