Christa Watson from Christa Quilts is our featured designer for February. Christa is an award winning quilter, a teacher, a quilt designer, and an author.
With the release of her first fabric line, Modern Marks, and a second under development, Christa is also a fabric designer. Pictured on left is Christa showing off her new fabric line at October Quilt Market in both the quilts that surround her and the shirt she is wearing!
Christa loves to teach and inspire quilters to make their own quilts from start to finish. She is passionate about teaching quilters to quilt on their domestic sewing machine. Perhaps you've been lucky enough to have taken a class from her at a quilting or guild event? as well as on Craftsy. Her blog and Facebook page have multiple tutorials.
Christa is currently running a QAL for her quilt Squiggles - a pattern from her latest book Piece and Quilt with Pre-Cuts.

Christa is offering one lucky winner a copy of one of her books - winner's choice! (For a US winner, the book will be a signed hardcopy; an international winner will get a digital copy.)
You can visit Christa on her blog, on Instagram, and on Facebook. Find her patterns in her store. Also, checkout her fabric store, The Precut Store. Her books are available from Amazon. Learn more about Christa on this great article on We All Sew. This article includes several free patterns including Modern Puzzle pictured in the above collage.
My goal for February is to get back to work on my "Small Blocks and Scraps" quilt top - it needs a decision about borders, needs to be basted and the quilting started!
