Angie Padilla author Angie Padilla is a quilt designer from Quito, Ecuador Formerly an interpreter, Angie turned full time to quilting, which is her passion.

Angie lived in Chicago during her first two years of college, where her favorite hangout was The Art Institute of Chicago, visiting it nearly every week. She was fascinated by the Thorne Miniature Rooms, and started collecting miniatures. Later on, while living in California, she built a 1:12 scale house and started making all the furniture and accessories for it. If she hadn't taken up quilting,she probably would have continued with this interest in miniatures.

Angie emphasizes that using EQ5 or EQ6, My Dream House designs can be used for fused or needle turn appliqué. Print the patterns from EQ5 or EQ6 at any size, and with options to modify, resize, or re-color the patterns, you can make each pattern your own! Mix and match patterns to design your very own rooms then print and fuse to create charming projects like tote-bags, clothing, wall hangings, quilts, pillows and more! The CD even comes with a special bonus project for a Child’s Dollhouse Felt Board that is a perfect parent and child or grandchild activity

Her idea for doll "people" came from a family discussion around the dinner table, in which Angie was discussing the panel she was working on. Her grandkids, Alexia and Julian, wanted her to make them a house panel immediately. But her nineteen-year old daughter Jamie pointed out the need for dolls to play dollhouse, so that is where the idea of including doll people came from.

Angie think the projects in this CD can be used in many different ways. The most obvious is as wall hangings, but she offers many other uses. Her favorite ones are related to the bathroom, probably because it is often the most overlooked room in the house. She suggests using all the perfume bottles or bathtubs to decorate a bathroom in different ways, such as using the motifs along the edge of a shower curtain or along a window ledge. Or on individual towels or bathrobes for "his & hers" gifts. Instead of quilting small wall hangings., why not frame several individual blocks to hang together in a row, as a set? One of the houses provided comes with a front and back.

Angie also envisions a large cushion with the front on one side and the back on the other. Or perhaps a bed-sized quilt in a child's room made of one of the house sides, and a wall hanging over the bed with the other side, or try using different motifs for table runners and place mats, or covers for kitchen appliances. Appliqué one of the clocks as a wall hanging, but attach a clock mechanism to make it a real working clock.

Angie encourages her users to think of other nontraditional but quilty uses, like using fabric sheets to print the rooms of a house as individual pockets for a house "organizer". And why limit it to fabric? Stencil the designs onto the wall or other decorative objects! This applies to any room in the house. The idea here is to take the projects as they are, or divide them up and use them in parts, or mix and match with whatever other designs you like. Quitters are so creative, I'm sure they will discover many other possibilities we haven't even thought of!

The following Review is provided by Electric Quilt Company.

Play house with over 450 pieces to mix, match and make! The block patterns and projects are installed into EQ5 or EQ6. Use EQ5 software or EQ6 software to print the patterns. Use these projects with EQ5 or EQ6. * The block patterns cannot be printed directly from the CD.
