There's a Party Goin' on Right Here! Celebrating Corn Wagon's 21st Year!
Happy 21st Birthday Corn Wagon! If you've been following our stories on social media, you know we're in the middle of a party over here. Corn Wagon has been in the quilting bizz for 21 years and we're celebrating with daily deals! Every morning this week, Lexi and I are popping a balloon from our party bouquet to discover the deal of the day! Check our most recent story on Instagram or Facebook to find out what's on sale and see how wild the party gets as the week goes on. We started first thing Monday morning with discounts at the Mercantile and a bubbly "cheers" to 21 years. Tuesday we were happy to announce a red, white and blue sale just in time for election day! Wednesday we enjoyed a discount on precuts and fat quarters and Thursday was all about the wool. If you're arriving late to the party, don't worry! There's still two more days to celebrate! Put on your party hat, don your fanciest face mask and pop in the quilt shop and mercantile this weekend to help us celebrate 21 years of quilting at Corn Wagon!

When you cross the party threshold into the quilt shop, you'll be greeted by this beauty! It's a celebration of happy color bursting with charm. Emily Magleby has been collecting fabrics by Heather Ross for years. When she heard Heather would be reprinting her favorite designs as part of her 20th Anniversary Collection for Windham Fabrics, Emily was ecstatic! She had the perfect pattern in mind and went straight to work sewing up this Swoon quilt the minute the fabric arrived. The characteristic center stars in Camille Roskelley's Swoon pattern are ideal for fussy cutting to showcase Heather's iconic illustrations. Taking this work of art to the next level, Emily Herrick's free-motion, custom quilting adds to the playful energy of the piece. You can't help but smile as you examine the details of this delightful quilt. Kits are available at the shop for $122.99 and include the pattern, a darling mix of Heather Ross favorites and background for piecing the 80" x 80" top and binding all packaged in a convenient zippered, vinyl project pouch.
To the left of our Heather Ross Swoon quilt, you'll notice a captivating Ocean Waves quilt. A true scrap masterpiece, this quilt was made by Suzanne Adams using a super scrappy mix of navy, grey and yellow with pops of aqua and coral. The color scheme takes this traditional pattern to new modern heights. Don't let all those half-square triangles scare you! Susanne used Thangles! If you haven't tried them, you must and we would love to show you how they work to make HSTs a quick, easy and accurate process. The pattern for this quilt is found in one of our favorite books, Oh Scrap! by Lissa Alexander where you'll discover several patterns intended to help you make the best use of your scraps. The book is included in our Ocean Waves kit for $98.99 along with all the fabrics you'll need to make the quilt.
...And to the right, you may have spotted this sweet little wool applique project. Marianne Michaels has put kits together for this darling new pattern by Buttermilk Basin, Grow Happiness. At just 14.5" x 14.5" this wool applique project is one you can take on-the-go. Wouldn't it be darling in a new baby's room as a pillow or wall decor? Or a perfect project to celebrate the coming of spring!
Have you ever fallen in love with a pattern only to find the size is not what you had in mind. I spotted this design in a Block magazine from Missouri Star Quilt Co. It was just perfect... until I realized it was MUCH smaller than what I needed. Hmmmm... I could add some borders. Or maybe some extra blocks? How much more fabric will I need to buy...? We've all been there, right? Well, as I studied the pattern, I realized it had originally been made using charm squares (5" precuts). Why not use a stack of 10" squares instead to make the blocks twice as large! That's just what I did and the result is this easy, modern twin-size quilt! Our kits feature these hard-to-find Cotton + Steel classics and a white-on-white polka dot background. Emily Herrick added a unique custom quilting design to add interest to the bold, simple blocks. The result is a fabulously functional adaptation to an already great pattern. And it's cute too!

Saturday Sampler Kit pick-up begins Saturday, November 14th, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Due to continued concern regarding Covid-19, we have decided to move forward in the same fashion as last month. This will likely remain the case for the foreseeable future. Club members may pick up the second kit beginning Saturday, November 14th during our regular hours of 10am - 5pm but we encourage you to come in during the following week to help us keep individuals in the shop at a safe number. The exclusive Saturday Sampler discount coupon (found in your kit) will be valid November 14 - 21, 2020 so you'll want to be sure and pick up this kit before Saturday, November 21st. Instead of gathering in the classroom for a demo this month, we will provide YouTube demos by Amy McClellan.
Because we respect the health and safety of our customers and employees, our regular discounts and promotions are suspended until further notice to discourage crowds from gathering in the shop. This includes Monday at the Merc, Wednesday's Word and Wrong Price Wednesday (fat qtr sale) and Stuff-a-Bag Sale. We anticipate the return of these sales when Utah enters it's "green" phase of Covid-19 recovery.
Thank you for supporting your local brick-and-mortar quilt shop! We feel honored to be part of such a wonderful quilt-making community.
We hope you'll visit us again soon, Jen and the Girls at Corn Wagon Quilt Co.
