About the Author

Angie PadillaAngie 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: 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.
