  • Red Fabric Item E, should be 2 ½ “ x 5 “ (not 1 ¼ “ x 5 “)
  • Background Fabric Item G, should be a 3 “ square (not a 3 ½ “ square)

All patterns distributed after July 13 have been corrected. Sorry for any inconvenience. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Row by Row Experience
June 21 through September 6!

With this year’s theme of “Home Sweet Home”, how could we create a Row with anything but our signature barn element!

After all the barn is “Home Sweet Home” for many!

Each barn is accented in the Barn door and loft window with a quilt block (3” and 2” finished sizes).

Get our free pattern for this Row!

 Kits for the Row are available and an optional backing kit is also available if you want to make the table runner.

Be sure to get our fabric license plate

for your collection too.

Complete a Quilt using at least 8 different rows from 8 different participating Shops and be the first to bring it into a participating Shop to win a stack of 25 Fat Quarters! Completed means pieced, quilted, bound, & labeled. If the Quilt design includes the row from the Shop you win a bonus prize!

Quilter’s General Store was founded in 1997 and is located in a stately 1875 farm house. The 2500 square foot farm house is decorated in a traditional country style, utilizing many primitive and rustic items that add to the charm of the shop. QGS features approximately 2000 bolts of fabric which include a selection of civil war reproduction fabrics, batiks, and hand dyed wools.
On the second floor you will find our children’s room with baby
and juvenile fabrics, and many brights to blend with the children's fabrics.
We have a large classroom in our lower level for our full slate of classes and clubs. Many quilt and wool samples are displayed and kitted to inspire you. The entire staff at QGS is available to assist you in fabric selection or on your particular project.

Quilter’s General Store is truly a quilter’s destination for supplies, fabric, and inspiration.
We can’t wait to see all of you down on the farm!
