Island Quilter

An island quilt shop offers unusual supplies for locals and travelers alike.

Shades of Fall Color Option


While the original quilt is reminiscent of fall, quilt tester Laura Boehnke's interpretation could be called Shades of Spring. To play up her spring theme, Laura showcased fussy-cut flowers in the 5 -1/2" squares. The bow-tie units even resemble tulips when made in pastel purple and blue. Her fabrics are from the Cape Cod collection by Fabri-Quilt.

Meet the Staff

Work of Art


Both Anja Shive Moritz and Paul Robinson were carpenters before opening their quilt shop. Their strong design skills are reflected in beautiful woodworking and unusual shelves found in the shop. The open floor plan mimics art stores, allowing customers to view hanging pieces, such as Harvest Star by Maggie Ball of Dragonfly Quilts.

Ball of Creativity


Before Island Quilter, locals had to travel off the island for quilting supplies. Now residents can find fabrics, yarn, thread, and notions locally.

Fun Finds


Island Quilter has the largest selection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics in the Northwest. These purses show off Kaffe's bold prints and give customers ideas on how to use his fabrics.

Shades of Fall


The Island Quilter staff designed Shades of Fall for Quilt Sampler® Fall/Winter 2011 magazine.

Machine-Quilting Designs


Mimi Tremoulet machine-quilted a leaf motif in each batik 5-1/2" square in Shades of Fall, continuing the design into adjacent units with free-motion tendrils, leaves, and swirls.
