National Quilting Day
Tomorrow, March 17, 2018 isn't just St. Patrick's Day; it's also National Quilting Day!
I decided to wander down into the dungeon here at the shop to see what my favorite machine quilter, Ramona Sorensen (she has made friends with the dragon lurking there), has been quilting on the Gammill long-arm. This darling little Easter quilt was sewn up lickety-split by Chris Chamberlain and handed over to Ramona for some free-motion, edge-to-edge quilting. She calls this design "wonky flowers." It's perfect for a playful spring quilt! You'll have to stop by to see how Chris worked some pink ric-rac into the binding. It's an adorable detail that is easy to add in for a bit of whimsy. The fabric featured in this 60" x 69" quilt is Spring Bunny Fun by, Stacy Iset Hsu for Moda. We have kits and yardage! You might recognize this fabric collection from these cute spring bunny dolls. A 1 yard panel includes instructions, mama & papa bunny
and an apron full of baby bunnies!

Make a Cake
By now you have probably seen the Cake Mix Recipes. You've likely seen patterns and quilts that use them, but have you tried them yet? Have you seen how they simplify precise piecing? Cake Mix recipes by Moda work with Layer Cake 10" Precuts. By layering precut fabric squares with a Cake Mix Recipe paper, you can simply stitch along the printed lines, cut as indicated and tear the paper away to create perfectly accurate quilt blocks! Emily Herrick made this Gingerbread Quilt using Cake Mix Recipe 1 and enjoyed the method so much that she is offering to teach a class!

Classic Storybook Charm
It's a story we all grew up with; the tale of a girl in a red hooded cape on a journey though the woods to visit her grandmother. "Whistler Studios brings this fairytale to life with their new fabric collection, Little Red Riding Hood." Drawing on 1930s inspiration, this darling collection features a main print of little Red encountering the wolf, a tossed basket print, tiny gingham, apples, flowers and a word print of well-known quotes from the tale. Clink the link below to view each fabric up close as well as find free project downloads on Windham's website (I think I have to make To Grandmother's House!) then make your own journey to visit us at Corn Wagon (wolf-free guaranteed) and create your own quilt story!
