Lavenderfest 2011: Quilt Junction

Quilt Junction Display at the Lavenderfest

There is a beautiful old train station in Waterford built in the 1800s. When I moved to Waterford, I checked it out and found it was converted to a quilt shop. Last year, the original owner sold Quilt Junction to a wonderful, passionate lady named Lana. I was ecstatic the store was staying. This is the place I raided for luscious cotton fabrics and prints. Lana’s eye for fabrics is wonderful. I am always awed by the fabric selection and I continue to buy fat quarters for my embroidery projects. There are varied palettes ranging from civil war prints, batiks, and yes, I spotted cupcakes as well! Now you know where I get the beautiful prints.

At Lavenderfest, I was able to see Lana again. She is one of the artisan vendors. Her display showcased stunning quilts from her students. Quilting is one of those pursuits I always admired. I hope to get into it one day and make a hand-stitched quilt.  I hope to make this a reality for next year. Quilt Junction draws in many quilters from the area and beyond. Classes are also offered for quilters as well as mini projects like making a purse/bag in an afternoon. For me, it’s a source of inspiration. I am very picky about choosing my fabrics for my projects and I often allow the fabric to tell me what the subject will be.  I am just lucky and thankful a great place like Quilt Junction exists it is in my own corner of the universe. As Lana can attest, I always leave with at least two fat quarters per visit.
