News to Use from RQ April 4th
Posted by KJCB on April 04, 2019
Congrats to our newest Customer of the Month winners! They have won a $25.00 shopping spree to RQ to be used during the month of April: Grace Ann B., Marcia C., (not the boss!) JoAnn H., and Shirley S. We'll be contacting winners this week if we don't see you first :) On to the news...
April Block of the Month Meeting - April 6th
Our next Block of the Month meeting is this Saturday, April 6th with doors opening at 9:00 a.m. (Please remember that blocks are not available for pickup before the meeting and BOM by mail participants will not be shipped their blocks until after the meeting.) This month's challenge is to bring a project that you have quilted on your own. March was National Quilting Month and we challenged you to try a new quilting technique (or quilt something for the first time!).
This month you will be receiving your final packages for Mineral Matrix and Enchanted Garden. Remaining yardages will be available on Saturday. We will be starting Oh Susanna's Stars BOM (featured above). Space is still available in this program so reserve your seat today! Just another reminder that the Teapot Sampler BOM that was expected to start in April has been pushed back until May due to fabric delays from the manufacturer.
What's New at RQ
Fresh Off the Vine by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics is now on the shelves at RQ. True to the designer's style, this collection features flowers, vines, leaves, and sprigs. The panels feature your favorite seed packets and are used in the Postcards Table Runner Kit. We have yardage, fat quarters, jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs in stock. Be sure to take a closer look at the Fresh Off the Vine Kit (featured above) designed by Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Designs.
Jesus Loves the Little Children by Cindy Sepp for Quilting Treasures is now in stock. The main focus of this group is the one yard panel (seen above). Coordinates include multicolored stripes and child handprints tossed on white.
We're still pulling this collection out of the back room (it's a big group!); however, we're excited to share that it is here! Boro Prints and Wovens by Moda Fabrics combine a favorite color palette with shades of blues and browns. The cotton prints and wovens are used harmoniously in the Bodoko Kits so don't be afraid to mix and match your favorites! At RQ we have jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs of the Boro Prints as well as layer cakes of the Boro Wovens. Additionally, we have coordinating Boro Trim Webbing in indigo, natural, and ivory colors. This 1 1/2" wide strapping is great for purse and tote bag projects!
The newest collection by Tula Pink for FreeSpirit Fabrics has arrived! Pinkerville is an imaginary land with unicorns, lake monsters, butterflies, and owls to name a few. Traditional Tula Pink colors abound in Pinkerville and will work with her previous collections too! In addition to the yardage and fat quarters, we have 10" charm squares and design rolls (2 1/2" wide strips) of Pinkerville in stock and ready to go to a new home!
