Christa Watson is longtime quilter and EQ user. She is as enthusiastic about designing quilts as she is about quilting them herself, and she loves to share many of her original designs for free on her blog. When Christa recently discovered that she could share her actual design sketches with other EQ7 users she jumped right on board with it!

Christa hosts a series of very popular quilt alongs on her blog where she guides you step-by-step through the entire process of making a quilt. Just recently she’s made four of her quilt along designs available for EQ7 download, and she’s in the process of making the rest of them available, soon.

When asked about what she likes best about EQ7, Christa said:

“I love that I can see exactly what the finished project will look like ahead of time. I have a hard time ‘making it up as I go along!’ I want to make sure I’m happy with my design and colors before I begin any new quilt.”

This process must work for her because her most recent EQ7 designed quilt, String of Pearls, was awarded an honorable mention at MQX Northwest. You can find step by step tutorials on how to make this quilt here.

Congrats Christa! Be sure to stop by and visit Christa’s blog where she’s hosting an EQ7 giveaway this week!
