Bringing a touch of charm to your home through hand-pieced quilts and a touch of creativity to your quilt tops through longarm quilting services.

Tell us about your business.

Cotton Berry Quilts is a mother/daughter quilt shop dedicated to creating aesthetically charming quilts from our home to yours. Quilting has been a part of our lives for quite some time now and we just love it. For us, a quilt shop is like a candy store with delicious fabrics lined up and ready to be cut up into little pieces for the assembly of a memorable family heirloom, which will warm the heart of someone special on a chilly day. All of our quilts are pieced by us and then quilted on our APQS longarm quilt machine. A good portion of our business is also dedicated to solely longarm quilting services for customer quilt tops. We believe this is one of many ways to add professional artistry and a touch of character to each quilt. Our bindings are machine stitched to the front and then finished to the back by hand. The last stitch on each quilt marks the celebration of a finished masterpiece ready to be loved by its new owner.

What makes your business stand out?

Excellence in artistry and quality of craftsmanship is of great significance to our business. We believe that God created the universe with unequaled skill and intelligent design. As bearers of His image, we possess the duty to reflect his character through the gifts and talents that He has so richly bestowed on every individual. Our business is meant to reflect His standards through professionalism in our craft.

What's the best business advice you've received?

1) Work hard, 2) Work efficiently, 3) Work toward repeatable income, and 4) Trust in the Lord for direction and provisions
