2 More Days to Hop the Shops -- Plus, get in on our NEW WOOL BOM!
Have you hit the road yet for the 2023 Utah Shop Hop? It's not too late! We have two more days of celebrating the "Forgotten Holidays" at 13 quilt shops along the Wasatch. The party rages on here at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. for "Beyond the Backyard Day." It's been awesome to meet and greet quilting friends old and new this week. We hope to meet you too! So, gather the quilting gang, hop in the car and follow the road map found at utahshophop.com for a weekend of hopping the shops!
Sweet Ride is one of 18 new quilts on display at the Corn Wagon as we travel "Beyond the Backyard" for some outdoor adventures in quilting. This playful mix of florals and travel-themed fabrics by Laundry Basket Quilts is intended for children but it's sophisticated enough for kids of ALL ages. It was the perfect choice for these adorable applique cars. Your next destination is just around the bend when you follow the road map on the background fabric. Our kit includes the pattern, also by Laundry Basket Quilts as well as yardage required for piecing the 55.5" x 63.5" quilt top and binding. Our cute sample was pieced by Chris Chamberlain and quilted by Ramona Sorensen.
Don't feel rushed! Enjoy a slow stroll through the shop so you can take in all the sights along the way. Look carefully; flora and fauna abound as you make your way "beyond the backyard." Garden Snails is a fun & whimsical quilt pattern by Pen + Paper Patterns. Cymoni Whatcott chose fat quarters from the Eden collection by Gabrielle Neil and paired them with a mix of modern solids for piecing the 58" x 67.5" quilt top and binding for $86.99. The background is our current favorite, Kona - Lingerie. It's a gentle, neutral peach tint that goes with so many current collections, we can't get enough of it! E2E quilting by Dorene Cole.
As you walk through our neck of the woods, what else will you find? Forest Fungi is another traditionally pieced quilt for the intermediate sewist by Pen+ Paper Patterns. Lynette Christensen selected an autumn blend of Art Gallery Pure Solids against a neutral Artisan Cotton background to reflect the colors of nature as you piece the cutest toadstools you've ever seen! Delicate Rifle Paper Co. floral for binding finishes this one perfectly. Our kit includes the pattern and fabrics as shown for piecing the 57" x 70" quilt top and binding for $123.99.

After taking in all the sights in the wild, make your way to a cozy cabin in the woods. Jen Tanner enjoyed putting this quick and easy quilt together (below) over a weekend while reflecting on her own travels through the wilderness of Utah. Essex Linens bring beautiful texture and depth to the Homecoming quilt by Lo & Behold Stitchery. Earthy tints of blue, green, and gold against a slate background make this quilt feel like it belongs at the lodge. Our kit includes Essex Linens as shown for piecing the 53" x 71" quilt top and binding, as well as the pattern. E2E quilting by Dorene Cole.
