Welcome to Cotton & Chocolate Quilt Co.
Major League Quilting
Major League Quilting is all about recognizing beautiful quilts and all about fun! Each week beginning two contests will be played:
- Mondays our American League teams will compete
- Thursdays the National League teams will compete
Cotton & Chocolate's team is the Oakland B's in the American League and we are counting on your support. Game play will last for 3 days. During these 3 days you are encouraged to visit the page for each quilt, read about them, and make a decision on which one should advance to the next round. Your vote is very important! Our quilt is Penni's Stars & Stripes Forever and will be in it's first head to head play starting on next Monday, August 4th. Please register and vote for us!
At the end of the 3-day period the winner will be announced and will advance to the next round of play. Visit the MLQ webpage often to keep up with the progress. You will need to register your email address for two reasons:
- You can only vote once and our tabulation system will recognize email address and
- We will be sending out MLQ updates throughout the event that you won't want to miss.
Pumpkin Patch Lane
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.

In the last few emails I told you about this new quilt show in Palm Springs, brought to you by the Mancuso brothers. I realize I had the dates slightly wrong as this is just a Thursday to Saturday show. The show will run Thursday-Saturday, October 2-4, from 10 AM to 6 PM, and will be hosted at the Palm Springs Convention Center. For more information visit their quiltfest.com website.
Cotton & Chocolate is planning to sponsor a bus trip to this show on the Saturday, October 4th. The cost will be $50.00. Tickets are now available at Cotton & Chocolate
