Quilt With Us

Angela's Blog (11)

ch-ch-ch- changes!

Some of you may have noticed a few changes on the Connecting Threads web site today.

In addition to giving the web site a bit of a face lift, we've also lowered our fabric prices and introduced batiks and a new basics line, Quilters Candy, that will be available year round! The solids and semi-solids are only $3.96/yd. Prints are now $4.96/yd instead of $5.96. This is the same quality fabric, just at a lower…

Win a $50 gift card

You may have noticed a few changes on our site this morning, namely the addition of this little guy:

That's right, starting last month all of the cotton for our collections is grown right here in the US, and it's printed and woven in North America. If you start asking around, I think you'll see that there aren't many other fabric companies that can make the same claim.

We're so excited about the change that we want you to help us… Continue

We've boxed up more of the quilts and quilt tops we've sewn for photo samples here in the office. This batch didn't fit the size requirements for Quilts of Valor, but they were perfect for Project Linus!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Project Linus (and I know many of you generous quilters out there know Project Linus well!!), it's an organization… Continue

My first design project

Connecting Threads Quilts of Valor donation!

Since I'm in charge of most of Connecting Threads' PR, I get the pleasure of working with various charities to donate all the finished quilts and projects that our quilters sew up as samples of catalog and web photography. It's one of the most satisfying parts of my job!

Today I'm packaging up 11 quilts for Quilts of Valor. These quilts are going to the… Continue
