|Summer! It's Summer!!
Barb's favorite time of year! Carol likes summer too but she doesn't like the heat. Barb, on the other hand, will take a hot day in July over a cold Kansas winter any day!

All Good Things are Wild and Free
Fusible machine applique. Gigantic blocks. 3" sashings and 5" borders. What does all that mean? Quick work to make a big quilt! We are in love with these forest friends set in trendy colors of grey and turquoise. Kit includes fabrics as shown and full size paper patterns for the large animals.

Focus on handwork
Deck the Boughs by Kathy Schmitz. Make 12 embroidered ornaments. The kit has EVERYTHING needed. That's right, we've gathered all the unique supplies for you and put it all together into one kit. Includes the pattern, fabric and floss for embroidery, precut batting circles, 2" wooden circle disks, precut scalloped woolfelt backing, baker's twine, and jingle bells. If you love embroidery you will enjoy the way Kathy introduces less common stitches in clever ways, such as rows of chain stitch to fill in larger areas.

Quilt Binding Tool
If you struggle with connecting the tails of your binding with a seam, this ruler might be just the thing you need. It has markings for 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" cut size binding strips. The little 1/4" cut out is useful for marking the corners for mitering in exactly the right spot. It's new and we have it at Quilt Corral!!

Sew Daisy by Laundry Basket Quilts
You're not going to believe what a nifty notion this is! Snap a daisy onto each end of a spool of thread. You just created a needle case! Think about when sewing on bindings, or for your hand applique or embroidery. You need a needle handy! Note: Barb wants this for sewing on airplanes.

Summit Storage Boxes
If you've been in the shop recently you may have seen these adorable storage boxes. Measuring 7" x 7" x 1 1/2" high, they are perfectly sized for 6 1/2" quilt blocks. Or use them to keep all the parts to a small project together. Or what about storing smaller notions that tend to sift to the bottom of the drawer. Or a summer sewing project! The list goes on ...
