Shop Tour: The Picket Fence

On Friday Kelli and I ventured out to Prairie du Chein, Wisconsin.  It’s just over an hour drive for me.  They have an Aldi’s there and Kelli heard they had gluten free grocery products so she wanted to check it out.  I suggested a trip to the quilt shop in town too….The Picket Fence.  It’s a cute shop and I’ve been a couple times.


I love the way they display fabric.  Each fabric line is displayed together and showcased so nicely.  Kelli and I do a lot with Moda so we both found ourselves saying shucks…I love that line.  Why didn’t we make something with that line??  Above is Plum Street….we said that about that one.



We both loved the display as we walked in the door….the little farm animal aprons totally caught my eye.


The very front of the shop has sweet treats…tempting.



Kelli found herself stopped off and looking at embroidery patterns.


Me…I found myself oogling this fabric.


Then Kelli got stuck at the yarn section too.


…and there was yet another fabric line we should have made something with…..

We had LOTS of fun and the gal who was working was so sweet and friendly.  We’ll be back for sure.

Typically when I write a blog post with quilt shop tours someone asks me about something in the pictures….You can contact the shop here through their Facebook page with any questions.

We would definitely recommend a trip to visit them.

    My friends and I do a quilt retreat in DeSoto and make it a ritual of going to the Picket Fence every year. It truly is a great store. We always find treasures during our trip. By the way, are there any quilt stores in Iowa that are relatively close to DeSoto? I was going to do some research on it but you’d know better than anyone. TIA.


    1. Love the Picket Fence! There is another quilt shop in PDC , Front Porch Quilts. Left side of the main Highway from Desoto before the roundabout going to Pickett Fence. Open Weds-Sun. Has cute stuff too.

  2. I love the Plum Sweet line. Getting ready to start a Dear Jane Quilt and that line is one of several that I am going to use in it.
