Welcome to Common Threads Quilting. Our first and foremost love is reproduction fabrics. The American Civil War era is our prime focus, and we carry a number of kits and Block of the Month programs.
If you're looking for March's bunny, you can find him here.

Regarding First Ladies patterns
When we sent out shop kit notebooks for the First Ladies block of the month to shops, each of those notebooks included a set of patterns for the quilt so that the shop could make their sample. However, those shop patterns were not to be copied and handed out to customers. The shops were all required to purchase patterns at wholesale to sell to their customers in their block of the month. If you are doing the First Ladies block of the month, and your pattern has "For Shop Use Only" watermarked across the pages, you have received a stolen pattern. No shop was ever given permission to copy their shop pattern to give to a customer. If you have received one of these patterns, please contact us immediately.
Cousin's Walk - This block of the month is based on an antique quilt owned by Quilted Crow Girls. It will begin in March and run for 14 months. The finished quilt measures approximately 100" x 116", so it's a big quilt! We will be matching the original colors as closely as possible. To sign up for this quilt, click here.
Bertie's Year Wall Hangings
Bertie's Year Wall Hangings - Bertie's Year is a darling series of Bertie Bird in different poses each month of the year. It is done in Woolies Flannel rather than cotton. The price includes the pattern and the fabric for the block, the binding and the backing as well as the button pack. It does not include the embroidery floss. This is a special program, and will work a little different than most of our programs. You can sign up for this program as a block of the month, and be guaranteed to receive all 12 months of Bertie's Year. You also have the option of simply purchasing the months you particularly like. If you choose to purchase just certain specific months, please list the months you want to purchase in the notes section of your order. The program will begin in February and run for 12 months.
