Do You EQ? Blogger and modern quilt designer Christa Watson does!

Christa has been designing original quilts and class samples since the early days of EQ4. Over the years, she’s received numerous awards and recognition for work, all designed using Electric Quilt software. In 2013 she decided to get serious about pattern design when her first quilt submission, Colorful Chevrons, made the cover of Quilty magazine. Since then, she’s fallen head over heels with modern quilting and she can’t wait to see where it leads her next. She can sketch out any design in EQ7 that she can dream up, even those using wonky blocks and improvised layouts.

“I’m a detail-oriented person who loves to get all of the thinking and planning out of the way before I begin any project. With the ease and convenience of Electric Quilt, I know exactly how my finished quilt is going to turn out before I ever make the first cut.”
