JUNE 21 through SEPTEMBER 3!

This year our Row by Row is the 27” x 12” row and named “Twin Pops”. Being located here in Rockford on this beautiful farm property makes us reminiscent of family & community gatherings of our youth and the special treat of “Twin Pops”. This simple row is constructed using easy traditional piecing techniques. Incorporate it into your Row by Row Quilt as a “treat” element to your “Taste the Experience” or even display it at your summer gatherings as a runner!


Starting June 21 be sure to stop in to receive your free pattern for “Twin Pops” or even better purchase a kit & taste the experience of a Twin Pop.




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!
