News to Use from RQ October 12
Posted by KJCB on October 12, 2017
A big THANK YOU to all who donated quilts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey! We received many wonderful quilts on BOM Saturday (and even a few before and after) that are sure to bring joy to those who receive them. We'll be packing up the quilts to send on their way this week, but we'll try to snag a picture or two of the Quilt mountain so everyone can see how their contributions helped create the huge pile!
Our October QOV meeting will be next Wednesday, October 18th at RQ. We have several quilts that need labels sewn on before our presentation in November so that will be a focus at next week's meeting. Please let us know if you plan to attend and if you can help hand stitch labels. On to the news...

What's New at RQ
Quill by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics has arrived at RQ. This elegant collection features deep purples, blues, and grays with just a hint of pink. 3 Sisters are known for their much loved floral tonal prints and this group definitely hits the mark. We have the whole collection in yardage and fat quarters as well as precuts. Two kits will be available (after we cut them Friday): Candlelight and What if You Fly.
Newly arrived at RQ is Indie Folk by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics. This collection celebrates folklore and has a bit of a bohemian feel with a combination of florals and geometrics. The online pictures make Indie Folk appear a bit drab, but the colors are much more rich in person! We've put together the Folklore Kit (seen above) using the fabrics from Indie Folk. Stop in and see for yourself!
Neutral prints with a pop of yellow and teal is a simple way to describe Fragile by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics. There are so many possibilities for this collection! We have 15 bolts with yardage and fat quarters available as well as precuts. Two fabric kits that have a decidely modern feel to them are available using Fragile: Twisted Geese and Contrasting.
Did You Know?
There are only 73 days left until December 25th (depending on when you read your newsletter there could even be less!). Time to start planning which projects can be realistically finished in time for the holiday season. I always start a project the week before Christmas...I think it's kind of a tradition now. We have books and pattern with great gift ideas for the holidays: table runners, pot holders, pillows, pillowcases, purses, and wallets. These are all small projects that can easily be finished within 73 days :) Start making your list and checking it twice...
