Celebrate our Great State with Be-UTAH-ful Quilts!
Here in the great state of Utah, the 24th of July is a holiday commemorating the arrival of Pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley. Parades, festivals, picnics and fireworks celebrate our history and heritage. For my family, it means it's time for another adventure in the be-UTAH-ful outdoors. We feel there's no better way to reflect on the wonder that is Utah than to be immersed in its awe-inspiring landscape -- and you know I'll be taking some stitching on the road with me. After all, quilting is an important part of our legacy and a weekend away wouldn't feel right without it!
Corn Wagon Quilt Co. will be CLOSED Monday, July 24th in honor of Pioneer Day.
Remember, we're OPEN 24/7 on our website! www.cornwagonquilts.com In fact, Magic Word Monday will still be happening online!
Seems like a perfect time to announce that we have made a few more kits available for the Desert Dreams quilt designed, pieced and quilted by our own Ramona Sorensen for the 2023 Shop Hop. If you missed getting a kit then, now is your last chance! Taking inspiration from the high deserts of Southern Utah this traditionally pieced quilt has nine star blocks reminiscent of designs woven by the Native American cultures of the southwest, framed by a border that echoes compass points. Begin your next quilt journey with this beautiful quilt kit found only at Corn Wagon Quilt Co. Kit includes the Desert Dreams pattern and yardage for piecing the 76" x 76" quilt top and binding for $139.99.
The Homecoming quilt also feels appropriate to share. When I made this quilt, I wanted it to reflect the colors I have come to love during the ski season here in my home state (Utah = Greatest Snow on Earth). Essex Linens by Robert Kaufman, bring beautiful texture and depth to this popular design 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 fabrics as shown for piecing the 53" x 71" quilt top and binding, as well as the pattern for $97.99. I chose "Onion Skin" E2E quilting that resembles flames to echo the warmth of the hearth where this quilt will offer cozy comfort and Dorene Cole carried it out beautifully!
I'm convinced there is no greater state to get out and enjoy the outdoors in than Utah and this wool block-of-the-month is just the thing for those of us who find their happy place in the wild. Camp Basin is a wonderful outdoor quilt designed by Buttermilk Basin. The 60" x 60" quilt features wool applique on a flannel background with lots of room for cute buttons and stitching embellishment. Stop in and see how fabulous our finished quilt, made by Marianne Michaels and quilted by Ramona Sorensen, really is! Look at all the fun details!
There is not a class associated with this BOM. For wool applique instruction, we invite you to attend one of our free wool applique demos or watch our Wool Applique YouTube tutorial here.
