Welcome to Quiltessential Co. Inc!

As an extension of Ingrid Machtemes’ passion for quilting, Quiltessential Co.Inc. has grown to serve the quilting needs of St. Albert, Sturgeon County, Parkland County, the greater Edmonton area, and points beyond. Quiltessential Co.’s knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff seek to inspire, teach, encourage and assist quilters to appreciate and enjoy the art of quilting. Available in person, by phone and through email, we hope to provide you with the patterns, kits, books, materials, tools, and supplies you need to get as much pleasure from quilting as we do. So whether you want to stop by to drool over the latest fabric, seek advice on color coordination, or just talk quilting, call or stop by. We would love to help you succeed! We also do long arm quilting on our Gammill machines upstairs. 


We know that many of you are very eager to get back to resuming regular Quiltessential Co store shopping!

Thanks for the review!
"To Ingrid and her amazing staff who went above and beyond to help quilters and crafters keep their skills alive. You found unique ways to pivot and give everyone the opportunity to keep doing what they love to do. You were always available to help a new quilter like myself get projects done and provide great advice. Although you could not initially keep your doors open, the drive through for pick up and mail out option was invaluable"

Windy Days by Tilda
Hold on to your hat, Windy Days are a-coming! Inspired by the windy days of fall, when leaves twirl while the wind catches your umbrella and blows your hat off. The figurative Windy Walks design in four color-ways are fun fabrics to use for backing, letting the quilt’s reverse tell the story. This season’s flowers are loosely inspired by Indian block prints, which go well with the look. All the designs have names pertaining to wind, and the Aella blenders in seven colors are useful and easy to blend with the rest of the collection.
100% cotton 
44"/45" wide. Free patterns-click here.
