Fandangle Virtual Trunk Show

We've had so much fun sharing nine different designers' ideas for using Fandangle this week! We're finishing up our Fandangle spotlight with a virtual trunk show, sharing Christa Watson's patterns. 
Enjoy!


Sparkling Stars
70" x 70"

"I wanted this quilt to be a show stopper! When I designed it, I had so much fun playing with the cool and warm palettes. I wanted a pattern that would make them work harmoniously. I love the grays in the background—they create a shadow effect."

Love the close-up! 


Surplus Strips
67" x 82"
"This scrappy modern quilt is made with precuts. I’ve sewn it in both warm and cool colors. It’s easy to make and very graphic."

Pearl Pendants
50" x 60" or 60" x 72"
"I need to give a shout-out to Heather Black. She has an amazing sense of color, style and scale. She designed it, we co-wrote the pattern, and she made it. Such a fun collaboration!"

"I loved Fandangle the first time I saw Christa’s unboxing video! The fun designs and the bright colors make these fabrics a joy to sew with. I designed this pattern keeping in mind that I wanted to use several pieces of the collection and to showcase how they work together.  It was a joy to sew with these fabrics!  Congratulations, Christa, on a beautiful line!"

Paige from Quilted Blooms; IG: @quiltedblooms

"I was instantly attracted to Christa's Fandangle line because of the mid-century modern vibe and particularly the cool colorway with the lime green and teal combination.   For me, a successful fabric line includes designs and hues that play well with a variety of fabrics from other fabric lines to solids.  The tone-on-tones are so versatile.  I can see including Confetti Crosshatch in quilts over and over again.  And, Beaded Curtain, makes the perfect low-volume background for, my favorite technique, machine applique using the zig-zag stitch.  This is Cute as a Button applique from the book I co-authored, Modern Plus Sign quilts."

Fandangle Hop: Day 2

Sue from Sue O'Very Designs; IG: @sueoverydesigns

"Because I just finished designing a brand new series of patterns, exclusive to shops, and one of the patterns features Christa’s fabric line, I thought it would be fun to share my design process with you for the Marvelous Make-Up Case. This process is a little different than many designers because my projects are all made with an embroidery machine, yep, that’s right, no sewing required!! This technique is called, In the Hoop!"

Sylvia from Flying Parrot Quilts; IG: @flyingparrotquilts


"I love cheerful, colorful fabrics that add interest to my quilts without drawing attention away from the piecing, and Christa's fabrics are absolutely perfect in that regard. They're bright, modern, and Fandangle worked perfectly for my new Pinwheel Rings quilt pattern--especially because she included two gray prints! I used one of the leftover blocks to make a matching pillow, too."
