A strong team of piecers, quilters, binders, label attachers made the work light. Thank you to each of you! Special thanks to Jane Barnett who kindly donated so much beautiful fabric from the recently closed Quilter’s Way shop

One of our lovely customers recently requested that we use Quilter’s Dream Cotton Supreme in her king size quilt… she won’t be cold this winter. With that roll now added to our batting wall, it means we currently have all four Quilter’s Dream Cotton Batting in stock.
If you’re not sure which batting to choose and want a toasty, heavy quilt this winter, ask to feel the new Quilter’s Dream Supreme!
