Time for another edition of Corn Wagon Quilts for Kids! From newborn to the tween scene, we have cuddly quilts to wrap those little humans in love. Playful prints by the yard come in 100% quilter's quality cotton (soft), flannel (softer) and minky (softest). Pull your own unique fabric combo or pick up one of our ready-to-go kits so you can whip a quilt for your little tyke in no time at all!
We keep our selection of children's fabric fresh with updated colors and styles that appeal to kids and parents alike. The new Starry Adventures flannel line from 3 Wishes has a muted color story for the modern nursery (happy parents) as well as cute space-traveling critters (delighted kiddos). We also keep plenty of flannel blenders on hand, perfect for pairing receiving blankets. Did you know we offer hemstitching service? We sell hemstitching kits prepared for you to crochet around the edge and you are welcome to bring in your own flannel pairings for us to hemstitch. Give us a call for more details on pricing and current turn around time.
Friendly dinos and flora complimented by colorful geometrics are sure to sew up a roaring good time! Kate Ward Thacker and QT Fabrics are proudly sponsoring Quilts for Kids with 10% of all profits from this fabric collection going to quiltsforkids.org. The Dinosaur Steps kit includes the pattern by Pine Tree Country Quilts and Dinosaurus fabric from QT Fabrics for piecing the 43" x 52" quilt top and binding. Backing sold separately and we highly recommend using the coordinating 60" Dino Minky shown above! Free motion wave quilting by our own Averi Reilly.
It's always a good idea to keep the sewing simple when making a child's quilt since it's bound to get taken everywhere, spilled on, and washed a million times (AKA LOVED). There's nothing simpler than giant half-square triangles sewn side by side and the result is a bold, modern design ideal for featuring extra fun fabrics! Lynette Christensen made this quilt for her grandson, Brooks, hence the name, The Brooks Quilt. She selected prints that were playful enough for a child but sophisticated enough that he can grow up with it as a lap quilt. We have kits for the 63" x 75" Brooks Quilt including the fabrics shown above as well as Lynette's easy-to-follow instructions that you'll find yourself using over and over again!
Now, take those half-square-triangles, scale them down just a wee bit and organize them into blocks. That's exactly what Angie Pope did to make this sweet as can be Rosie Panda quilt. She fell in love with the panda print and pulled a simple blend of solids and delicate florals for a perfectly modern baby quilt. It's an ideal formula for creating a sweet yet sophisticated children's snuggler; whimsical focus fabric + solids + a few small prints = updated baby style. This is another design that can easily transition from baby to big kid as a 48" x 48" lap quilt.
Next time you're in the shop, we hope you'll stroll through the children's department to see what's new. BONUS: You'll find all baby clothes and accessories are 40% off! Pair that baby quilt with fun accessories for a one of a kind baby gift!
