"Who quilts all of your quilts?"
is a question we hear often at the shop and the answer is... our own wonderful team of machine quilting experts! Did you know Corn Wagon offers machine quilting services? We have three talented quilting professionals with years of experience ready to help you finish your quilt masterpiece. They are true artists with an eye for detail. Choose from custom, hand guided quilting or computer guided, edge-to-edge designs. A variety of edge-to-edge designs ranging from traditional to modern styles are available or you may request a custom design that highlights individual borders and blocks. Every quilt is treated as a unique work of art! Let's meet the team...
Utah native, Ramona Sorensen
, is a nationally recognized quilter. She has been with the Corn Wagon for 17 years and we are indeed lucky to have her as part of our team. Her original quilt patterns and machine quilting designs have been published in more than 50 periodicals including Quilters’ Newsletter, McCalls Quilting, Quilt Magazine, Fons & Porter and American Patchwork & Quilting. She is known to lay a quilt out for a time and allow it to tell her what it needs. Her specialty is free-motion, hand-guided machine quilting which she executes beautifully using our Gammill long arm right here in-house. Ramona would be happy to sit down and have a quilt consultation with you to discuss the possibilities!
The beautiful quilt above was custom machine quilted by Ramona Sorensen. Zoom in to see how she added flowers to some blocks and swirling leaves to others, enhancing the detail of each element. Kris Money chose a striking neutral palette from the Through the Woods
collection by Sweetfire Road for Moda Fabrics to piece the Blue Smoke
pattern by It's Sew Emma. This 68" x 91" stunner is available as a kit in-store for $169.99.
You'll find another example of Ramona's quilting talent in her original Summer Blossoms
design for our exclusive shop pattern featured in Quilt Sampler Magazine
(shown below). We recently pulled together more kits for this one, available now in-store and on our website
so if you missed one during it's original release, now's your chance!
New to our team of machine quilters, we welcome Tonya Colbert!
Tonya was born and raised in Ogden, Utah with a love for sewing that easily evolved into a passion for quilting. She recalls viewing some beautiful quilting one day with her husband and told him, " I want to do that." So she did! She purchased her own long arm machine and went to work. That was in 2009. Now, with years of experience she has mastered the art of hand guided machine quilting on her Handiquilter. We are thrilled to have her now accepting orders through Corn Wagon Quilt Co.
Would you believe the quilt above is actually a panel? Tonya put her free-motion quilting skills to work in a way that fools the eye into believing this quilt was pieced. Each block is addressed separately, telling a unique quilt story for one of our customers. The quilt below has a gorgeous repeating pattern that carries the eye steadily across the rows. Pieced by Tami Johnson and custom quilted by Tonya, the artistry of these two sewists creates an heirloom quality quilt. What ideas do you have for quilting your next masterpiece? Tonya can help you make those dreams come true!Dorene Johnson
is a wizard with computerized quilting designs and we are delighted to share her services through the Corn Wagon. Trained by Gina Perkes, world renowned quilter and owner of The Copper Needle in Arizona, Dorene fell in love with the precision of computerized quilting and has since become an expert. Dorene owns an INNOVA quilting machine that produces high-quality digital designs for beautiful edge-to-edge quilting. From simple meanders to themed designs, traditional looks to modern geometrics, Dorene's library of options is sure to have just the design your quilt needs.
The scrap happy quilt below was pieced by Jen Tanner using Winkipop Lollies
by Jen Kingwell and the Cake Mix Recipe technique. It's a a classic railroad quilt with a twist! Dorene Johnson worked her edge-to-edge magic with a computerized design called Dizzy Izzy and it's perfect for this quilt's spunky personality. We have kits for the 77" x 77" Lollies Sweetie Railroad
quilt in store for $179.99 that include the pattern by Miss Rosie as well as the Cake Mix Recipe required.
Another fun example of Dorene's computerized quilting is found on Cymoni Whatcott's Celtic Crossing
quilt. A selection of fabrics from Sharon Holland's Kismet
collection for Art Gallery Fabrics is showcased in this clean and simple pattern by Lo & Behold Stitchery. Dorene's use of large-scale edge-to-edge quilting is an ideal accent to the modern design.Our quilter's are currently only three weeks out
