Christa Watson is co author of the book The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting with Angela Walters. Christa has made several quilts for shows and has won awards for them while using her domestic sewing machine! She is a quilt teacher, author of 3 books and owner of an online Precut store. I have been watching Christa’s career for several years and I even won a giveaway she had once! She sent me the blue pin. I also have a BQF (best quilting friend) who went to QuiltCon and sent me the pink pin. One workshop I attended with Christa teaching, she said that all of the students were her BQFs now. I certainly feel that way now and I have a pin! Listen and enjoy to our conversation about nearly everything from fmq to modern quilting to our roots in tradition.
