Quilt Shop Tour: Crazy to Quilt

Remember when I had a girls weekend and we traveled to see the play Dirty Dancing?  Well on our way there we stopped at a quilt shop, Crazy to Quilt in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

This ABC quilt was one of the first things we saw.


The shop has LOTS of patterns and lots of books.


They have so many samples, there are even samples on the ceiling.  I liked this simple quilt.


I’m a softy for wool projects.


What a fun butterfly quilt!


I have some leftovers at my house of these striped prints…I love them.  I have a project in mind for them but haven’t gotten to it yet.  I need to remember they have them in case I need more of them if I ever get to that project.


I liked this simple quilt.


Connie was checking out the batiks.  I think she’s working on selecting fabrics for Bonnie Hunter’s Mystery quilt coming up.


This quilt was kind of fun.


Of course, this was likely my favorite quilt in the whole store…a Country Threads quilt!!  …of course.


…and look who was around the corner…Kelli!  I wonder what she is shopping for.


The shop carries Pfaff machines.


This gray quilt caught my eye.

Check out this block of the month quilt they are doing.


There was SO much to see and we didn’t have a lot of time to look.


While Connie, Kelli and Jody were shopping, I was snapping pictures.



The shop has a little “baby” area with baby fabrics.



There is a mix of all fabrics in the shop including some Civil War reproduction prints.


There is a wool project section too.


Check out these cute advent Christmas stockings.  I have to admit, they were tempting…but I hate decorating so was able to pass them by.



I got done snapping pictures and walked back to see what the others were up to.  There are Kelli and Connie….still hunting for mystery fabric.

I ended up grabbing some mystery fabrics to suppliment what I already have here.  You’re going to have to wait to see what I bought.  I’ll show you in an upcoming stash report….I am SUPER happy with what I found!

I use a system when I do quilt shop tours.  I do a 1-5 rating….five being the best-I’m going to be stingy with my fives.  This is just my impression on the day I visited and took pictures.
Warm and Friendly:  4  It was busy this day with LOTS of customers.  We weren’t greeted.  I didn’t mind.
Selection of Goods:  5
Neat and Organized: 5
Parking:  5
Cozy and Cute: 5
Curb Appeal: 3

A blog reader asked me to add another category of Curb Appeal.  I thought it was a great idea so I added it to this post and will keep using it.  THANKS for the suggestion.

This is a nice shop that I will continue to stop at when I am coming through Cedar Falls.

    Our quilt, Devil’s Claw, looked almost out of place with all those fun bright quilts. I’ve never been to this shop but now I will make a point of getting there – thanks, Jo! And how’s your shoulder?
