Modern quilts can be liberating while they allow you to explore the boundaries of what is possible. Good technique is still important, and everyone’s quilts will end up being unique, while still following the same construction process.

Christa Watson is an enthusiastic and experienced instructor and award-winning quilter who loves to encourage others to find joy in making. Living with her husband and three children in Las Vegas, Nevada, she currently writes a column titled “Quilt as Desired” for the National Quilting Association. Look for Christa’s book, “Machine Quilting With Style” in the summer of 2015 from Martingale/That Patchwork Pace.
