What is Quilting
One of the first questions people ask is “What is Quilting?” Simply put, quilting joins two or more fabrics together to form a thicker fabric. There is, of course, much more to quilting. Barb’s Quilt Nook, Etc. has been a favorite among Texas Hill Country quilt shops for over 15 years. Over that time we have had the privilege of serving thousands of Texans and travelers alike. We offer high quality quilting fabric, notions, sewing machines and more. Whether you are new or experienced we have something for you. Stop by our store Monday through Saturday, catch us at a quilt show throughout Texas, or call us. We are here to help.
We offer the highest quality quilting fabrics. Just because a label reads “100% Cotton” doesn’t mean it is fit for use in your quilting project. In fact, there are a number of factors that determine what kind of fabric you should choose for your quilting project. Not all cotton fabrics are made the same. The large majority of cotton fabrics found online and in big box stores will not stand up to the rigor quilting process, let alone the test of time. Learn how choosing quilting fabric determines not only the longevity of your quilt, but how your finished quilt will look once it’s done.
