In the northern suburbs of Texas is a small area known as Old Spring and on one corner, in an old red schoolhouse sits Cupcake Quilts. In mid-November I was lucky enough to spend two days teaching Cuddle quilt workshops there. I’d just been in Houston a week before for Quilt Market and Quilt Festival, but this was a totally different experience. The shop is set in a shopping area with a variety of old homes converted into shops: bath soaps, candles, antiques, leather furnishings, Dutch candies and home goods, Texas memorabilia, CBD oils and more. A friend had recommended that I check it out while I was there, neither of us knowing that I’d be teaching smack in the middle of it.
Cupcakes Quilts has two locations: Old Spring is their original location, the second being down the road in Humble. I didn’t get a chance to visit, but I’m sure it’s just as lovely. The Old Spring location is an old building,As you wander between rooms, you’ll find all sorts of fabrics, precuts, kits, patterns and a nice selection of Cuddle, as well.
I picked up a variety of quilting cottons, both from the clearance and the main floor, with no particular project in mind. I’m just a sucker for cowboys and nursery rhyme prints.
