Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the FABRIC is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, let us sew, let us sew, let us SEW! We've had our first wave of winter storms here in Utah and we couldn't resist the urge to put up the tree and deck the Wagon for the holidays. We've been busy finishing up Christmas quilts and wool projects just in time for the season and they're all on display at the shop! Come in where it's warm and see what Santa has in store for you at the Corn Wagon.
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas with this rosey cheeked Santa surrounded in plaid. Shannon White put this quilt together faster than the jolly old elf can fly up the chimney using a panel and fabrics from the Holly Jolly collection by Urban Chiks. Jen Tanner jumped in with a cheerful matching table topper (right) using the Cutie Patootie pattern by Kati Cupcake. Marianne Michaels created a wool version of Nancy Halvorsen's Merry Christmas project from her I Believe book and we're in love with the bold wool typeface! We have kits for all three of these projects in-store but they're going fast so grab yours now before they dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree... how lovely are your stitches. Karen Averett had a jolly time making this festive pine forest. Using a stack of 10" precut squares of the Old Fashioned Christmas collection by My Mind's Eye allows for a variety of different prints to adorn each tree. The Christmas Pines kit finishes at 72" x 80" and includes the Plaid Pines pattern and acrylic Tall Triangle Template both by Lori Holt, a 10" Precut Stacker, green Swiss Dot background and binding for $179.99. You can snag yours here!
You better watch out, you better not cry... (as sung by Bruce Springsteen)
you better not pout, I'm tellin' you why... (because that's Lexi Lamb's all-time favorite Christmas song and she made this quilt)
Santa Claus is coming to town! From Art Gallery Fabrics comes Christmas in the City
and it's bustling with holiday nostalgia. Each print in this collection is so good that Lexi didn't want to cut them apart so she used the Brickyard
pattern by Amy Smart to frame each fabric in a delicious gingerbread colored C+S Basic. It's a modern quilt with throwback style and we are here for it! Kits available in-store and online
for $101.99.It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
If you aren't singing along with the Christmas songs in this newsletter yet, you will be after this quilt. Cheer and Merriment
was inspired by classic Christmas carols! Shannon White chose a metallic Essex Linen as a glimmering background for piecing simple squares, stripes and panel pop-outs. Using a panel and fabric by Fancy That Design House for Moda is what guarantees it's timeless charm. Kits for this 58" x 76" quilt include the pattern and yardage as shown for $118.99 and are available in-store or online
