London Blues BOM Update
Due to an incorrect cutting sheet, your month one piece of Fabric 5 is not large enough for your fussy cutting. Since we have already cut the incorrect size, we are leaving that for you to use throughout the BOM when this sku is used for smaller pieces that are not fussy cut. Use the larger piece we will provide to fussy cut what you need for Month 1 and succeeding months.
For those participating by mail, some packages had not been shipped yet and had the larger piece of Fabric 5 added. For those whose packages had already been shipped, you'll receive a second package with your larger piece of Fabric 5. If you have already picked up your packet, you may pick up your larger piece in the store, or we will put it in your month 2 packet. Thank you for your understanding while we take care of this issue.
London Blues still has openings available!

What's New at RQ
Melonberry Batiks by Judy and Judel Niemeyer for Timeless Treasures are our newest collection of batiks. Shades of warm orange and cool turquoise with a touch of blue and purple make this a unique group.
It's snowing at Rossville Quilts....at least in the back room where we unpack boxes that is! Pearl Frost by Kanvas Studio is bringing a touch of "frost" to town with this new group enhanced with pearlescence. Snowflakes, stars, and pinecones in cool shades with a "glow" from the pearlescence are perfect for your next wintry project. The Splendid Snow Table Runner is a great place to start!
Haiku Iceberg by Deborah Edwards for Northcott is another "cool temperature" collection now at RQ. The panel (featured above) is digitally printed as are several coordinates. There are also five Stonehenge prints in matching colors that are sure to be loved by all our Stonehenge fans, including a Haiku Iceberg Stonehenge Extra Wide Backing!
