Shop Tour: The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe

Just a few weeks ago I was at the “The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe” in Manchester, Iowa.  I thought I would take some pictures and share them with you.  They have a great section of Kansas Troubles goodies.

I thought this quilt was especially neat.

I had to give a little smile when I saw my cousin Gladie’s patterns displayed for sale.  She makes some really cute patterns.  She takes a design and them make it in small, medium and large size.  Keep in mind her “large” is still pretty small.

There were lots of cute fall looking goodies.

QuiltShop-5

This stitched design was a favorite of mine.

QuiltShop-6

If you are an Iowa college fan, they had these cute quilts on display along with patterns.

QuiltShop-7

I would have liked more time to check out this pinwheel book.  I just love pinwheels.

QuiltShop-8

Isn’t this tumbling block quilt cute??  I was told that the author of the book had recently taught at the shop.

Sadly I didn’t get more pictures taken.  I started chatting with the people in the shop and completely forgot I was taking pictures.  (It’s a hazard of my job.)

If you haven’t been to the quilt shop in Manchester, it’s one that you are sure to find some goodies at…and you’ll find a very happy welcome…something that I really appreciate.

    I loved your tour! I recently went to the shop hop in upper Iowa…hope to get to Manchester soon!

  2. thanks for the shop tour Jo! i see several books and quilts that look really yummy. .

    In the 4th photo down, isn’t that just the cutest pumpkin basket at the bottom left of the quilt?
    ALERT, ALERT! if there’s not a pattern for it already, i’ll bet someone in the shop could make a pattern, develop a class, and sell quite a few kits of that before October!

  3. I grew up in the Manchester area and visit that shop now and then when visiting my mother. Looks like I need to stop in again. The ABC 3-D book looks like it has interesting projects, maybe with some simplified math. Thanks for the shop tour :)

  4. Hi Jo,
    Do you know the name of that pattern above that is the 2nd one from the top of this page….green background with large background star and center flower. Where can I buy this?
    It does not appear that The Quiltmaker’s Shoppe has on line ordereing.
    Thanks, it just struck me.
