Featured Panels!  

Halloween Sampler designed by Barb Eikmeier

A Quilt Corral Exclusive, the Halloween Sampler features all the craziness of J. Wecker Frisch by combining 5 different panels from the Mad Masquerade and Queen of Ween collections into one large spooky quilt! The kit includes the panels and fabrics to make the 85" x 85" quilt and step by step instructions with colored pictures to guide you through construction. We've included Marti Michell's 10" log cabin ruler for making the background log cabin blocks and a roll of black chenille for adding those final creepy touches.

Limited edition! We only have 8 kits. The finished sample will be on display in the store later this week.

Click here to see more detailed photos and to get your kit (We will hold shipping for a few days pending printing of the instructions which should be ready this week).

New Kits!
We have a new table runner kit. It's never too early to start on Christmas gifts!

Click here to shop for the Star Runner in reproductions.

Click here to shop for the June Tailor Quilt-as-you-go table runner. Carol sewed her version in westerns. You can choose anything you like. The best part is it's quilt as you go, so when you're finished with the top, you're done!

Daydream in Albion

We featured this fabric collection and kit last month but now have the sample finsihed so we're showing it again. This project would be easy to enlarge by adding borders or another row of blocks. The blocks are made in sets of four for streamlined cutting and sewing. The corner triangles in the blocks automatically create those cute pink Shoo Fly blocks.

BloomBerry Pouch panel

Also featured last month, we now have samples made so you can see how cute these pouches are! You'll need foam stablilizer such as Soft and Stable, and due to the way they are constructed, Barb recommends additional fabric for the lining so you can use the printed "lining" to make more pouches!
