This month's BOM meeting is this Saturday, August 4th with doors opening at 9:00 a.m. and the meeting starting at 9:15 a.m. The challenge for August is to bring school supplies that will be donated locally. School starts next week for the Rossville School District...where did the summer go?!?!
August brings the final month for the Legendary Loves BOM project. Remaining fabric yardage will be available for purchase on Saturday for those participating in the BOM.
New projects starting in August include the Dimensions (featured above) BOM and the Tonga Lush BOM. Both programs still have space available; however, there may be a delayed start date for Tonga Lush based on fabric availability.
We have the 101 Maple Street BOM Quilt by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs in store for one more week! Stop in to see the quilt in person and admire the autumn-themed critters in all their glory.
RQ Turns 10: Beautifully Blooming Batik Bash in August
The start of August means it's time to start a new RQ Anniversary Sale! This month we're featuring one of my personal favorites...Batiks! Darks, lights, brights, neutrals, solids, and prints can all be found in batiks. These hand-dyed beauties often feature amazing shading and depth not found in cotton prints. Visit the Batik Category on the RQ website to see the collections that we have available. In stock batik print yardage is $9.00/yd while Java Blenders (solid-like batiks) are $8.00/yd with 1/2 yard minimum cuts. This sale excludes any out of stock or preorder item as well as batiks that are in current/future BOM programs. Fireside Tonga Batiks by Daniela Stout for Timeless Treasures featured above.
Dates to Remember in August: Friday, August 10th will be 10% off most all items in store and online. No coupon code necessary. No RQ 10th Anniversary Bag required.
This month's RQ 10th Anniversary Canvas Tote Bag Day will be Wednesday, August 22nd when you can receive 10% off your purchase in store with your RQ Bag!
What's New at RQ
Grunge lovers! We have 10 shades of the NEW Grunge Seeing Stars by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics. Your favorite Grunge texture with a hint of a print in the shape of stars across the fabric. Mix and match Grunge Stars with Grunge Basics or your favorite prints!
Another new autumn collection has arrived at RQ. Our Autumn Friends by In the Beginning Fabrics combines the beauty of fall foliage with woodland animals. The panel features six animal portrait squares including birds, bison, fox, deer, and a wolf. The fall foliage border stripe makes an excellent border for the quilt kit (see above) or could be used on its own for a table runner or tote bag.
Stargazer Capsules by Art Gallery Studio is a new nursery collection with a space theme. Featured above is the coordinating panel which has six themed squares across a yard repeat. (The "explore endlessly" square on the left is an enlarged version for you to see detail.) Moons, planets, and stars are all found in the Stargazer coordinates. Be sure to take a look at the Lost in Space Kit which uses the panel squares and coordinates to make a 60" x 70" quilt top.
Upcoming Dates at RQ
August 4th: August BOM Meeting @ 9:00 a.m.
August 15th: QOV Workshop @ RQ 10:00 a.m. with a special presentation being made to a well deserving veteran at 11 a.m.
Did You Know?
We're frequently asked at RQ about prewashing fabrics. I came across an article on the Moda Cutting Table Blog that covers both sides of the "to prewash or not" debate which is worth sharing. The author even touches on whether or not to wash batiks (this month's special) and extra wide backings. Follow the link above to read more.
