What's New at RQ
The red dragons have arrived and are already HOT HOT HOT! The Dragons collection by In the Beginning Fabrics has been "flying" out of the store and it just arrived late last week! This group features two digitally-printed panels with amazing detail as well as great coordinates. The Dragons Quilt Kit (featured above) uses all the pieces including the border stripe to full advantage. Red not your style? The Blue Fury Dragons will be headed our way in November 2019, stay tuned!
How cute are these new flannels?! Cubby Bear Flannels by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics are now at RQ. Bears, foxes, sloths, and snuggly words are the pieces we have now. These flannels are a great choice for quilt backs and pajama pants!
Winter in Bluebell Wood by Lewis and Irene Fabrics is our newest wintery themed group. Cute woodland critters are found frolicking in the forest in the main focus prints (featured above). The supporting prints are of the same neutral color palette with just a pop of red.
Labor Day Sewing Weekend @ Mill House Retreat Center
Come join RQ at Mill House Retreat Center for a weekend of sewing over Labor Day weekend! We're inviting current (and past) Block of the Month participants to work on their unfinished BOM projects (and a few other UFOs too). What better way to enjoy a long weekend other than staying in to sew on those projects that you haven't had time to finish? Check-in anytime after noon on Friday, August 30th and stay until noon Monday, September 2nd. Find more details on the RQ website. Space will be limited.

Did You Know?
The OESD 2019 Holiday Celebration starts in September and this year's theme is Silver Bells. A machine embroidered quilt, matching ornaments and home decor will be available in this year's design packs. Remember this is your chance to stock up on any OESD product (Isacord threads, stabilizers, OESD design packs, etc.) and receive a free Silver Bells Design pack when you spend $79. What is different this year is that we will have the design packs available each month at RQ instead of shopping online! The Silver Bells Quilt will be available in September, Silver Bells Decor in October, and Silver Bells Ornaments in November. Stay tuned for more details.
