Show 2409: Christa Watson / Bill Volckening

Featuring: Christa Watson / Bill Volckening

Posts On: April 21, 2019

Trailer


Alex and Ricky visit with Christa Watson who was introduced to quilting 25 years ago. Where she really excels is machine quilting, and it is her passion. She fell in love with the quilts at the first QuiltCon and opened an online fabric shop to support her "habit" and family. Her shop is called The Pre-Cut Store. She was even one of the first stores to advertise on TQS! They take a look at her quilts.

Christa loves working with pre-cuts. They create dynamic and interesting quilts…and you can get to the machine quilting faster. She shares tips for quick and easy quilt blocks using pre-cuts (2 1/2" jelly rolls and 5” square charm packs). Not one to waste fabric, Christa shares a fast and fun way to make improv blocks. It’s a great way to use left over scraps.

Christa loves combining straight walking foot quilting with free-motion. Then she demonstrates how easy it is to quilt some of her favorite free motion motifs.

Then, Bill Volckening is back to shares quilts that are antiques, but speak very much to Modernism. He said quilters from the past headed toward the future and many were very daring in their designs.
