Virtual Shop Hop: The Cotton Cabin, Dubuque, Iowa
If you’re looking for a weekend getaway that includes a trip to a quilt, shop then consider visiting The Cotton Cabin in Dubuque, Iowa.
Dubuque is a lovely town on the Mississippi River with a vibrant Main Street where you’ll find local restaurants, coffee shops, a knitting shop and The Cotton Cabin Quilt Shop.
The historic main street shop is with more than 2,000 bolts of fabric to fit most tastes. You’ll find country fabrics, reproduction prints.
There also is an ample supply of homespuns, which is fitting for a quilt shop in the Midwest.
But you can also find bright modern prints, like the one used to make this shop sample. I love the quilting on this piece, I wish my own free motion quilting was this steady.
I was also quite impressed with the children’s fabric section. Most of the quilt shops I visit only have small areas dedicated to juvenile prints, which can make it difficult to find the fabric you want when it is time to make a new crib quilt. But The Cotton Cabin has an entire section dedicated to fun prints kids would love.
The Cotton Cabin is located at 1075 Main St., Dubuque, Iowa.
