Where were you when you turned 19 years of age? I was away at my first year of college, making my mother an empty nester in search of a new hobby. A longtime seamstress who had always admired the art of quilt-making, she signed up for a class at the newly opened quilt shop in town, Corn Wagon Quilt Co. It wasn't long before she was an employee for Marsha Harward. Nineteen years later, I am lucky enough to have followed in my mother's stitching as one of Marsha's quilt-loving Corn Wagon gals.
Nineteen! Corn Wagon has seen many, many beautiful quilts walk through it's doors over the years, from national designers to talented locals, professionals and amateurs alike; quilt guilds, trunk shows, classes, clubs and events all with the effect of bringing together an inspiring quilt-making community. For this we thank you all! You make quilting creative, fun and incredibly rewarding.

It's here! Tilda's new Bird Pond collection and with it comes this adorable Rag Doll kit, buttons and books full of wonderful whimsy.
"Tilda is a fabric brand founded by Norwegian designer Tone Finnanger in 1999, best known for its whimsical and naive characters in the form of animals and dolls. There is a certain attitude to life in Tilda’s world, whimsical and romantic, like a ball gown worn with wellies – perfectly imperfect!" For more on Tilda click here!
This unique take on a traditional nine-patch was pieced by Chris Chamberlain and machine quilted by Ramona Sorensen. Lovely pink and grey florals from the Sussex
collection by Nancy Gere soften the contrast between the traditional use of dark, medium and light fabrics to create energetic movement in the Crooked Path
quilt. Kits and yardage are available here at the shop! The design is available as a FREE pattern download from Windham Fabrics
