I met a friend there today for lunch and man it was so crowded had to wait for a table. We looked around their store and I saw beaituful quilt sets - quilts + shams for $199.00. I thought that was a good price and you could tell they are homemade too. That was for a queen size. I wonder where they get these.

Can't imagine a quilt being home made, selling so cheap. I guess you never know where you might find a good buy!

They do have pretty quilts there. I like looking at the pattern of the quilts to get ideas.

They are all Donna Sharp quilts. http://www.donnasharp.com/Dot_page.asp?Dotid=94
They are machine pieced and assembled in a Kentucky factory and are then shipped to China where they are hand quilted. That is what keeps the price down and still permits them to be called "handcrafted".

Maybe I have not seen the right quilts at Cracker Barrel, but as a hand quilter, have you looked closely at the stitches in these quilts. They are too big and too far apart. I was asked to leave a shop in Branson where they sold "handcrafted quilts", because I said they were not worth $99.00

They are handquilted-- in a poverty country, and the stitches are running stitches not hand quilted stitches. I can do a king size quilt with running stitches in no time. I think I know the shop in Branson, Dix. You are right, the quilts there are an embarrassment to a quilter. There is one in Hot Springs AR that has machine quilted quilts made in some forsaken country.
