"Sprucing Up A Bit"

Last week the Corn Wagon was one of the lucky quilt shops to participate on the bus tour during International Quilt Market. So you can imagine how busy we were getting the shop into tip top shape. We did a little rearranging and putting up new displays. Remember this work in progress? Here she is in all her glory, hung up ready for viewers. I think she turned out quite cute. Just adding the greenery around her makes everything come together

A blurry close up. In this quilt I used the line Elizabeth's Letters from Jill Finley for Henry Glass Fabrics. The pattern is called Button Up Buttercup from the Turning Twenty Slappique Book. Jill has a new fabric line coming out called Sorbet Garden. You should have seen her booth at market, so cute. And they were even serving up small ice cream cones to promote it.

And the Just Wing Quilt I was working on turned out oh so cute too.

This is what I did with in the front of the shop. Isn't it just shouting summer? Now if would ever get here. This is the Just Wing It line from Moda. The designers MoMo. The aprons are from the newest book from the Apron Lady. Thanks to Lynette O. for whipping those up for the display.

We still have pre-cuts and bolts of this fabric in stock. And I think there are a couple of kits available for the quilt.

The bus tour wiped us out of a few things but there is still plenty of eye candy to see at the Corn Wagon. Make sure you stop in on your way through and say hi. We love our out of towners. It was so fun meeting so many of them last week during market. It's to bad it only happens every 4 years. But don't wait that long to make it back.
