How Do I Quilt It?
By Christa Watson
Description:
This informative lecture is based on Christa’s book of the same name.
Learn the secrets for domestic machine-quilting success which include: adequate
basting, choosing the right thread colors, thinking about how to divide and conquer
each task, and learning how to create rich texture with little to no marking of the
quilt.
Christa will also discuss the importance of making a quilting plan, so you can figure
out the best path around the quilt with the fewest stops and starts. Once you see
how easy and carefree her methods can be, you’ll feel empowered to quilt your own
quilts!

Bio: Christa Watson is an award-winning quilter who loves to perform all of her own “stunts”
on a regular home sewing machine. She’s a fabric designer for Benartex, and author of
several books on machine quilting. She loves to empower others to quilt their own quilts and
have fun doing it!

Christa will have fabric and patterns for sale beginning at 5:30

MY FABRIC: I currently design fabric for Benartex as part of their urban, contemporary brand
called Contempo Studio. I love combining bold color and rich texture to create graphic, geometric
designs that you’ve not seen anywhere else!

         

 

MY PATTERNS: I love developing in-depth single patterns that are available in both print and
PDF. This allows me to fully explore one concept at a time and I love including full color-diagrams
and machine quilting suggestions with each design!
MY BOOKS: I am the author of several machine quilting books which share my tried and tested
methods for getting great results while having fun at the same time! Each inspiring project includes
complete instructions from start to finish.
