Welcome to Cotton & Chocolate Quilt Co.

Quilt Sample Sale, Starts Saturday, November 15

We've been doing this sale every year and while we don't try to keep it a secret, it always amazes us that these quilts are not sold out in just a few hours. What is it? Each year we invite our instructors and staff to collect quilts they would like to sell, whether retired quilt class samples or personal treasures.  And every year we see the most amazing quilts go on sale for bargain prices.

This is a great opportunity to purchase a quilt either for yourself or to give as a holiday gift. Tell your friends, especially those that keep asking you to make them a quilt (and you just can't seem to find the time).

The sale is during regular business hours, starts on Saturday, November 15th, and will last until all samples are gone.  A word to the wise, most of the quilts are sold in the first few hours. The rest will generally get sold over the next several days. Come early for the best selection.  Please note there will be no preview available on the Friday before.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: These quilts are not sold by the store, and as such payment is made directly to the quilt owner. Acceptable forms of payment include cash or check made payable to the quilt owner. Sorry, but credit cards cannot be accepted.


New Items on Our Website

We've been busy at Cotton & Chocolate creating new patterns and kits and are excited to make them available to you on-line. All of our new patterns can be found in the on-line store category called Hot Chocolate Press Patterns. All of our new kits can be found in the on-line store category called Kits.  We have Holiday kits and several kits featuring English Paper Piecing. 

Scrappy Folk Heart Cover
(pattern only)
This is  a great pattern written by Margie Fisher who has been teaching this quilt design for years and finally has it published! Way to go Margie!

(kit only)
This picture doesn't do this quilt justice. The fabric is way cute and the panels are all taken from the famous movie we saw as kids.

Merriment Cover
(kit only)
This is a great holiday quilt that just looks amazing. You won't be disappointed after making this beauty.

English Rose Lane Cover
(available as a pattern or kit)
This is Marilyn's latest design and is it ever a stunning beauty, currently my favorite. What I love about this quilt is that she used the bamboo batting and it came out super soft!

Lady Bug Cover
(available as a kit or a pattern)
You may not realize it, but the cute lady bugs in this quilt design are actually made up of English Paper Pieced hexagons and diamonds. Come that with a little embroidery thread and you have cute little lady bugs on your quilt!


 New fabric?

You may not believe this, but we really do get new fabric in just about every day.  If you want to see (and maybe buy) the latest fabric before it gets sold to someone else, you have to come into the shop regularly. Even if you don't buy something, it is always nice (and comforting) to stop by and see what's new. You might just surprise yourself!

While you are at the shop, remember to look around at the class samples. There are still many classes for November and December that have openings.


Fall Newsletter & Class Schedule
The Fall Newsletter & Class Schedule is now available.  Click here to download you copy. Be sure to read it cover to cover because it's packed full of great information. The class samples will be available for viewing starting Friday, August 15th (the first day of our big sale).  Class sign-ups start the following weekend on Saturday, August 23rd. Remember, if you sign up for a class on the first day of sign-ups, you receive a 10% discount on your class supplies.


Pumpkin Patch Lane  

Arlene Stamper's new fall quilt design is called Pumpkin Patch Lane. Cotton & Chocolate Quilt Company is offering this design as both a BOM and a quilt kit.  The cost for this 6-month BOM is $32.17 per month for a total of $193.00. If you pay for the entire BOM up front we are offering a 10% discount for a total of $173.70.  If you pay for the entire BOM, you can elect to receive it over six months or as a one-time quilt kit.  Taxes and shipping costs will be applied as appropriate. We anticipate the monthly shipping cost to be $5.00 per month if you receive it monthly, or $15.00 if you want the entire kit at once. If ordering the kit, please note fabric is cut as a regular kit and not as six separate BOMs. Program start date is planned for early August.

Take a stroll down Pumpkin Patch Lane where Autumn is being celebrated!   Pumpkin Patch Lane has 4 Autumn themed houses, a sweet squirrel and oak tree fusible applique block, an easy pieced basket block and a quick pieced pumpkin and vine border.  The details of each house block will warm your heart…from the pilgrims serving dinner in “Give Thanks” to the house that is shaped like an acorn in the “Acorn House” to the charming scarecrow overlooking the “Harvest Barn”!  The Accessory Fabric packet includes all the cute specialty fabric for the blocks including the Pilgrims in the Window, the Scarecrow Face and the Fall Quilt on the Barn. Finished Quilt is 76” x 65”. “Pumpkin Patch Lane” is made with “Chrysanthemum” by Maywood Studio fabrics.

Birthday Program

You may or may not remember this, but we give our customers a big 20% discount on fabric as our birthday gift to you. All you have to do is have your name in our computer and come in within 6 days of your birthday (either before, on or after).  Your birthday discount is on your entire fabric purchase, but can only be given once each year.

Now unlike my wife, I am not so good at remembering things. So to help you remember this wonderful gift, we want to send you a reminder postcard in the mail.  This is where you come in. We need your address and birthday. Next time you come into the shop, be sure to have the staff update your profile to include your correct address and birth date. Optionally, you can send us an email using our Contact Us page with the details and I'll be happy to update your profile. Remember to give me your name as well because your clever email addresses don't always translate into your name (right avidQuilter@gmail.com?). Oh, and don't send me your birth year (I'm really not interested - I've been married for 32 years).

As a bonus, each month we will be drawing one name from all of our customers (with birthdays) and sending them a $25 gift certificate. The sooner we have your information, the better the odds of you winning!

Happy anniversary to us and happy birthday to you and thanks for being loyal Cotton & Chocolate customers!
