I love this book! It's a fresh new approach to using precut fabrics and the quilting instructions will give you confidence to make your own quilt from start to finish!
I'm really enjoying the variety of quilts and quilting ideas in this book. I for one have a large stack of precuts that I'm looking forward to whittling down with some of these patterns. I just finished the SWAK quilt pattern and appreciated the easy but detailed instructions.
Piece and Quilt with Precuts is an amazing quilting book. The patterns are so straight-forward and the instructions are clear (one of the best parts of any quilt pattern in my opinion). Christa covers the process from start to finish. Each different pattern goes from fabric selection to quilting motif and each and every one gives you a gorgeous finished project. The patterns in the book are so much fun and are quick finishes too. Great Book!
I was delighted with this book! Christa Watson guides you diligently through each step of the quilt-making process, covering absolutely everything from choosing fabric and thread, to how to press seams and tie off your threads. 'Piece and Quilt with Precuts' is packed with lots of handy tips and suggestions and easy to understand diagrams. I particularly appreciated the detailed information on how to quilt the different projects.

Christa encourages the reader to mix and match the different quilting and piecing designs which really widens the scope of the book. The quilting projects are listed by ease of use so completing each project in turn would be a very effective course in quilting with the reader able to tackle complex free motion quilting by the time the last projects are made.

Christa's clear and concise style makes the book very suitable for those that are new to quilting but the sheer wealth of information included makes it a handy reference for experienced quilters too. I highly recommend it!
The hardest decision for me when making a quilt is how to quilt it. Christa gives wonderful, detailed instructions on a variety of quilting motifs using both Free Motion Quilting and Walking Foot Quilting. She has specific motifs for each quilt, but encourages you to mix and match and express yourself.
I love buying precuts, but never know what to do with them other than build my fabric stash! The patterns in the book are designed for precut fabric bundles and are perfect when you have a favorite bundle and want a quilt to showcase them. Christa provides both the cutting measurements and the lay out for cutting the fabric, which helps a lot with not wasting fabric. Instructions for piecing are clear and easy to follow.
I have been working on the squiggles quilt. I absolutely love this book. There are so many fun quilting ideas that a person can use.
Projects featuring in "Piece and Quilt with Precuts" are amazing and easy to follow. This book would suit any enthusiastic quilter who wants to make beautiful quilts with the least amount of hassles. The book has clear instructions on both Piecing and Quilting methods.
I'm just finishing up the Star Struck quilt and it was So much fun! I love how Christa takes you from fast easy cutting, through piecing AND quilting! Tons of projects and thorough instructions. Easy to work with precuts or from your stash like I did. Don't hesitate, it's a keeper!
