Based in Calgary, Canada, Castilleja Cotton is a family business with Diane’s sister, Colleen Kennedy, contributing many of the designs and Diane’s husband, Don McGregor, contributing photographs and some of his own designs. All of quilts are made using a regular sewing machine. They do all of their own designs and currently have over 500 quilt patterns.
“Castilleja (ka_steel_ya) is the Latin name for the Indian Paintbrush flower. These flowers are found in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and bloom in late July and August. The color of these flowers varies from a greenish white, to red, fuchsia and magenta. The name Castilleja reflects the combination of colors and fabrics in our work.
Castilleja Cotton has been in business since 1993. We have created many one of kind designs for our quilt patterns and fabric art. We produce quilt patterns and fabric art (small wall quilts), larger wall quilts and other quilted items. We sell our quilt patterns to quilt shops and our small quilts to selected gift stores.”
