Great Quilt Store

Recently, I visited a quilt store I hadn’t been to in probably 10 years.  It is called New Pieces.  It used to be in Albany, but moved to Berkeley in 2008.  I was totally blown away by the quality of the fabrics in this store, especially as it relates to art quilting and “modern” quilting.  There are no Civil War prints or calicoes.  But there are a mind-dazzling array of batiks and Japanese-influenced designs, just to mention some of the highlights.  There are lots of other fabrics, but I don’t really know all the designer names.  I highly recommend this store for the serious quilter.  It is located at 766 Gilman in Berkeley.  It’s just a couple blocks off Highway 80 at the Gilman exit.
