Cotton Fields Quilt Shop

Quilt shop near Big Mill Bed and Breakfast
As you can see, quilters are quite resourceful!
(Notice the chain snake and plastic bag clips for decoration)

What a wonderful surprise to be driving through the countryside in Beaufort County, North Carolina, and right in the middle of nowhere-up pops Cotton Fields Quilt Shop.

Cotton Fields is in a double wide trailer – but don't think for a minute it isn't wonderful. It is! You enter into a palatte of color, rows and rows of cotton fabrics. Time was when all smal towns in North Carolina had fabric stores, but no more. So this shop is paradise if you are a quilter.

Owner Lori Richardson teaches quilting classes and there are quilts in progress everywhere. Everything you need for your quilt is here. For those folks who need a little help, you can buy kits that Lori makes, some of her own design. Her blog Talk is Cheap Quilts has some great ideas … wonder how that name came to be???

If you are in eastern North Carolina, and you are a quilter, you must visit Cotton Fields. You can even order online. I am so glad to have found this treasure-just in time to buy the special needles and thread for our Wedding Ring Quilt at Big Miill B&B. We just put this patchwork into a quilting frame and hope all our guests will come and quilt-we will teach you!

    Thanks, Chloe!!!  The write-up and pictures are wonderful.
    No, we don't have room here to leave a quilt frame up for extended periods.  On Mondays and Fridays at 1 pm. we have drop in quilting groups where people bring whatever they are currently working on.
