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


If you have been in the store over the last few weeks, you might have seen a group of hard working girls in various stages of creating two quilts. Seven girls, ages 11-17, of the Cortez Junior Youth Spiritual and Empowerment Group completed the quilts you see in the photo above. None of the girls had ever used a sewing machine, let alone quilted. These generous girls donated their creations to the local Child Advocacy Center, logging in 50 hours of time. Kathy Sehnert, Carol Hitti, and Lorraine Neskahi were adult leaders for this group. These girls should be very proud of their hard work!



What could be more American than a nostalgic trip down Route 66? Gas stations, route maps, cars, trucks, campers and license plates are part of this retro-inspired collection. The colors are in a patriotic palette of red, white and blue.

Cork continues to be all the rage. This 100% cotton fabric is designed to look just like cork, and will work well as a blender or border on quilts, or can stand on its own for bags, home decor and more. Rich colors, with metallic accents. We will be getting more colors in as they become available.



Lone Star, or "Star" Quilts are very popular here at Cortez Quilt Company and More. Our customers are going to love this book!


We now have Lo-Lo Bars! Be sure to come pick out your favorite scent before they are gone!

"Anyone who works on a quilt, who devotes her time, energy, creativity, and passion to that art, learns to value the work of her hands. And as any quilter will tell you, a quilter's quilting friends are some of the dearest, most generous and most supportive people she knows."

-Jennifer Chiaverini
