About Me

Hi! I’m Christa and I love to quilt!


I’ve been sharing my love of quilting for over 20 years, teaching others to enjoy every part of the quilt-making process. My quilting life changed for the better in 2013 when I discovered my passion for modern quilts and combined it with my style of “perfectly imperfect” machine quilting.

My Books

I am the author of several machine quilting books which share my tried and tested methods for getting great results while having fun at the same time! Each inspiring project includes complete instructions from start to finish.

.My Fabric

I currently design fabric for Benartex as part of their urban, contemporary brand called Contempo Studio. I love combining bold color and rich texture to create graphic, geometric designs that you’ve not see anywhere else!

My Patterns

I love developing in-depth single patterns that are available in both print and PDF. This allows me to fully explore one concept at a time and I love including full color-diagrams and machine quilting suggestions with each design!
