RQ Turns 10: February is "Flannel and Folderol" Month

This month all flannels (including Dapper wovens (above) 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. At RQ folderol 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.)

What's New at RQ
Lilac Ridge by Jan Patek for Moda Fabrics has hit it out of the park with her interpretation of lilacs in the spring. Purple, green, and brown are a classic color combination, but with a pop of dark red and soft pink look what you can create! A variety of projects featuring applique and piecing are available at RQ. Sampler Spree (featured above) finishes at approximately 67" x 89" while Linda's Lilacs and 101 Lilac Place are smaller projects. Not an appliquer? Grab a jelly roll, layer cake, charm pack, or mini charm and create your own project!
Kinder by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics has arrived at RQ this week. These sweet prints have a "kindergarten" theme from the reading circle to an apple for the teacher. Choose from two alphabet prints on either an orange or pink background. These would make great pencil pouches or other gifts for teachers and students alike!
Soft and calming are the best words to describe this new collection by Nancy Rink Designs. Sea Glass fom Marcus Fabrics features florals, pebbles, words, triangles, and stripes to name a few prints. Nancy has described a beautiful quilt using these fabrics that will be available as soon as the pattern arrives. Reserve your Looking Glass Kit today.
