on the edge of Texas - a quilt store!

Right here... on the very edge of Texas... Terlingua, Texas to be exact... there sits a tiny quilt store.  Quilts, Etc. by Marguerite.

Marguerite runs the store and she represents about a dozen quilters from the area. Quilts of all kinds for sale inside. Customers from near and far stop by occasionally...  a few travelers from nearby Big Bend National Park come by... and some quilters have ventured here even from Australia when they came to Texas for the International Quilt Festival in Houston and then over to Big Bend. Hey, once you're in Texas, what's another 650 miles, anyway?


My homing device for quilts stores is still intact... even on the edge of Texas.

And its good to know that there are quilters everywhere and nice ladies like Marguerite keeping our art alive.

  1. What part of Texas is this in? I was born in Uvalde, on the west side of Texas. Now live in Washington state, but go back now and then.....more then than now, unfortunately......and would like to visit as many quilt stores as I can!

  3. Hi Bette. This little store is in Terlingua, not far from entrance to Big Bend National Park and near Lajitas - ~15 miles to the border with Mexico. Another cool place in Texas to visit is LaGrange which has the quilt museum and new quilt store next door.
