With more time spent at home in the sewing room, over the past year you may have noticed you have acquired a bit of a stash. No, not of the upper-lip variety... although... never mind. We won't go there. Of course, I'm talking about FABRIC! And kits. And patterns. And... the list goes on! We know. We're right there with ya. In fact we have a name for that. We call it S.A.B.L.E. Syndrome. S.A.B.L.E stands for Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy. It's real. But don't panic! We have the cure! Saturday, May 15th we are hosting another S.A.B.L.E Sale in our Corn Wagon Too parking lot! Rent a parking stall for $25 and set up shop 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. with fabric, patterns, kits, notions - - anything quilting related that you're wiling to part with. You set your own prices and manage your own transactions for your own S.A.B.L.E Sale! You can even get a group of friends who are also affected by S.A.B.L.E. syndrome and share a space! We'll get the word out. You bring the goods! Reserve your parking stall today online or contact Shannon at the Quilter's Mercantile for more information. We hope you'll join us for a day of fresh air fabric shopping this May!
Are you ready for another cute Pillow of the Month pattern by Ella + Charming? March is here! Natalie Smith put together a lively mix of spring green fabrics to make four traditional Rocky Mountain Puzzle blocks for the newest addition to her quilted pillow collection. We find it especially charming here in Spring-ville nestled along the rocky Wasatch mountains. We have a limited number of kits available in-store for $27.99. Each kit includes the pattern and fabrics for the 18" x 18" pillow front and back. Be sure to peek at the back of the pillow while at the shop! It's super cute too! Pillow insert and optional zipper are not included. This pattern is available to purchase as a PDF from our website for just $4.99! You'll find the pillow cover patterns from January and February there as well so you can collect them all.
Speaking of green, we've pulled some favorite green cottons and marked them down 25% off! Whether you're one to celebrate the Luck O' the Irish or just need to replenish your stash for spring... be sure to get your greens! You'll find this lucky little shelf near the register at the quilt shop now through March 17th or until (like leprechaun magic) they disappear.
Next time you're at the Corn Wagon, see if you can spot this beautiful new quilt pieced by Marianne Michaels. Patchwork Petals by Bonnie Sullivan of All Through the Night combines pieced petal blocks with applique' stems and leaves. Marianne has put together a wonderful blend of red and green cotton prints and homespuns for this traditional-style beauty. It's available in-store as a kit and includes the pattern along with fabrics for the 72" x 72" quilt top and binding for $164.99. Ramona Sorensen added gorgeous custom quilting to each petal and leaf! You really must see it in person.

this show-stopping Night Sky
quilt by Jaybird Designs is truly a wonder to behold. Pieced to perfection by Julie Hancock, this quilt features Tula Pink's True Color
fabrics. Using the Sidekick Ruler simplified the process. Don't you love the shaped edge along the top and bottom? Take a closer look at the custom machine quilting by Emily Herrick. It's unreal! She took inspiration from the radiating stars in this bold Night Sky
and mapped out a unique celestial themed design perfect for this masterpiece. Kit's are available as well as Sidekick rulers in-store now.
