We couldn't be more excited to welcome our new neighbor, Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful to the Corn Wagon for a trunk show and two exciting class opportunities! Have you tried the Quick Curve Ruler? This popular ruler was the brain-child of Jenny when she wanted to find an easier way to consistently cut curves that would be easy to sew. The first Quick Curve Ruler and pattern Urban Escape were sold in 2011. Since then, thousands of Quick Curve Rulers and QCR patterns have been sold worldwide to quilters who have fallen in love with curved piecing using the easy techniques of the Quick Curve Ruler.
Jenny made her first quilt in 2002 and fell in love with the quilting process! She is married with 6 children and recently moved to Springville, UT. Some of her favorite things to do besides quilting are, spending time with her family, anything to do with home decor and working out at the gym. In 2007 she started her own longarm quilting business in order to work from home. Jenny has a unique ability to see the secondary design that can be created with quilting which gives the perfect compliment to the piecing. After 7 years of quilting for others full time, Jenny fell in love with pattern design which is now her quilting love. Since Sew Kind of Wonderful started in 2011, there have been over 100 designs created all using specialized rulers for a fun and easy technique to sewing! Jenny has had the opportunity to travel and teach internationally and loves to meet and connect with other quilters all over the world!

New fabric arrives daily here at the Corn Wagon. When the delivery person arrives, we all jump to open the boxes and see what goodies are inside! Two of our most anticipated lines of the season recently went out on the shelf. Always intriguing, Tilda has released another gorgeous collection, Chic Escape (above). Delicate, detailed florals are larger in scale than her previous designs with rich jewel toned hues. On the opposite end of the style spectrum we have the new Honey Warp and Weft Wovens (below) by Alexia Marcelle Abegg for Ruby Star Society. Oh my gosh, are they great! Exotic, earthy tones put a modern spin on homespun wovens and solids. These collections will go fast so swing by and snag yours right away!
