News to Use from RQ December 6th
Posted by KJCB on December 06, 2018
Thanks to everyone who brought stockings and stocking stuffers over the past few weeks! Charlotte and Vicki spent three hours after BOM organizing and stuffing the stockings with all the goodies that were brought by RQ Customers. As always we appreciate your large hearts that help us donate to those who use our local food pantry!
The newsletter is packed full this week so make sure to read every section. In particular make sure to take note that we will be closed December 23rd - 26th so make sure to plan ahead when sending loved ones out for RQ Gift Cards or last minute holiday gifts :)

What's New at RQ
Spring flowers continue to bloom at RQ with the arrival of Carina by Chong-a Hwang for Timeless Treasures. Peonies and anemone flowers are the focus of this bright collection. The coordinating panel would make a beautiful centerpiece as seen in the Carina "Oriental Harmony" Kit. If you're not into panels, use the Carina prints with Viola Basics to create the Bloom and Blossom Quilt (featured above) instead.
This one is for the cat lovers out there! Catnip by Janelle Penner for Windham Fabrics features felines frolicking through the flowers. Cat paw prints in a variety of colors and a fabulous bias stripe round out this collection. The Kinda Pawsome Kit (seen above) designed by Wendy Sheppard uses the Catnip prints and pieces from the panel (available soon).
Sunnyside Up by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics is the next collection newly arrived at RQ. Warm colors abound in this flirty, floral collection. The Sunnyside Up Panel features quilt block square as well as inspirational sayings that are interspersed in the Sunny Sampler Kit (pictured above). We're making kits for three additional projects using this spring-y collection! Jelly rolls, layer cakes, charm packs, and fat quarters are also in stock for Sunnyside Up.
