Welcome to artistic quilts with colors
Our mission is to spread the love of unique bold high quality Freespirit fabric designs and Aurifil Italian thread in Canada, as well as to maintain and encourage the social aspect of quilting.
We do this by carrying the variety of fabrics by well known designers such as Kaffe Fassett Collective, Tim Holtz, Tula Pink and others, as well as providing quilt kits, sewing lessons, tips and tricks on how to create stunning and artistic life-long memories while maintaining Artistic Quilts with Colors Social Club page where we organize sewing social times, virtual and in-person quilting classes and by-annual quilting retreats.
We ship from Trenton, Ontario and offer in-store shopping as well
Aurifil 50wt is slightly thicker than Aurifil 80wt thread and, although it's great for free motion quilting with it on home sewing machine… it's is absolutely perfect for Machine Piecing.
