What's New at RQ
Magic Tonga Batiks by Timeless Treasures are now out on the shelf at RQ. These purple beauties are even more stunning in person and will make your next purple project pop! Take a look at the Facets Kit designed by Heidi Pridemore that uses the Magic Tonga Batiks. In addtion to yardage and fat quarters, we have Tonga Treat Strip Jrs. (2 1/2" strips) and Shortcakes (10" squares) in stock. How about a purple Jelly Roll Rug using Magic Tonga?!?!
Who is ready for summer at the beach? Beach House by Dan DiPaolo for Clothworks is perfect for "beach decor." The soft color palette reflects elements of nature: sand, sky, water, and beach grass. The collection features a panel and border stripe for quick table runner or wall hanging projects. We're kitting two quilt projects including the Beachcomber throw (featured above) and the Beach House Downtown quilt.
We're excited to welcome a new fabric manufacturer to RQ: Lewis and Irene Fabrics! They are a British company and it is fitting that our first collection from them is Britannia. See the sights of London including Big Ben clock faces, Union Jack hearts, metallic crowns, and the red-coated guards of Buckingham Palace. Check out the free pattern that uses prints from this collection to make a lap size quilt!
Can you use a little more zen in your life? Be Mindful by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics is bringing that zen to fabric. These neutral colored pieces feature words of comfort, friendship, and hope. Mix and match with your favorite bright prints for a pop of color.
