Autumn is on it's way! Can you feel it? A bit of bite in the early morning air just hinting and the changes ahead. We're ready and waiting here at the Corn Wagon with fall fabrics, classes, block-of-the-month clubs and of course QUILTS! Stop in for some of the season's best inspiration. Our good friend Bone-ita has returned to share with you her favorite quilts for Halloween. She's a frightfully big fan of the Spooky and Sweeter fabric collection from Art Gallery Fabrics and so are we! So much so that we have two darling quilt kits available! Both are quick and easy to piece with large-scale blocks that really show off this unique line.
Front and center, we have Jenny's Easy Carpenter's Star
by Missouri Star Quilt Co. all dressed up for Halloween. Averi Smith chose a classic grey Peppered Cotton for a great background that allows the modern colors to shine. Custom machine quilting by Ramona Sorensen features friendly ghosts peeking through spiderwebs. Kits for this spook-tacular quilt include the pattern and fabrics for piecing the 83" x 83" quilt top and binding.
Bone-ita was looking a little chilly so we wrapped her up in another great Spooky and Sweeter
quilt, though it's a bit hard to see in this picture. You need to come see it in person! Shannon White used a favorite free pattern download from modafabrics.com called Do the Shuffle
to make the most of this fabric featuring cute witches and their wardrobe, bats, spiders and funky florals. Finishing at 70" x 82" inches it's perfect for wrapping up on a cozy autumn morning or after an evening of Trick-or-Treating. cornwagonquilts.com The Potting Bench Block of the Month

Goodness, we have so many fun things coming up this fall! National Sew a Jelly Roll Day is Saturday, September 18th and, once again, we'll be gathering at Corn Wagon Too for a day of sewing Jelly Rolls!
The 3rd Saturday in September has officially been designated as National Sew A Jelly Roll Day
to encourage collectors to tear open a Jelly Roll and make something for themselves, as a gift or for charity! As a quilter you likely have purchased those pretty 2-1/2" precuts without knowing exactly what you will make. As lovely as they are all packaged up, they end up on our shelves just waiting for the right project. Enter PROJECT: Jelly Roll, the annual event created to give you the perfect opportunity to turn that Jelly Roll into something wonderful! It can be a quilt or a tote bag, a pillowcase or something to wear, it doesn’t matter so long as we seize the day and celebrate the joy of being a maker. Reserve your seat
at our retreat center right away! Then grab a Jelly Roll from your shelf, dust it off, choose a project and sew with us here at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. Saturday, September 18th, 10:00am - 5:00pm
! Please bring a lunch or plan to take a break to go grab a bite locally. Not sure what project to choose? We recommend visiting modabakeshop.com
for free pattern downloads or of course we would love to help you find something wonderful here at the shop! BONUS: Exclusive FREE Jelly Roll patterns will be available at the event!
For information on more classes, clubs, block-of-the-months, sales events and holiday closures be sure to visit our calendar
often via our website! We are so happy to be gathering in our classroom once again. All of our classes are currently offered in-person only. Now that the mask mandate has been lifted here in Utah, face coverings are optional in our stores and classrooms....and one last happy note...
Ombre Woven Stripes by V & Co. have arrived in-store and oh, golly, are they ever pretty!
