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 Precut 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 leftover 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 share 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.
In this Show N Tell, Alex and Ricky view some of Christa's quilts and learn why quilting is her passion.
