A Quilt to Crow About

We’ve got a quilt to crow about. We liked it so much that we put it on the cover of our fall catalog. Cheryl, our amazing buyer, has a knack for knowing just what quilts our Keepsake Quilting customers will love. She’s been choosing our products for years and deciding the one quilt that will…

David Taylor Brings His Applique Master Class to Keepsake Quilting

What a delight to have a former Keepsake Quilting challenge winner teaching at the shop.
