Meet Tammy, another of our talented quilters! Plus, wrap up in a new quilt to ward off the autumn chill!
Last newsletter I took you on a stroll down into the basement of Corn Wagon Quilt Co. and introduced you to Ramona, one of our talented free-motion quilters here at the shop. If, per chance, you missed that email, you can always find our past newsletters on our website under the "Newsletter" heading. This week I would like to introduce you to Tammy Menlove. Tammy was born in California and raised here in Utah. Locals may recognize her as a daughter of Judge Sam. She fell in love with sewing in her 4H group at age 10 and was sewing her own clothes by the time she was in the 6th grade! While attending BYU and receiving a degree in elementary education, she fell in love with the man who would become her husband. Together they have raised seven children and are going on fourteen grandchildren. Tammy acquired her own long-arm quilting machine in 2005 and recently joined the ranks here at the shop where she specializes in free-motion edge to edge designs, one of her favorite being feathers. She loves the opportunity to try new designs. Her smile says it all! If you need a quilt finished quickly, Tammy can help. Her turn around time is currently two weeks! Bring your quilt top into the shop and a member of our staff can help you select batting and get the ball rolling on your ideal design. Next week I will introduce you to yet another talented quilter who recently re-joined the ranks!

Did you feel the brisk autumn chill in the air this morning? Fall has officially arrived and the cooler temps have me longing for a slow start snuggled up with a good book and a warm drink. Both of these quilts are perfectly suited for just such fall moments. Above, Stacey Giles coordinated and pieced her Winterfold lap quilt following the Modern Rose Garden pattern by,Carolina Patchworks. A similar color scheme was chosen by Chris Chamberlain to piece the baby quilt below to wrap her newest grandchild in later this winter. The pattern is Hi(bear)nate by Bonnie Christine and is available as a free download at artgalleryfabrics.com Both of these quick and easy quilt kits are available now in store!
