​Krista is a popular teacher and presenter at traditional and modern guilds in Canada and internationally. Krista enjoys making traditionally-informed modern quilting using designer prints, solids, linen and retired clothing.
The Edmonton Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a two-day modern quilting workshop where Krista will spend one day teaching us her techniques on improv using her “Speed Date” quilt as inspiration (see below yellow, white and black design).The other day will be spent on learning the “Round Peg Square Hole” technique, for those who like accuracy.

All registrants will be given a supply list in plenty of time before the event.

Krista is also presenting her trunk show on the origins and design aesthetic of the Modern Quilt Guild, her own quilting story and a trunk show of projects from Make It, Take It. Door Prizes!
