On February 2nd, ole' Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring when he emerged from his winter quarters and did not see his shadow. At Quilt Corral, we sure hope he's right: Carol has been up to her knees in flood water while Barb, in Kansas, has just recovered from the Polar Vortex with it's sub-zero temps.

Mariner's Compass Sew Along
Did you miss out on the Mariner's Compass BOM? It filled so quickly that it even took us by surprise! We don't have enough of the fabrics used to cut more kits, however, we are now offering our Exclusive Mariner's Compass as a sew along. Here's how it will work: Purchase the template set and small flying geese ruler from Quilt Corral and sign up to get emails with the monthly kit insert that includes a color photo, the amount of fabric needed and the cutting for each unique block, just add fabric. Instruction booklet is included with the template set. This is a preorder item because we are sold out of templates at the moment but they usually ship quickly. Order by Feb 14.

Go! Tractor Die!
Did Accuquilt have Quilt Corral in mind when they created the Go! Tractor die? We've already been thinking about kits for this die! But here's the thing, it's a Die to Try so that means there is limited inventory. Once the first batch is sold out it may be months before it comes back in the regular line up. We have a limited number on order. Reserve yours today!

Focus on handwork
Red Button Quilt Co includes tiny red buttons with their patterns. We selected a few of our favorites and now have kits ready. If you love English Paper Piecing, choose Little Red Two. If you love tiny red flower buttons (be still my heart!) choose Little Red Eighteen. They each finish approx 16" x 19". If you love red, choose both! Click here to shop Little Red.

Harmony the Highland Cow
For all our Funky Friends collectors it's the new Highland Cow pattern! If you love the idea of making a stuffed toy but just aren't sure, these patterns are very well written and there are helpful online videos. Barb has stitched a few of them and has found the Funky Friends Facebook page a great place to learn from others who are making them too.
