News to Use from RQ August 15th
Posted by KJCB on August 15, 2019
We're about halfway through August and it stil feels like summer. We're starting to see more quilters/sewists come in the store in search of Autumn/Halloween and Winter/Christmas fabrics for this year's projects (or to finish last year's projects). Currently, the seasonal fabrics are all located at the front of the store to ease your shopping! We have two additional winter collections still on the way from Clothworks otherwise it's all here and out on the floor. Come see what we have! On to the news...
Featured Future BOM
Our newest Block of the Month project from Nancy Rink designs and Marcus Fabrics is Harmony. The finished quilt is approximately 96" x 106 1/2" and has a coordinating 60" wide backing available. The project is anticipated to begin in February 2020 and run for nine months. Laser cut pre-fused applique shapes will be available for purchase separately for the flowers around the lone star center. We're now taking sign-ups on this beauty!
What's New at RQ
Chatham Row by Paula Barnes for Marcus Fabrics is now in stock at RQ! There are 17 skus plus a beautiful border stripe that must be seen in person. These prints work well together or as companions to the reproduction prints already in your stash.
Vanessa of V and Co is at it again with her Ombre Confetti Metallic Dots! We have seventeen new colors in addition to remaining yardage of the 2018 Ombre Confetti Dots. Grab a fat quarter bundle that has one of each of the new skus or a Junior Jelly Roll with 2 1/2" wide strips of each.
If metallic dots aren't your thing, then check out the 20 newest colors of Marbles by Moda Fabric. These prints are great for a blender or a stash builder. Not sure if the colors will match? Grab a Marbles 2019 charm pack and have a swatch of each print on hand!
