Blog Hop: Piece and Quilt with Precuts and a book giveaway

Gridwork quilt, pattern by Christa Watson

Today I’m reviewing a quilting book by Christa Watson of Christa Quilts and giving away one electronic copy.

Christa is an award-winning quilter and designer. She has authored many books, articles and patterns on quilting.

I really like the quilts in her latest book Piece and Quilt with Pre-cuts.

You can get a *signed* copy of the book on Christa’s shop.

This book is my kind of book. It’s full of good advice and tips on quilting. It has instructions to make 11 beautiful easy to make modern quilts and it’s made with pre-cuts. It can’t get any easier than that!

If you don’t have any pre-cuts that’s ok too. Just follow the tips on choosing fabrics Christa gives on her book.

There’s no waste in this book. One of the patterns uses the bits and pieces left over from the other quilts!

The book comes with very detailed instructions on how to quilt each quilt.

I put the book to the test and made a small version of Gridwork, a modern quilt made with blocks that are asymmetric.

I love asymmetric blocks because usually you can change the look of any quilt by just placing them in different directions.

You can put together this quilt in a weekend.

Over the next few days you can see all the quilts in the book made by quilters around the globe. Check out the blog hop schedule.

Giveaway CLOSED

This giveaway has ended.

I’ve selected a random winner out of the 109 comments entered. The winner will receive an e-copy of Christa’s book Piece and quilt with precuts.
