Welcome to A Block Away Quilt Shop!

Hi!  We want to be the small business with a big heart.  Let us introduce ourselves; Barb has been quilting more than 25 years, and has a passion to share the art with others.  Ron, being equally talented, has supported Barb's passion by keeping her machines humming nicely, and wants to do the same for you.  With a goal to build community among quilters, together we plan to grow to not only meet your needs, but also to inspire you.
