We're waaaaay overdue for another Curated by Corn Wagon bundle! Our newest fat quarter set was coordinated by Kris Money. Have you met her? You may have crossed paths at the Mercantile or maybe she has cut fabric for you at the quilt shop? Kris has handwork in her heritage. Both of her grandmothers were well versed in quilting and handcrafts. She is lucky to have a few afghans, tatting and quilts made by both matriarchs and wishes now that she had appreciated their handwork more. She remembers her grandmother being close by when she made her own first quilt at just 11 years old. It was a 4H project that included a pigment transfer of a little boy. Kris finished it with hand quilting and prairie points. She still has it! Kris' favorite quilt project to date was the Harvest Roadside quilt she made for us here at the shop. It was a good challenge and she loves the way it came together. So do we!
Kris was raised not far from the Corn Wagon, in Salem, Utah. When asked where her happy place is, she thought for a moment of many places she likes to be but decided her true happy place is with her husband. Together they've raised four children and continue to run a beef cattle ranch. When she's not sewing, Kris is often watching her five adorable grandchildren.
When choosing fabrics for her Curated by Corn Wagon bundle, a bold orange homespun caught her eye. From there, she added a few floral prints from Rifle Paper Co. then played with some basics to balance the mix. Check out that cute little bicycle print! It's especially fitting paired with the florals in Kris' bundle because she has an old bike worked into her flower garden at home. Aren't these colors beautiful dappled in morning sunlight? I had to laugh when I realized the shoes I was wearing while snapping the photo matched -- then I just had to add this bundle to my own collection! You can too! Our Lucky 13 Fat Quarter Bundles are $45 while supplies last at the quilt shop. Be sure and give a wave to Kris while you're here!
