Cool Cottons

Scott & I travelled up to Vancouver, WA to visit my brother & his family. While there, we went down to Portland to hang out. One place that I really wanted to go to was a fabric store called Cool Cottons. It was absolutely AMAZING - it had all of the fabrics that I love & can never find in any stores (except online ones). I seriously wanted to buy the entire store, or move to Oregon or Washington, so I could be closer to it:
The store was in an old house - so charming:
Look at all the beautiful fabrics - they had different color schemes in different rooms of the house:
The fabrics I got away with - (it's not the greatest picture since it was taken with my phone)
Now I just need to settle on a quilt pattern (& finish my other quilts before I can start this one, a rule set down by Scott, which I quite agree with)
Fabrics by: Amy Butler, Alexander Henry, Heather Ross, Heather Bailey, Lizzy House, & more
I really wish a quilting store here would start carrying these awesome fabrics - if not, I may have to open my own quilt store - the ladies who own Cool Cottons even gave me their business card & told me they would help me get one started & get hooked up with fabric distributors:


  1. You are AMAZING! Love the fabrics and can't wait to see your finished product.

  2. Gorgeous fabrics! I am so excited for you and excited to see your next quilt. Also, I would love to come to your fabric shop one day. I have the same problem with quilting fabrics-just hard to find the good stuff at most craft stores. My friend just ordered a bunch of awesome fabrics from Etsy--I may have to go that route too, if I can't find a good store! Also, your Christmas quilt is awesome!

  3. That store is very cute! Kind of reminds me of the stores by the old cabin. definitely fun fabrics!

  4. GREAT store!! You should totally open up your own place!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabric you made off with, sooooo fabulous!!

  5. Wow, that looks like a place I could get lost in for awhile... and maybe spend a little too much. Soooo many good choices, how can you pick just a few, right?

  6. What an amazing store! So quaint. I would love to browse though without the kids and hubby!

  7. Oooh! I love it! I may be heading to UT and will be around the corner from Elaine's Quilt Block. Need anything to finish your projects?
