Country Threads Part Two

Yesterday I showed you some photos from my favorite quilt shop, Country Threads in Garner, Iowa.  Today I am showing some more.

Country Threads is made up of two buildings.  I liked yesterday’s building but the one I am showing today is my favorite as it is FILLED to the brim with Civil War reproduction fabrics AND samples.  Here’s a taste….


Country Threads can put together colors like no other shop I know of….


Here is a wonderful raw edge appliqué quilt…Wagon Wheels.  I bought the wedge to make it some time ago, but haven’t gotten to it.


I love this basket quilt and typically, I am not a basket quilt gal.


Here’s a blue quilt I LOVE….I love the scalloped borders.

I wish I had joined their Civil War Reproduction Club last year.  If I had, these quilts would all be in my stash.  They were last year’s projects for the club.



Some of the photos seem a bit off kilter.  It’s because they hang quilts on the ceiling too.  Trust me, it’s not easy to take a photo of a quilt on the ceiling!


Next up, some quilts that feature my favorite color….RED!


Another….Yes, another basket quilt.

A red quilt AND stars….how did I resist?


They have a whole section of Lori Smith goodies.  I love the way they put together her patterns!


And another section of her framed quilts…..


and the last photo…a quilt pattern I bought when I visited last time but wanted a photo of…

I SO love Country Threads….You probably already figured that out.  The shop is fabulous and the gals are super friendly.  It’s worth a visit no matter how far you live from Garner, Iowa.    Check yesterday’s post for a little something giveaway…..

  3. Thanks for the insight into Country Threads. It is one place that I have wanted to visit for forever, it seems like. I’m only two states away but haven’t made it there yet. Your pics will hold me over for a while longer. Looks like you must have had a great time!

  4. Wow, it’s a shame I live sew far away… my knees are weak just looking from here(NZ) Maybe it’s just as well, I don’t think my credit card would stand the pressure either!
