Nothing makes my day more than seeing what you all are making with my fabrics! And I love seeing when you’ve used one of my patterns for your latest project. With so many options, it’s an honor to see these beautiful quilts and works in progress “in the wild!” 🙂
So today I thought it would be fun to do a little roundup of what you all have been making with my designer products. It makes my day to see these pop up on social media 🙂
This gorgeous photo shows Kathleen Hetzler Riordan with quilts on her beautiful white fence. She says, “My street had a pop-up quilt show today and four of us who are quilters put our quilts out on our picket fence, and neighbors walked, drove and golf carted by to see them! It was very impromptu but lots of fun! Christa’s Puzzle Box is on the far left!”

I love this outdoor image—it shouts “Summertime!” Kathleen lives in Virginia and the quilt show took place on May 24, 2020. I’m sure it was a source of joy for many people during the pandemic.
Sally J. is currently working on a baby quilt with my Color Weave pattern and Abstract Garden prints. This design is great for 2.5 strips—maybe you have a favorite sitting around just waiting to be used?! Or maybe you’d like to treat yourself to one of my colorful modern strip sets!

Megan G. used purple for her Optical Illusion quilt and I love it! This design works in so many great combinations. Pay attention to the instructions for the values of each fabric so that your illusion shows up nicely.

Here’s another one in progress from Kate S. I love that red and aqua combo!
Debora L shared her success in quilting continuous spirals on her black, white and gray version shown below:
Kate S. is gets bonus points for combining fat quarters from ALL of my fabric lines to make this colorful project below:
I can’t wait to see more!!
And I see Good Vibes fabrics in her stacks of Flying Geese. I wonder where this is going? I’m sure it will look amazing when finished!
How about this scrappy house quilt? Judy A. posted it in my Christa Quilts Facebook group and had this to say about it:
This is my “Village” (Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co). Mostly Christa’s fabrics plus some Patrick Lose, Allison Glass, and my stash. I can honestly say that working on this made me SO happy.
I sure love it when I see my fabrics playing so nicely with others!!
Sandi S. in Australia is making this bright and happy number with Geo Pop fat quarters and half-square triangles. That’s some gorgeous eye candy, isn’t it?!
Last but not least for today, I just love this beauty above made by Nancy Mahoney. She combined a bunch of my fat quarter color bundles along with Op Squares in white from Geo Pop for the background. You can actually find the pattern for it in the July/August issue of Love of Quilting Magazine.
I so appreciate all of you! Thank you for making this the best job under the sun!
