Congratulations to everyone who participated in last weekend's quilt show. The talent demonstrated was simply amazing!

I have been here at the Cortez Quilt Company over four years now. In the past, I have always worked on Tuesdays, so never had many opportunities to attend the monthly guild meetings. Because of this, I have missed the show and tell, and have only seen the projects that customers have brought into the store to share. I was truly blown away, and very honored to be able to see the completed quilts and projects that were at the show. It is really fun to see how a piece of fabric can be turned into such a work of art.

Thank you for letting the Cortez Quilt Company and More be a small part of your artistic endeavors!  ~ Aimee



Your next project can shine like a diamond with this new collection, Shiny Objects. Beautiful designs with a sparkle! You will be ready for a night out on the town, or add an elegant touch to your home decor.



We now have in stock various sizes of the pressing mats. Made of 100% American wool, these mats will hold the heat of your iron. It is like pressing from both sides of your fabric at once. These are great for your pieced blocks, applique, or embroidered blocks. Furthermore, the heat does not transfer down into the surface below, allowing you to place this mat right next to your machine for convenience.
