Quilt Shops Of Buda Texas

 

B and B Quilting - Buda, TX

Every quilt shop needs its own identity and this one, owned by two sisters, is no different. But I was shocked by the response when I asked about what made this shop special. The response was, "Math!"

Buda

 

Every quilter must use it for figuring fabric needs for borders, bindings, etc., but not every quilter is comfortable with the calculations. B and B Quilting of Buda, TX says that helping quilters with math is one of their strengths. One of their customers also told me that she always goes to this shop if she needs to match a fabric. Their collection of "blenders" is extensive along with their specialties of 1800's and 1930's reproduction fabrics.

Their new modern stone building is kitty corner across from and behind the city complex. With lots of parking, this is an easy and pleasant facility for shopping. One customer told me that this is her "go to" shop because Cabela's is right around the corner for her husband. Several men then entered the shop. When I asked about it, a staff member quipped, "We're part Cheers. Here everyone knows your name."

From textured solids, to wools, and Block of the Month, quilters will find what they need here. They have discounts for retreats and plan a full slate of classes in 2019. They work with the Austin Area Quilt Guild and are a drop-off for Project Linus and pillow cases.

 

I bought some unusual and cute items here. One was a box of band-aids for quilters (now used often) and another was a miniature brass-colored barn quilt. And yes, I couldn’t resist the fabric – purchasing a fat quarter of an ocean theme that I had previously never seen.

Glossary

Block
The basic unit of a quilt top, usually square but can be rectangular or other shapes. Blocks can be pieced, appliqued or plain.
Fat Quarter
Pre-cut piece of fabric which is made by cutting a half yard in half again vertically. The piece is therefore approximately 18" x 22". This allows for cutting larger blocks than a standard quarter yard which is 9" x 44".
