Welcome to my home on the web...I hope you enjoy your visit!

My name is Sheila Grimes, and I'm located in Spring, Texas.  I am an instructor that was trained by Betty Cotton herself, and I offer classes throughout, but not limited to Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arkansas, and Louisiana. 

What is Cotton Theory?

Cotton Theory Quilting is a unique patented process of Quilt First Then Assemble. 

Welcome to the world of Cotton Theory Quilting where you will find three-dimensional seams, reversible binding and a whole new way to construct your quilt! 

Cotton Theory Quilts are unlike traditional quilts which are pieced together, layered with batting and then quilted.  All Cotton Theory  projects are quilted first, one segment at a time and then assembled using Betty Cotton's fold-and-finish procedures.  This method of quilting produces a reversible quilt with decorative stitching and optional machine embroidery.  

All work is done with a sewing machine and there is no need for any handwork.  During the assembly of a Cotton Theory project, you sew the raw edges of your quilt pieces together, leaving seam allowances that are folded on the outside of your quilt and then stitched in place using one of the Cotton Theory techniques.  This adds extra dimension to the surface. 

It's fast, fun, and completely unique.
