cornwagonquilts.comWe'll be ready to welcome you back to the shop Tuesday for FLAMINGO DAYS!
That's right! The time has come to once again celebrate a very special birthday... Marsha LOVES it when the season comes to hoist our pink feathered friends from their year long hibernation for our week-long celebration! We hope you'll join us in wishing our fearless leader a Happy Birthday during our Flamingo Days PINK PARTY Tuesday, July 6th - Saturday, July 10th. Why flamingos? Many years ago, Marsha mentioned how tacky -- I mean attractive those bright pink, long-legged yard ornaments are. Her friends took her comment to heart -- even accepted it as a challenge -- and now Marsha is the proud owner of the largest collection of flamingos this side of the Mississippi. Of course there's a quilt and it's quite possibly the most... stunning?... quilt you've ever seen... I mean it's... really something special.
It will be proudly on display next week during our PINK SALE! Tuesday, July 6th - Saturday, July 10th all regular price fabrics with even a speck of pink will be 20% off. That includes quilter's cottons, flannels, minky and even wool. If it's fabric and it has pink, it's 20% off! Please, come wave your feathered wing at Marsha next week. Maker's Tote ClassBack by popular demand, The Maker's Tote by Noodlehead is a favorite on social media.

You've got to try this ruler! A few of the Corn Wagon gals recently spent an evening with Shelley Taylor learning how to use the Pineapple Trim Tool by Creative Grids. This ruler makes what can otherwise be an intimidating block easy as can be! Look how pretty each block turned out. We had so much fun and you will too at Shelley's next Pineapple Trim Tool Class, Thursday, July 15th, 5:00-8:00pm at the Schoolhouse. You'll come away from class with at least one block and the know-how to complete a precision pineapple quilt set to your liking. Make a pillow, table topper, or an entire quilt. It's up to you! Stop in and choose one of two ruler sizes, pick a few fabrics to get you started and come sew!
