Chocolate Covered Cherries by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass.
Just when you think Kim Diehl's fabrics might be looking like repeats along comes Chocolate Covered Cherries!! Warm pinks, browns, and creams in reproduction style prints. (If you think Barb had anything to do with Quilt Corral getting this collection you would be right!) There will be kits coming later but this has just arrived and we couldn't wait to show you!
Click here to shop the entire collection.
Lower the Volume by Blank
White backgrounds with small motifs. Great for when you want a little more than white in the background. Carol loves using these prints in her scrap quilts. We've restocked some that were previously sold out and added a few new prints.

Scrappiness is Happiness

Be Mine Zipper Pouch
Part of our grab and go kits, we've included the pattern, pre-cut 2 1/2" squares, a red zipper and red for the heart, lining and bottom. The design makes a larger than usual zipper bag (maybe we should say "taller") and the construction results in a flat bottom that stands up well.

Focus on handwork
Everything Nice Ornament Kit
Sometimes our vendors send us free patterns (in hopes that we will stock them at Quilt Corral!) When we recently re-ordered dishtowel patterns from Bare Roots, this clever ornament pattern was tucked in the box. What makes this ornament unique is it's roundness. Applique the woolfelt to orange peel shapes, then assemble into the ball. Kit includes the pattern with all of the ornament options and enough woolfelt to try out one of the designs.

A stand up magnetic pin cushion, the Pin Alert will keep your pins at your fingertips. Doubles as a caution sign for next to the iron to remind you when it's hot - especially when sewing with friends and at retreats!
