Postings and ponderings of a quilting and knitting addict!

The PERFECT stripe fabric to go on Jeremy’s quilt!  It is a smidge darker than what it appears in the photo, but it looks great with the shirt fabrics.

WHERE did I find this, you might ask?  At Mama’s Quilt Shop in Independence, LA (very close to Hammond, LA).  And of course I can’t buy just one fabric when I have traveled that far, so these other things wanted to come home with me, too.


Patterns:  I almost NEVER buy patterns, but she had a great sale on lots of them, and at half-price, I found several that I needed.  I might keep them, or I might use them as gifts…. we shall see.


And she ALWAYS has great fabric in the sale room at 50% off… my kind of price!  The stripe is for quilt bindings.  I LOVE a striped quilt binding cut on the bias, so when I find a good fabric on sale I get some.  The gold check was FREE!  Yes, you heard right…FREE FABRIC!  I completed all the punches on a fabric shoppers card from her shop and got to choose a FREE yard of fabric!!  You just can’t beat that!!

SO, if you are ever in southwest MS or southeast LA you MUST go hunt Mama up!!  A GPS would be helpful to find it, but you can just call the shop and they will give you good directions on how to find them.




  1. I have a similar fabric (looks like pillow ticking stripes) on the back of a quilt. It was hard to find, but I knew it would be perfect for a Civil War reproduction quilt. I LOVE it.

  2. That fabric will be perfect on Jeremy's quilt. You got so many cute patterns...which one are go going to use first?


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
