Welcome to Prairie Quilt Studio!

A charming and vibrant haven for all quilting enthusiasts! Nestled in the heart of Iowa, this delightful quilt store is set to open its doors soon, inviting you to embark on a creative journey like no other.

Prairie Quilt Studio started as Modern Home Arts in 2015 as a long arm service provider in the basement of Dawn Gifford's home and with the help of Karen Fisher we grew to be busting at the seams!  We started construction of "the barn" in 2022 and plan to open in late fall of 2023.

Our new location, 5354 Hutton Drive, Urbana Iowa embraces the rich tradition of quilting while infusing it with modern aesthetics.  We will be offering a unique blend of timeless elegance and contemporary flair. The store's warm and inviting ambiance was designed to inspire and ignite your passion for this beloved textile art form.

Step inside and be greeted by a curated collection of high-quality fabrics sourced from a multitude of designers and artists. We have hand selected collections from many designers to bring the most beautiful selections from classic prints to trendy patterns.

In addition to its product offerings, Prairie Quilt Studio is dedicated to fostering a vibrant quilting community. The store will host regular workshops and classes, led by experienced instructors who are passionate about sharing their expertise. Whether you're interested in mastering a new quilting technique or joining a stitch-and-chat session with fellow enthusiasts, the studio offers a welcoming space for learning, collaboration, and friendship.

As the grand opening of Prairie Quilt Studio approaches, anticipation builds, and the quilting community is abuzz with excitement. Prepare to immerse yourself in a world of color, texture, and boundless creativity at this soon-to-be quilting haven, where every stitch tells a story and every quilt becomes a cherished masterpiece.

Can't Wait to See You!
