She's Back! Emilly Herrick returns to Corn Wagon! Plus pooky delights for haunting season!
She's Ba-ack! We are happy to welcome Emily Herrick back to the ranks here at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. I feel like we're welcoming her home after an adventure away. And in a way, we are. Emily is a long-time friend of the shop. Born in California, she has spent her married years here in Utah, raising three children with her husband, Gilbert. Many of you know her as a quilt designer under the name of Crazy Old Ladies. Her love of fabric and artistic talents have led through the creation of quilt patterns, books and eight fabric collections for Michael Miller Fabrics! You all remember her ocean inspired Shore Thing, bold yet woodsy Rustique and more recently, Sodalicious - - That's Emily! Her current collection, Rustique Winter is available here at the shop along with kits for her adorable My Hood quilt, all shown below. Emily's creative mind is always thinking up new and innovative ways to approach quilting. The energy she brings to the shop is so much fun! We were sad to see her go a few months back as she took a break from quilting to try something new. But as we all know, once quilt-making has a hold on you, it's impossible to resist! She's back and she's eager to see all her quilty friends again. Whether you need her help deciphering a pattern, advice on creating your own color story or just want to say hello, stop in and enjoy the fabric with Emily!

Quilt Sampler Revisited
Friday, October 12th - - 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
A fresh take on a Corn Wagon classic! In 2003 our shop was published as one of Better Homes & Gardens Top 10 Quilt Shops. Little Prairie Houses, the quilt featured as our shop pattern in that magazine issue, was designed by Mary Jacobsen to celebrate Utah’s heritage. To mark 15 years since receiving that honor, Mary has revisited that popular pattern using a fresh new color palette. Now you can learn from Mary the techniques she used to piece those cute little houses surrounding a scrappy field of nine-patches fenced in by pinwheel blocks. Join us for this great skill building class and experience a traditional piece of quilt shop history in a new way.
Jelly Roll Rug Class
Saturday, October 13th - - 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
