Welcome!

Welcome!

In Quilters de México® we aim to promote, encourage and develop the growth of Patchwork and Quilting in Mexico in an open, enthusiastic and honest way. We seek to train whoever’s interested, feature their works, and achieve national and international recognition for the creative Mexican hands.

Let’s go together!


Patchwork —
Patchwork is a type of needlework that consists of sewing together small pieces of fabric into blocks, which when put together with other blocks will form the final product called “quilt”.

Quilt —
Quilt is a type of needlework that consists of joining together a sandwich of fabric using ornamental stitches. The sanwdich is made of: a front layer (which can be made of patchwork), a middle layer (batting, felt or similar materials) and a back layer. The term “quilt” is also used to call the finished product, regardless of its size or utility.

From August 6 – 9 our collection ‘Mexican Sayings and Proverbs’ will be on display at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, United Kingdom. As part of the festival, on the 9th of August we will also be giving a talk on Mexican textiles, textures and colours.
