The Summer Holiday forecast reflects the annual trend toward red, white and blue celebrations that honor those we love and respect. Beginning with Graduations and Memorial Day, the sunniest days of the year are marked by Father's Day, Independence Day, Pioneer Day (here in Utah) and closing with Labor Day. As makers, it's our instinct to pay tribute through our labor of love -- stitching up something special to reflect our respect. What will you be sewing this Summer? A new favorite throw quilt for dad or the grad? Quilts of Valor for Service Members? A patriotic masterpiece to display as a reminder? We would love to see what you've got up your devoted sleeve and support you in your efforts. Stop in and see what's new in red, white and blue then be sure to tag us on social media as you share your progress so we can celebrate your summer projects with you!
Stars and stripes combined with gingham, paisley and floral are the perfect recipe for a summer picnic quilt! Designs by Minick & Simpson for Moda always fit the bill for a classic Americana look you can enjoy year round.
You can never go wrong with Navy!
Crisp and sophisticated, deep blue is steeped in history. Considered a color of reflection, it's the natural choice for quilts intended to memorialize those honored. From Primitive Gatherings comes this rich range of navy paired with classic ivory. The Starlight Gatherings
collection is a nod to the past with all the freshness of the present.Looking for a bit of whimsy in your red, white and blue?
Sandy Gervais has you covered with her newest seasonal collection for Riley Blake Designs. Red, White and Bang

Swing in this summer and see what's new! Please note, Corn Wagon will be CLOSED this coming Monday, May 30th for Memorial Day. When in question, visit the calendar on our website
