Virtual Shop Hop: Mama’s Quilt Shop, Independence, La.
Mama’s Quilt Shop is tucked away on a scenic wooded acreage that is also home to the owner, her brother and, of course, mama. It’s a great shop to visit if you’re traveling on US-51 through Louisana. The shop is just a few minutes off the highway and makes a good rest stop.
The shop is named because the owner’s mother has a room full of fabric. Whenever a fellow quilter would admire a fabric in her quilt top and ask where she got it, she would always answer, “Mama’s.” So when it came time to open a quilt shop, the name was an easy one to pick out.
For being located in such a rural area, Mama’s Quilt Shop has an impressive selection of fabrics. There is a large selection of batiks, pre-cuts and coordinating fabrics, 1930s reproduction, children’s prints and more. You name it, they’ve got it.
There’s also a table filled with fat quarters separated by color for those of us who just like collecting fabric, or just need a little bit of this or that to finish something.
Mama’s Quilt Shop also has wall full of quilt kits for those of you who like to create quilts that look like the pattern and a large classroom space.
Mama’s Quilt Shop is located at 15111 Catfish Farm Rd., Independence, LA. Click here to visit their website for more information.
