I am delighted to share Christa's newest book with you! It was hard to decide which of the eleven delightful quilts I wanted to make for this blog hop...I really love all of them. So, I decided on Squiggles, and imagine my delight to find a Sunday Drive layer cake on the shelf in my fabric closet...that clenched it for me as that is what Christa used in her book.
Love Sunday Drive by Pat Sloan! I had been saving this to use and this was the perfect quilt for the layer cake. What is your favorite pre-cut? I think mine are layer cakes and fat quarters.
I believe that wavy line quilting is my new favorite "get it done" quilting that I have been using on charity quilts and grand-kid quilts, etc. Not every quilt needs a lot of quilting, sometimes time is just not on my side! This is a great walking foot design to add to your quilting skills.
Here is my finished quilt....I love it! Not giving it away....unless someone thinks they need to take it home. You know...my daughter, my sister, or a grand kid...they have a way of absconding with a quilt quite often! I'm happy that they love and cherish them!
If you want a signed copy of Christa's book, click here on this link. I have all of Christa's books and I like her teaching style. Also, check out her Craftsy class, she is a thorough and easy to follow teacher. It is worth every minute and no matter where you are on your quilting journey, you will learn something new and helpful. I have been doing this for many years, and always learn something new in a class or in a book. In Piece and Quilt with Precuts, you will find eleven quilts to choose from, as well as eighteen machine quilting designs using free motion quilting, walking foot, and a combination of the two. You can easily build your machine quilting skills on your domestic machine using Christa's easy to follow directions and inspiration.
And...one more thing! I am giving away an e-book of one of Christa's books, Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting. Please leave a comment to be entered. You can also go to my Instagram account and follow me and leave a comment for another chance to win.
