It's happening again... I'm sorting through my fabric stash. So. Much. Fabric. I'm finding fabric I haven't seen in a while, fabric I forgot I had, fabric I still love and, let's be real here, some fabric I could probably live without. And maybe a few kits, patterns, books... just a few. Why am I sorting? I'm getting ready for the next S.A.B.L.E. Sale! And I'm not the only one. Saturday, May 15th, the Corn Wagon parking lot will be full of quilters just like me who are ready to part with a portion of their stash. It's your chance to find some serious sewing treasures! Stop by between 10:00am and 3:00pm and browse the goods. Each vendor will set their own prices and handle their own transactions so come prepared with cash or Venmo. We're rounding up some food trucks (have you tried Renee's Cheesecake? Yum!) and setting up shop for a day of open-air shopping and mingling. Corn Wagon will have a large selection of clearance fabric on sale in our School House and of course the quilt shop and mercantile will be open as usual! So, help us spread the word! We're clearing out the S.A.B.L.E.s (Stash Accumulated Beyond Life Expectancy) and want all the good stuff to go to a loving quilter's home.

New to the quilt shop! Geese in Flight is an eye-catching modern design by Jeni Baker of In Color Order. Lexi Lamb has had her eye on these scrumptious linen/cotton fabrics by Anna Graham for Robert Kaufman, and knew this was the perfect pattern to play with these unique prints. Emily Herrick added to the modern esthetic with a free-motion "scribble" quilting design. Our kit includes the pattern and these fabulous Driftless fabrics for the 70" x 85" quilt top and binding for $102.99. You'll also find yardage for these and many more cotton/linen prints from Robert Kaufman at the quilt shop. We love the way they add a bit of earthy texture but still have a soft hand.
Another quilt full of glorious texture,
Marianne Michaels pieced this Bronte's Stars quilt using color-saturated wovens by Giucy Giuce for Andover Fabrics. We are absolutely in love with this collection and, oh, how they shine in this modern star pattern! Ramona Sorensen created a secondary pattern with detailed custom quilting. Our kits include the Bronte's Stars
pattern by Emma Jean Jansen as well as Entwine
fabrics as shown above for the 60" x 72" quilt top and binding for $102.99.
