Hi friends! I’m sharing a new book today – Machine Quilting with Style by Christa Watson, and have a fun giveaway too. Read on!

Machine Quilting With Style - AmysCreativeSide.com

When Christa was working on Machine Quilting with Style, my first fabric line, Modern Neutrals was in sample yardage, and included in her quilt Focal :

Focal-Point

Isn’t it great! I love the spiral quilting from the center of the star, which isn’t the center of the quilt – nice touch! Christa is super encouraging and supportive of the new quilter in her book. Offering lots of tips and advice, so that anyone can have success no matter their machine, or experience.

I especially love the “perfectly imperfect” mindset that Christa shares throughout the book – sometimes you have to relax your perfectionist tendencies to be able to enjoy the process to the fullest. I know I do!

Christa also walks you through the ideal set up for your machine and you so that you and your quilt are supported throughout the quilting process. So before you say, “I can’t” check out Machine Quilting with Style for all the tips and encouragement you need to get started quilting. The patterns in the book are also great practice for a new machine quilter, with various sizes, and skill levels included.

Focal Point - Chic Neutrals no lines

I have a Focal kit to giveaway, with an ebook of Machine Quilting with Style! Christa added Chic Neutrals prints this time, which are in stores now, and mocked the quilt up to give you the idea of how it could look in other colors.
