What's New at RQ
Shabby chic and delicate florals are to be found in Roslyn by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics. We have six skus in stock that are used to create the Rose Garden quilt kit (featured above). The small floral prints would make the sweetest dresses for a child or a child's favorite doll!
Night Song by Felicia Regina of I am Luna Sol for Windham Fabrics is now at RQ. This mini-collecton features prepackaged kits to make small projects including the Timberwolf Tote (seen above)! Prints include dark forests, charming wolves, and moonlit nights. Be sure to take a look at the Nocture Mini Quilt Kit that features English Paper Piecing hexagons!
Art District by AGF Studio is the newest Fusions Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics. Their description best describes this eclectic collection: "Bright colors and eye-catching designs bring the streets of Art District alive. Most countries in the world share a district perfect for a stroll while enjoying an ice cream cone and admiring the art with the occasional cats roaming around." Love the fabrics, but not sure how to put them in a quilt together? Take a look at the Street Signs Kit that uses the prints and Pure Elements solids in a unique shape!
