Local Quilt Shop Day is brought to you by the team at The Fabric Shop Network
|Dream Pink in it's raw form.|
|Dream Pink is made in the USA. |
Packaged with LOVE from our house to your craft room!
The number one question always asked is..
"Can you use the Dream Pink when working with white quilts?"
In fact, up and coming modern quilter, Scott Lunt was at McTavish Quilting Studio in Duluth, Minnesota, finishing up his fourth quilt with the Pink.
Scott calls this the "Plus" quilt and we have to agree. We give him an A++ on this one!
Our own office #battgirl, Erin, found this pattern from Paper Panache. It couldn't be more perfect to tie in Dream Pink and breast cancer.
We hope you will join us in our efforts to support patients battling breast cancer.
Quilters Dream will donate 10% of the gross revenue from the sale of Dream Pink to benefit underfunded medical research for advanced & metastatic breast cancer.
If you haven't already tried the Dream Pink, what are you waiting for!? Contact your local quilt shop to order or give us a call for a sample.
Don't forget, we'd love to see your quilt projects and hear your stories so be sure to reach out!

If I want something heavier, such as for a wall hanging, I use the Select weight. I recently purchased king size batts in each weight and the Select one comes in a quite bit bigger bag! That makes a difference when you’re quilting a bed quilt.

Working with Quilters Dream Wool
I also like the Quilters Dream Wool. I like to put a cozy flannel fabric backing on my baby quilts but it does add to the weight. Wool batting is lighter and fluffier and balances the flannel. It washes really well. I have machine-washed and dried quilts with wool batting and I’m very happy with the results.

Join Catherine's webinar!
Now I’m enjoying travelling and teaching quilting techniques all over the USA and I always recommend Quilters Dream batting. I’m excited to be taking part in a live webinar next week. I’ll be sharing lots of my favorite techniques and tips for walking foot quilting on a domestic machine. There will be an opportunity to ask questions and get them answered at the end of my presentation.
