The Final Firecracker Sales for 2019

The sale is available both in store and online (sale prices will NOT show at online checkout). Here's what's coming in the next week:

What's New at RQ
The long-awaited Winter Manor by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics has arrived at RQ! This winter themed collection features traditional prints in reds, greens, browns, blacks, and creams. This year's panels feature red winter florals, wreaths, and cardinals on a cream or black background. Winter Manor is supported by a book of the same name by Doug Leko from Antler Quilt Designs. We have several fabric kits available for patterns in the book or contact us for a quote on a specific kit!
Science and mathematics are celebrated in the Big Bang collection by Deborah Edwards for Northcott Fabrics. The main focus print (featured above) covers a variety of topics for the science/math lover. A beaker border stripe and allover print is found with "elemental" prints, atoms, and equations. The collection is supported with coordinating polka dots and a stripe. Be sure to check out the Nerdy Quilt Kit to use al the skus together!
Your favorite moose is at it again! This time Another Moose is Loose from Cheryl Haynes and Benartex for the holiday season. The 2/3 yard panel features the moose as well as a friend in silhouette in the woods. Even if you are not a fan of the moose (but why wouldn't you be???), be sure to check out the coordinates that can add amazing texture to your next holiday project. In addition to the Welcome to the Woods Kit (featured above), we are kitting additional "moosey" projects designed by Cheryl Haynes.
