There is something magical about traveling through America’s Heartland. Whether is is the crisp country air or the rolling farmland. The journey is as good as the final destination. Iowa and Missouri are home to some of the finest quilt stores available such as the Missouri Star Quilt Company as well as Top Ten Quilt stores as listed in the Quilt Sampler. Add museums, towns filled with history and shopping for antiques in cozy downtowns that smack of yesteryear.  This results in a  combination that can’t go wrong!

In tribute to the generations of Amish threshers who band together each harvest season to cut and thresh, thus separating the grain from the chaff, each other’s crops in friendship, mutual aid and neighborliness)at an Amish home.
