We're hopping and shopping all along the Wasatch! It was so much fun to see so many of our quilting friends lined up at our door bright and early this moring as they embarked on a "Wild Ride." The Utah Shop Hop is officially in full swing! Visit 12 fabulous quilt shops between now and Saturday, May 14th to see which amusement park attraction they have chosen as their theme. Corn Wagon was transformed overnight into The Tunnel of Love! Stop by and see the 20 NEW QUILTS on display just for shop hop all of which tie in with our romantic theme.
What do you think of when you hear "Tunnel of Love?" Love songs? Swan boats? Your sweethert by your side? Maybe even a little kissing going on? You'll find all of the above (although the kisses will be in the form of chocolate) this week at the Corn Wagon Quilt Co. When you float on in through our balloon tunnels, you'll find we've been doing some moving and shaking with some changes to our shop's organization and we think you're going to love what you find.
How many quilts can be made featuring heart blocks? A whole shop full! From Traditional to modern styles, we can't wait to show you some serious quilt love. Sending You Love (above) is a darling modern design by Satomi Quilts. Cymoni Whatcott used her knack for putting together modern color palettes to make the version you'll find on display in our new modern section. Edge to edge heart quilting by Dorene Johnson provides just the right finishing touch. Kits for the 76" x 76" Sending You Love quilt are available in store for $112.99 or you can pick up a pattern and pull a color combo to fit your personality.
Speaking of modern color combos... Chris Chamberlain knew what she was doing when she pulled the perfect mix of solids to play against a Speckled background for the new Graffiti Hearts quilt (above) by Patchwork & Poodle. Ramona Sorensen's free-motion graffiti quilting is an appropriate choice. This 52" x 68" cutie is waiting to greet you as you enter our backdoor and, good news, we have kits for $112.99!
And here is the quilt we have been waiting two years to unveil. Each shop participating in the hop has designed their own unique project to collect as a free pattern while on your "wild ride." We even have a Utah Shop Hop binder you can purchase for $3 to collect and store your patterns. At the Corn Wagon, our own Ramona Sorensen designed the Quilters Have Big Hearts quilt especially for The Utah Shop Hop 2022. A large lattice heart made from the graceful Roselyn collection by Minick & Simpson is pieced using a simple technique. You must visit the store in person to pick up a free pattern for this exclusive design. We also have kits available for $129.99.

New Teacher Alert! We're delighted to have JaNean Frandsen teaching at the School house. I'll allow her to introduce herself:
Buffalo Plaid Quilt Class:
Hi there friends! My name is JaNean and I love to make quilts. I have been sewing since 2008 when I discovered that quilts could have bright and bold colors and striking designs. I thought it might be a way for me to make inexpensive gifts for friends (ha!) and a way to spend my extra time. Quilting, especially piecing, has become an obsession and I won't be stopping anytime soon! I love to try new things and make the process more streamlined and efficient so I can get the most out of my time while caring for my four kids. I love to blend old and new techniques to make beautiful modern quilts. I hope you'll join me in class!
Everyone loves a Buffalo Plaid/Gingham quilt! This classic beginner friendly quilt pattern will teach you all the skills you need to know to make this striking quilt! The pattern uses simple 4 patch blocks to build a vibrant and stunning gingham design that looks great in any room in your home. JaNean will teach you how to chain piece, spin seams, and plan your quilt like a pro. Choose from two different class dates: Friday, May 20, 10am-2pm or Saturday, June 25, 10am-2pm. Candor Stars Quilt Class: The Candor Stars quilt pattern uses a unique method of making half square triangles that require NO TRIMMING! The big blocks (24" or 36") come together in a flash and create fun secondary patterns when sewn together. Your instructor will teach you how to use the endlessly handy Half Square Triangle rulers for this quilt and how to adapt any pattern to construct HSTs this way. As a bonus, the pattern and class cover how to spin your seams to make your points sharp and keep your quilt square. You will come away from class ready to level up all future projects with your new skills! Choose from two different class dates: Friday, June 24, 10am-3pm or Saturday, July 30, 10am-3pm.
