I need to apologize for the Newsletter finally being sent today. Once again the newsletter was lost on Monday upon completion. We lost all of our subscribers and newsletter archives too. Don't worry! Luckily our web host was able to get everything back, minus the newsletter. Unfortunately at this point, our web host has not been able to figure out what is causing this glitch. Hopefully we will have luck with this edition! Thank you for your patience!


Cortez Quilt Company and More will be out at the Quilt Show on August 24-25. Be sure to stop by our booth!



We revealed our Autumn/Halloween/Christmas fabrics and projects last Saturday at our Holiday Jamboree. Be sure to come by to pick out your favorites so that you can get busy creating your holiday decor and gifts!

Country Road, a new collection of Kansas Troubles, has also come out in these luscious flannels. These soft, feminine fabrics will make you think of snuggling by the fire while sipping your hot chocolate. Now is the time to get to creating our quilts with these flannels - cold weather will be here before we know it!

We also have this collection of flannels that just came in. The men in our lives would love to snuggle in their own quilt with their hot chocolate!

Midnight Spell is a delightful collection that would compliment any Halloween project you are brewing up. Home decor, trick or treat bags, pillowcases and more - the ideas really are limitless.Gold metallic accents really make this collection pop! The black kitties are very cute.

Judy whipped up this fun table runner out of the Midnight Spell fabric. We have this available as a kit!

Speaking of table runners . . . Friends and family will love to gather around your table with this project as your centerpiece. Included with this pattern are three projects: the table runner, pot holders and a 12" mini wall hanging. Sarah created our sample with an apple theme. You can make yours to feature a pumpkin pie, along with a pumpkin pot holder. MMM I can almost smell pie baking in the oven!

This is such a sweet Christmas wall hanging! Peppermint Reindeer features a mother reindeer giving her little one a peppermint kiss. We have kits available for your convenience!

All of the coordinating fabrics in this collection are bright and festive. The traditional red and green Christmas colors, featured in snowflakes, reindeer, peppermints and candy canes are sure to be a hit!

I just love snowmen! This collection will help to brighten your homes the entire winter.

Christmas Batiks... yes, please! Bright blue and purple hues will look spectacular with your Christmas decor.

This traditional and very elegant collection is stunning with the gold metallic accents.

The Four Hour Table Runner, a pattern designed by Virginia Robertson is stunning with this collection. We are offering this as a class on October 5th. (Customer's choice of fabric)
