Welcome, Canton Village Quilt Works!

A lot of us really like making quilt tops.  In fact, we like that part so much that we're often lured away by fresh stacks of fabric before we've waded through the finishing process.  And then there are those quilters who anticipate the finishing part, like Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works.  She's been quilting for about 17 years and offering her longarm services since 2000.  Take a look...

I've never even seen a longarm quilting machine in real life, but I'd love to see one in action!  I've heard that once you get the hang of it, it's quite fun.  If you've been considering sending off some quilt tops to get finished, stop in to see Jackie's rates and gallery of work.  Did you know that you don't even have to baste your quilts?  Seriously.  It's really as easy as sending off your quilt top and backing.  You can buy the batting from Canton Village.  But, you do usually finish off the binding yourself.

In addition to longarm and accuquilt cutting services, Canton Village Quilt Works is an online fabric store specializing in designers like Kaffe Fassett and Patricia Bravo with basics in Kona cotton and Essex linen/cotton as well.  I think these Kona bundles would be an ideal prize for a future event.  Don't you? 

And here are some pretty print bundles that caught my eye:

From left, this is Oval Elements, Honey Child, Filigree and Strawberry Picnic. Is it almost my birthday?  Yes, I think it is...

Thank-you so much, Jackie, for choosing to support Stitched in Color.  It is a pleasure to have you on board!  And, thank-you, dear readers for shopping with my sponsors.  I am inching closer to my goals for Stitched in Color as business, and it's each of you that have made that possible. 



  1. I love Jackies store...she has an amazing line of solids with good prices and customer service is the best!!

  2. Ugh, those Kona spectrum bundles always kill me! I will have to keep Jackie's longarm services in mind for special quilts in the future!

  3. I really do need to try a quilt with solids sometime soon.

  4. Canton Village Quilts is great - and so cool that she has quilting services! I love her Kona bundles.

    You should absolutely go to a quilt show so that you can try out a long-arm. They are very fun to play around with!

  5. Jackie is a wonderful person! The fabrics she sells are always so pretty.

  6. Jackie is great. Super creative, great blog to read and an excellent place to fabric shop. :)

  7. Jackie makes so many amazing quilts! I follow her blog for quite a while, her technique is very impressive!

  8. I like your new sponsor. Reasonable prices.
