News to Use from RQ February 1st
Posted by KJCB on February 01, 2018
We're headed into the second month of 2018 today! This means a new sale for our 10th Anniversary Celebration which you can read about below. We've also added a new BOM option for those interested in the Cottontail Cottage quilt! The Spicy Spiral Table Runner was so popular we filled both classes in February already so check out the new class offering on Wednesday, February 28th. On to the news...
Featured Future BOMs
Graphic Gems designed by Sarah Maxwell featuring Primo Batiks by Marcus Fabrics will begin in March 2018. This program runs for 9 months and will create a quilt approximately 76" x 87" There are two colorways to choose from: Garnet & Sapphire (above right) or Lapis & Emerald (above left) Create large star blocks and background sections each month before finishing the quilt with a beautiful striped border fabric. Sign-up to reserve your space on the Block of the Month page of the RQ website.
We will be separating the Cottontail Cottage Kit by Bunny Hill Designs into a Block of the Month program for those who may be interested. This 59" x 67" applique and pieced quilt will be broken into a 10 month BOM project that will start in March 2018. Space will be limited as we already have the fabric on hand. Reserve your spot on the BOM Program page of the RQ website today! Still available as a full kit while supplies last.
RQ Turns 10: February is "Flannel and Folderol" Month
February is "Flannel and Folderol" month at RQ to continue our 10th Annviersary Celebration! This month all flannels (including Dapper wovens and Corner of 5th and Fun brushed cottons) are 10% off both in store and online. Flannels make great rag quilts, pajama pants, or quilt backings for just a few crafty ideas with flannel. So what is folderol? You can read about the actual meaning of folderol in this week's Did You Know; however, at RQ it refers to novelty print fabrics that will be 10% off this month. Online shoppers head to the Folderol Novelty Sale Category on the RQ homepage to see what is on sale. Brick and mortar store shoppers: we'll show you where in the store you can find the novelty prints on sale. (Sale pieces may vary.)
Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 10th when most everything (some exclusions apply) will be 10% off both in store and online. Then, grab your RQ Anniversary Canvas Tote Bag and come in on Tuesday, February 20th for 10% most everything (some exclusions apply) you can fit in your canvas tote.

What's New at RQ
Do you see the sweet faces looking back at you in the quilt above? If not, look again...see them now? Catnip by Gingiber for Moda Fabrics features the all-time favorite feline. We have the one yard panel with large and small cats for use with the coordinates. Even if you aren't a fan of the feline, the prints in Catnip are neutral colors and would work well in most projects. The Hidden Kitten Kit (seen above) combines prints from light to dark to create the fun cat faces.

Cool green shade, deep blue waters, elegant purple flowers, soft sands, and light green grass are all included. Holly Taylor's collections always go fast and we have limited quantities of this collection so don't delay, order today!

Folderol (pronounced fol-de-rol) is defined as a trifle, ornament, or accessory. The first known usage of the word was 1820. During the month of February at RQ, folderol will be defined as "novelty prints" that can be used in a variety of projects.
