Woodsy and Whimsy by Hoffman

This painterly collection is perfect for that woodsy person in your life. Trees, woodland creatures and leaves take us to the forest.

Sweet Freedom by Riley Blake

You can always count on finding great patriotic prints at Quilt Corral! Sweet Freedom includes great plaids, and wonderful florals in addition to the usual stars and fireworks! We have it in 10" squares,a panel, a quilt kit and, of course, yardage. The quilt kit starts with the panel - just make a few blocks and add borders!

Featured Panels!  

Ponderosa Horse Barn Panel

We've featured the Ponderosa collection in the newsletter previously and finally got a sample of the darling toy Horse Barn panel stitched up. Make the barn, four horses and two bales of straw for a favorite little ranch hand in your life!

Click here for the panel.

New Kits!

Simple Solstice

Start with a layer cake to make this fast and fun project.. We've kitted it with a pack of 10" precuts from Riley Blake in the Sunshine and Sweet Tea collection. This project is Accuquilt friendly making it even faster to cut and sew!

Click here for the kit.

Click here to see the Sunshine and Sweet Tea Collection (in case you want to order backing while we still have it! 5 yds needed.)

Focus on handwork

My Country Petite Pillows

The sample pictured was stitched on the parchment background, which is sold out. However, we still have panels in stock with the Wheat background (they are a little more golden). The embroidery designs are printed for you so you can begin stitching right away. Not an embroiderer? Leave them unstitched and make into pillows as they are. Pillow backings are included on the panel.

Click here to shop the panel.

New Notion!
Binding Board

Designed for folding and pressing bindings by sliding it between two pins, we are in love with this pressing board. But we aren't necessarily using it for making bindings. It's sturdy enough to serve as a lap board, (Carol is using it for pressing half square triangle blocks while watching TV) or when you only have a small space beside your machine for an ironing surface (Barb is putting hers in her RV). The beautifully made cover fits snuggly. Flip it over for a smooth surface for tracing or for writing on. A big hit at our recent retreat, we still have a few in stock. Extra postage may apply if shipping is required.

Click here to shop the Binding Board.

Another New Notion!

Tools and Embellishment kit

All the rage with our retreaters, this is the perfect carrying case for your portable sewing room. Unfold, and it becomes a tripod display case that takes up very little space at your sewing station. Use if at your machine at home, then fold it up for sewing on the go.

Click here for red. Click here for black. This item is availalbe for store pick up only.

New patterns!

Winging Kit Pattern (this is not a kit, that's just the title of the pattern.)

"Sew chicks with wings for treasured things!" This fun pattern is from Java House Quilts and makes a silly chicken with a zipper in the back. Designed to stow a small iron, you could also use it for a pencil holder filled with your favorite sewing implements. Take it to retreat or sew days, unzip the back and lift out the pencil holder, ready to go.

Click here to get the pattern.


Featured GO! Accuquilt!

New Block on Board!

Turkey in the Straw Die

Cut all the pieces for this block using just one die. Everything you need is on the Block on Board. A great bonus of this die is there are no points coming together in the center of the block!

Click here to get yours.

Back in Stock!

Kia 5 1/2" Embroidery Scissors

Featuring wide finger openings and sharp points all the way to the tip. A long standing favorite at Quilt Corral, these scissors are back in stock!

Veteran's Quilt Project

Special thanks for two donated quilts from our friends Susie Ramos and Paula Towner. And thanks to all the ladies who sewed blocks during the last retreat. With your help we are ahead of schedule in making quilts for our local Veteran of the Month program!

May all your spring projects bring cheer!
