Twelve Gifts of Christmas Shop Hop
Thank you for all the lovely comments about how much fun you had at Quilt Corral during the Twelve Gifts Shop Hop! We had fun too!
Quilts for Veterans
Quilt Corral is partnering with our local VFW to make quilts for local veterans. Our goal is to donate one quilt a month to be gifted to the Veteran of the Month honoree. If you have an interest in supporting this community service project we are seeking block makers (see below for details), sew day workers to turn the blocks into quilts and machine quilters willing to donate quilting (one quilt per year). Let Carol know if you can help.
Make Blocks, Enter a drawing!
To launch the Veteran Quilt Project Carol has been cutting up scraps and making pre-cut block kits. Pick up a kit or two, sew the block and return it to Quilt Corral. When you bring your block back we will enter you into a quarterly drawing for a $50 Quilt Corral Gift Certificate. The more blocks you make, the more chances you have to win. The current batch of blocks are 8"x 8".
If you live outside our area but would still like to sew a pre-cut block, just send us a self addressed stamped envelope and will will drop a block kit in the mail to you. Send it back and we will enter you in the drawing.
Quilt Corral, Veterans Quilt Block
245 W Wood St
Just in! Another traditional Western collection in the colors we love - denim, red, and warm browns. Perfect for those western projects on your to-do list and with only 5 prints in the collection we are showcasing them all in this newsletter! A "Carol find" from Quilt Market. Blends well with other collections in the store.

Forget Me Not by Windham
Where do I even begin? Diagonal plaids, tiny flowers, mason jars, stamps ... navy, peach, red, green, yellow in bright, light and multi prints of clusters of flowers and tonals. We love it and think you will too! We also have the 10" pre-cut squares! I can't even decide which prints to showcase. Please click the link and look at them all!!

"Aurora - Call of the Wild"
A gorgeous digitally printed panel. Have you seen the Aurora Borealis? Us? No. But this panel is so vivid we can almost imagine it! Pairs well with Fairy Frost and Glisten fabric collections for that crisp, wintery look.
Shop here for the panel.
Click here for pattern that would work well with the panel.

Put a seam ripper or scissors on the loop. When you want to use it push in the button and it will pop off the ring so scissors are not attached to your lanyard. When finished, pop the button back on. Brilliant, especially for those of you who never have a long enough lanyard for your scissors.

New From Accuquilt!
Go Plaited Block on Board Die
Makes a 12" block, all the shapes needed are on one die! Curious about Accuquilt? Ask for a demo next time you're in the shop.
Click here to buy the die.
Can you picture this project in the Forget me Not collection featured above? How about Farm girls Unite? Or Lori Holt prints? Or Patriotic? Solids? Westerns?
Get the pattern here.
Focus on handwork
Do you have trouble with embroidered satin stitch? Here's a technique to try: Fill with rows and rows of straight stitch (or stem stitch). The finished look is so pretty. Make the Home pillow with one mini charm pack, a background and a coordinating backing plus a little pom pom trim (isn't it cute?). It would be cute in Christmas prints with the flower stitched in red!
Get the book here (we only have one left!!!)

Beginner Embroidery Kits
These kits of little embroidered pictures in a wooden hoop are another great find from Quilt Market. Everything to complete the project, including the small hoop, comes in it's own drawstring bag. There are so many cute designs that we had a hard time choosing. Barb's favorite is Lake Tahoe. Carol's is, of course, the patchwork star! Which is yours? See all our current inventory by clicking here.
Ha! Just when you thought we would stop talking about Tiny Trees, guess what Carol discovered? Tree template sets in two more sizes!
Click here for the original Tiny Trees Template Set and pattern. Finished size is 3" x 4.5".
Click here for the medium which is called: Little Trees Template Set and pattern. Finished size is 4" x 6"
Click here for the largest, which is called: Mini Tree Template Set and pattern. Finished size is 6" x 9".
Here's a little scrap quilt Carol made using all three.
