We're celebrating someone dear to our hearts
this week at Corn Wagon. It's Marsha's birthday! You know what that means! Time to wake our pink feathered friends from their yearlong hibernation for our PINK PARTY! We hope you'll join us in wishing our fearless leader a Happy Birthday during our Flamingo Days PINK SALE today and tomorrow, July 8th & 9th.
Why flamingos, you ask? Many years ago, Marsha mentioned how tacky -- I mean tasteful
those bright pink, long-legged yard ornaments really are. The Corn Wagon Gals took her comment to heart -- even accepted it as a challenge -- and now Marsha is the proud owner of the largest collection of flamingos this side of the Mississippi. Of course, there's a quilt and it's quite possibly the most... stunning?... quilt you've ever seen... I mean it's... really something special.
You'll find it proudly on display this weekend along with a good portion of Marsha's coveted collection.
Today and tomorrow all fabric yardage with even a speck of pink will be 20% off. That includes quilter's cottons, flannels, minky and even wool. If it's fabric yardage and it has pink, it's 20% off the regular price! Cannot be combined with other offers. Kits are not included in this sale. Please, come wish Marsha another glorious feathered flight around the sun!
Let's discuss this STUNNING quilt. It's one we are particularly proud of. It's such a prized possession (maybe Marsha's favorite?) that it's only out on display once a year. It has a story. When Marsha first expressed her "fondness" for flamingos in the early years of Corn Wagon Quilt Co. our dear friend, Mary Jacobson, put together these adorable flamingo quilt blocks and generously gifted them to Marsha. Thrilled by the possibilities, Marsha added a tacky -- oops! I mean tasteful
border and graciously gifted it back to Mary. As you may have guessed, the quilt was passed back and forth, each friend adding another finishing touch until it was finally declared a masterpiece of incomparable design and was quilted and bound. Through the years we've made some bedazzling additions. Annually, it is brought out with great ovation and displayed in all it's splendor for Marsha's big day until, alas, it must go back into our heavily guarded, temperature controlled archives until next year. This treasure was just the beginning of many flamingo gifts as you can see...
and as it is truly and original work of art, I'm sorry to say we do not have kits.
Without Marsha, our happy place simply would not be. She has given us a place to find friendship and inspiration here in this brick and mortar quilt shop in Springville, Utah. All the flamingos in the world wouldn't be enough to show our love and gratitude to this great lady but by golly, we've gotta start somewhere!

The Candor Stars Quilt Class Join pattern designer JaNean Frandsen and learn how to make her popular Candor Stars quilt! This 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. JaNean 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!
for class, Saturday, July 30, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm here at the Schoolhouse. Patterns are available in store and include instructions for a variety of sizes beginning with the cutest baby quilt made using just one large-scale Candor Star block (above). Come in and see two size options on display. We even have kits for the baby size in the fabrics shown above for $42.99, perfect for practicing the technique and finishing in class!
