Common Threads Quilting

14 12 2016

Hubby and I drove to Texas for a pre-Christmas visit with our daughter and family. Following a hunch, I googled “quilt shops in Texas” to see if there was one along our route. Common Threads Quilting in Waxahachie looked the most promising, and it did not disappoint.

If you like Civil War and/or 1930s repro fabric, you will feel right at home in this shop. They have it all – from cheddar to shirtings to the latest repro releases. The tall ceilings facilitate the hanging of many samples for kits the shop assembles. The Cottontail Meadow block of the month caught my eye. Isn’t it precious?

The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. And all the colors, fabrics, and samples combine to inspire!

I was happy to hear that most of their merchandise is also offered online!

Should you stop by Common Threads Quilting, you might plan an additional hour in your shopping trip for browsing in the nearby antique malls as I did. Besides admiring vintage furniture, glassware, jewelry, and memorabilia, I spotted a pile of quilts. The string pieced tulip quilt is my favorite!

Thanks, Waxahachie, for an enjoyable afternoon!

The stairs remind me of Bear Paw Quilting in Idaho.
