This is the place... our HAPPY PLACE!
From the first moments the pioneers entered what would become the great state of Utah, it's been declared "the place." Having grown up here, it is certainly my happy place with it's quaint towns, native history, and natural beauty ranging from high mountain peaks to low arid deserts. It truly is a be-UTAH-ful place to be and I know I'm not alone in my love for "the place." I think this love is exactly what local designer, Holly Lesue of Maker Valley was expressing when she created her This is the Place
quilt. With it's traditional patchwork design using simple squares, it's a great beginner project. Emily Magleby chose blues ranging from navy to sky for background and a playful mix of low-volume prints for the great state but what really shows the love is that bright pink heart. Emily Herrick quilted smooth waves from edge-to-edge. Kits and patterns for this 67" x 81" throw quilt are available now in-store!We have another happy place in the making.
Our new Quilter's Mercantile is really taking shape! Shannon White and the girls at the wagon have spent the last few months gathering the goods... and boy, are they GOOD! Our hope is to provide a unique retail shop filled to the brim with quilter's gifts, home goods that bring a smile and treats with Utah flavor. We've been on some exciting field trips across the state to bring you some of the best from local makers! Ben Behunin's pottery studio was simply inspiring. Susie Goodspeed's Farm and Hive was buzzing with deliciousness. Sampling a variety Utah's best baked goods is never a bad thing. And these are just a few of the finds we're bring into "The Merc" for our quilter friends (that's you!) Boxes arriving daily mean Shannon is busy setting up shop! We're looking forward to the Grand Opening of the Quilter's Mercantile Saturday, November 2nd on what happens to be the 20th birthday of Corn Wagon Quilt Co.!
We'll reveal more details in the coming days. We can't wait to welcome you to our new happy place!
