Alabama and Mississippi Quilt Shops


This weekend, I'm driving to Lafayette, Louisiana (my hometown) to spend a couple of days with my Dad. This is the first time in a very long time that I'll not have "my boys" with me. I'm thinking it would be fun to visit a shop or two on my long drive from Atlanta. I usually drive I85 to Montgomery, then Mobile, through Mississippi to Slidell, Baton Rouge then Lafayette, but will probably return the other way going through Meridian and Birmingham. Can anyone suggest a quilt shop that you have visited or know of that would make for a good break during my drive? I do plan on visiting Ginger's Needleworks in Lafayette while I'm there. It also looks like another quilt shop has opened in the last couple of years, too.

I took a trip to North Carolina a couple of months ago and contacted quilt guilds in the areas where I would be staying (googled the name of the town + quilt guild) and asked them for directions to their favorite shops. It worked out great and I got directions to some really nice quilt shops!

I live in Birmingham. We have only one quilt shop - Heart to Heart. It's off I20/59 in the Trussville area. Have fun shopping!
