Lone Star House of Quilts
Endearing 19th-century reproduction prints and talented teachers connect quilters past and present at Lone Star House of Quilts in Arlington, Texas.
Under 150-year-old magnolia trees in the historical Oak Hill neighborhood of Arlington, Texas, you’ll find Lone Star House of Quilts in a 1911 white bungalow on West Abram Street.
Just inside the front door, a mantel bedecked in patterns greets shoppers. Hanging from clothespins are versions of Blind Man’s Fancy, a block of the month from History Repeated by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle.
