How to Work with Pre-Cuts with Christa Watson | Modern Leaning Antique Quilts
(Show 2409) Christa Watson makes easy quilts using pre-cut fabrics. 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 easy way to make improvisational quilt blocks that's also a great way to use leftover fabric.
Christa was introduced to quilting 25 years ago. Where she really excels is machine quilting, and it is her passion. Christa loves combining straight walking foot quilting with free-motion. She demonstrates how easy it is to quilt some of her favorite free motion motifs. 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 The Quilt Show!
Bill Volckening shares quilts that are antiques, but were modern quilts before their time. He said quilters from the past headed toward the future and many were very daring in their designs.
