Caved Quilt Finish and Review from Dizzy Quilts

I don't share progress or process posts or pictures here or on Instagram. I just never think to stop and take a few pictures while engrossed in a project. Also, because of my full-time job, my sewing time is so precious. I want to make the most of it and just sew! What I thought I could do instead of simply sharing a finished project is provide you with a little bit of a review. Hopefully, you'll find this helpful.

A little note before I get started: I don't get sponsored and pay for everything I share ...

Over the last few months of 2020, I've really been struggling with the quantity of quilts and garments I've been making. I obviously don't need all the quilts I've made and I'm working from home so how many garments do I really need? BUT sewing is how I relax, how I take my mind off work and how I stay sane. So stopping really isn't an option ...

New Quilt Pattern – Interlinked Available in Make Modern Magazine from Christa Quilts

I’m thrilled to introduce a brand new quilt to you today! It’s called Interlinked and was a design I came up with a couple years ago when playing around with some modern design ideas.

Interlinked Quilt PatternInterlinked Quilt by Christa Watson, 64″ x 80″
Made from neutrals of Fandangle, Geo Pop, and Gridwork

I love making all kinds of quilts and most of my designs fall on the “Modern Traditional” side of things. But with Interlinked, I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and really embrace modern principles like “minimalism” and “negative space.”
