PIQF is coming up soon, and as a veteran Quilt Show attendee, I wanted to offer a few words of advice, so that you can enjoy the show! As fun and exciting as these events are, they can also involve many hours on your feet, and an overwhelmingly stimulating array of visual and tactile experiences!

We are so pleased to carry Designer Bali Boxes chock full of beautiful handmade batik fabrics!
Select your favorite color scheme and create a quilted Bali Tote from the included pattern or use the fabric for your own project. Each box contains 5 half-yard cuts of color coordinated fabric plus a pattern.
Once the project has been completed, you will have a lovely fabric-covered box left for personal use. The beautiful handcrafted Designer Bali Box can be used for storing sewing notions, jewelry or anything your heart desires.
Dream Green is a soft, cozy batting made 100% from recycled plastic bottles! This batting can be machine-washed and dried with little to no shrinkage. Dream Green is wrinkle-resistant. We are quite pleased to be able to offer this to our customers as an alternative to more traditional batting materials.
Each pound of Dream Green Batting keeps 10 plastic bottles out of our landfills. Plastic bottles are cut into chips, washed, melted and extruded into fine polyester fibers. These recycled fibers are indistinguishable from “virgin” polyester fibers yet are made without depleting our precious natural resources. To avoid additional processing we have kept the soft “natural” green bottle color – but you can rest assured that Dream Green is colorfast and compatible to all your finest quilts and projects.
Dream Green comes in these sizes:
