Today both of my college girls were home so we ventured north to Cresco, Iowa, where we visited the quilt shop, Quilter’s Garden. Here’s a little shop tour for you!
The shop is small but still is filled with LOTS of samples.
They have a neat block of the month quilt that was offered in two different color ways. Here is the light version….
and here is the dark version.
I think if she has a block of the month for next year, I am going to seriously think about doing it.
The above quilt is a cute 30’s print quilt. Each of the inside squares of the blocks have a saying on them.
There is a lot of fabric considering how small the shop is.
In the next photo, the star quilt caught my eye….stars seem to be a favorite of mine.
And now a photo of what I went hunting for…..KONA Cottons!
Remember my big debate last week?…I was looking for ideas on a narrow border for this quilt. After reading all of your advice, I picked a color but, I’m not telling which one yet. You’ll have to come back and see whose advice I took… the yellow, the teal, the green, the purple, the pink or the white….You just might be surprised.
The last thing I saw in the quilt shop was this little candle mat.
After talking with the shop owner, I found out that my second cousin made and designed it. Apparently she has started designing patterns! I only see my cousin a couple times a year so this is a new development for me….I can’t wait to talk to her about it at our family gathering in August. Maybe I’ll talk her into donating a pattern and we’ll do a little give away…who doesn’t love a give away.
If you are ever in NE Iowa, take time to stop at Quilter’s Garden in Cresco. It’s one of the most friendly shops I have ever been to. If you want more information you can look it up on their Facebook page.
