Thimble Cottage Village

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit a couple of quilt shops in Rapid City.  One was Thimble Cottage Village owned by Pearl Louise Krush of Pearl Louise Designs.  It was a fabulous shop.  Lots of fun and inspiring models.  I thought I would take you on a little tour.  The shop is in a house with lots of rooms.  Each one is decorated differently.

Baby room....these chenille quilts are adorable!

Snowmen are sooo abundant here.

Lots of wool mats.

The Christmas room!

Acorns everywhere.....

The wool mats are really cute.

This is the vew as you walk in the front door.

Beautiful redwork!

Days of the week towels....

As you come in the front door to the left, this is what you see.

Looking up from the front door.

Most of the patterns were by Pearl Louise Designs….so seeing all the models from one designer was different.  I really liked it.  Kinda like being at a booth at quilt market, but on a bigger scale.  She has such a wide variety of patterns, you can most certainly find something you would like.  Our shop has carried some of them over the years and I am hoping to get a few more.  Maybe try a trunk show.  The photos on any quilt pattern never does them justice, so seeing them all in person made me want them all.  Pearl also designs fabric, so it was great to see lots of models using it as well. 

If you every get the desire to visit Mt. Rushmore, (or the Zubers)  be sure to make a stop there.  It is worth the trip.  I do remember visiting this shop in 2002 when we came out for a family reunion.  Dan dropped me off while he went to get gas with the kids……..he ended up leaving Levi at the gas station and had to go back for him.  Needless to say, he doesn’t like the idea of stopping at quilt shops on a family trip.  You never know what will happen.

Funny thing about this post is that I have been trying to catch up with Roseann of Rosebud’s Cottage in Minnesota.  She has been traveling some .  Guess where she was last week?  Check out her post from March 11 for more photos of this great shop, and then check out her shop.  We have visited it during market and it is worth the trip as well.  Small world!!

I hope you enjoyed your tour of the quilt shop.  Let me know what you think.

Until next time,
