Hand-dyed Fabrics for Quilters

Welcome to Quilting Colors the Spanish store for hand-dyed fabrics for quilters. I use the best fabrics in the world, imported and the hand dyes are locally made from beginning to end. The fabrics are pre-laundered and ready for use. I use Kaufman Pimatex Cotton or Kona and ship worldwide.


I produce different values and colors, perfect to complete your color studies project, modern quilt or any project with subtle color variations. I am passionate about color, just like you!



Special Offer:

I have a special promotion just for Quilting Gallery readers over this weekend. Enjoy a 10% off coupon for my hand-dyed fabrics by using the coupon code Pets at checkout. Offer expires August 19th, 2013.

If you are from Spain, I can quilt for you with my long arm. Hurry up the special quilting promotion ends this summer. And if you speak Spanish, subscribe to my Newsletter. In a couple of days, you will receive “La última guía del quilting” for free. It’s a useful guide with 7 tips for a quilter in the sewing room.

Last but not least, keep in touch with me on Facebook, I love to hear from you.
