Quilt Shop & Quilt Designs

I decided to check out Mama's Log House Quilt Shop near Huntington. This is one of the closest quilt shops to me. There is also a quilt shop in Greenwood that I haven't been to yet. I should have gone to it yesterday because it was less than 20 miles from this one. But I wanted to get home.

It was such a beautiful sunny day that I thought the drive in the warm sunshine would do me good. I forgot to take my camera for pictures, but CJ has some pictures from her visit last month.

It was a great little shop and my husband and I were really surprised that there were 5 or 6 cars there when we arrived at about 11:00. The GPS took us on a scenic drive through back roads into the woods and around a beautiful, quiet lake and it felt like we out in the middle of nowhere. But we took a different road to Hwy 10 on the way back and it did not seem so far. My husband couldn't understand how they were so busy being so far out of town but decided that we were closer to civilization than he thought.

There were 3 ladies sitting in the back of the shop sewing. The owner and another lady were waiting on other customers and chatting with those sewing. They had a steady stream of people during the time we were there. My problem is that there are so many wonderful fabrics, books, and notions that I have a hard time making up my mind.

I purchased two patterns and some fat quarters.


I've been wanting to make this quilt since I first saw if on someone's blog. I have the pattern bookmarked but just never ordered it. It was the first thing I noticed when I walked in the door. They also had a quilt made and hanging on the wall in the shop.

They also had the "12 Days of Christmas" Quilt made and hanging on the wall. Both of these quilts are just beautiful.

I just love seeing the fabrics that are from the same fabric line an/or color line. I found a beautiful bundle of fat quarters and picked them up to see the price. They were $95 and my husband was shocked. But he also said, "This fabric is much better than the fabric available locally." I didn't get them, but I sure thought about it. Maybe next time.

Here are my purchases. Aren't these fabrics yummy?

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. Did you go there yesterday! I almost did, my husband and I drove over to Fort Smith to shop and look around and I almost said lets stop at Mama's on the way there and changed my mind as I know I will spending in Paducah - how funny we could have shopped next to each other and not known it :)

  2. Beautiful fabrics! I have to soak up their beauty before cutting into them. They need to feel a stage of welcome to my sewing room.

  3. Isn't that shop something? Way out in the boonies! I thought it was actually the closest shop to me, but I recently learned that there's a new shop (although pretty small) over in Pickle's Gap just outside of Conway. I'm not sure exactly where you're at, if that would be close to you or not.

    Did you happen to see the hand dye's at Mama's Log House? Absolutely gorgeous, and done locally.

  4. I hadn't heard that there was a shop over in Pickles Gap I will have to check and see if I can find it sometime. Love Mama's but I don't go often.
