Thimbleberries Fabric

Thimbleberries fabric has the traditional look that we try to represent in our store. Since we have participated in Thimbleberries Club block of the month program several times after opening in 2002, we have an abundance of Thimbleberries fabric by RJR. We have many other RJR fabric lines also. We try to always have the complete RJR Cotton Supreme Solids in stock. These quality RJR solid color fabrics have a subtle gradation of tones from one color group to the next to provide you with the exact color you’ve been searching for.

Civil War Reproduction Fabrics and 30s Reproduction Fabrics

With hundreds of bolts of 30s reproduction fabrics, we might have that special one you have been hunting. Vickey chooses her favorite 30s fabrics from Marcus Brothers, Robert Kaufman, RJR, and Maywood Studio. If you are looking for Civil War era reproduction fabrics, you will find over a hundred bolts in our Civil War reproduction fabric section. Since reproduction fabrics are Vickey’s “first love” in the quilting arena, we continually add more and more for you to choose from.

Wild and Wooly Western Fabrics

Jim Shore cat/Moda FabricsWestern fabrics are very popular in our East Texas town and beyond. Jennifer has a very serious addiction to western fabrics and has informed all of the fabric representatives to let her know when a new western fabric line is available! We have hundreds of bolts of western fabrics by the following companies combined: Moda, RJR, Michael Miller, Alexander Henry, Maywood Studio, Robert Kaufman, Marcus Brothers, P&B Textiles, Timeless Treasures, Shamash & Sons and Avlyn. We have used some of the best western fabrics to make several shop samples, with kits of the fabric, to feature our timeless western fabrics. We have patterns and quilting stencils designed to showcase your western fabrics and western themed quilts.

Versatile Moda Fabrics

Moda fabrics are well represented at Quilt Mercantile. You will find over 1,200 bolts from Moda—western, fall, bright, children, outdoor, and so much more. Moda fabrics cover all the bases. Our large selection of the wide fabric used for quilt backings are a great value and make backing a quilt trouble free. We carry some of the 54” and 108” wide backings by Moda and other manufacturers. We have used Moda fabric in several of our block of the month projects.

Block of the Month

To see our current block of the month projects go to the Block of the Month section in the shopping area. Fabrics for each of our Block of the Month projects are carefully chosen. We use only top quality fabrics. We do not recommend washing the fabric in the monthly kits since you are working with such small pieces. We typically will have three to four blocks of the month going at all times. The Quilt Mercantile fabric kits will follow the designer project as closely as possible. If not, we will post a picture of our sample.
