We've come to the end of February already and we are excited for March to arrive! It is hard to believe that we only have one more week until our quilting event with Amanda Murphy. There is still one spot available in the Circle Rulers class on Friday, March 8th otherwise all classes are full. Students coming to these events: please make sure to review the supply lists available on the RQ Calendar page of the website prior to class. We'll see you next week!!! On to the news...
March BOM Meeting

In March, we will be ending three BOM programs and starting two new projects! Remaining fabrics will be made available for purchase to BOM members participating in Cadence Court, Liberty for All, and My Happy Place. Participating by mail in either of this BOMs? Send us an email or phone call this weekend and we can ship backing with your last block!
We will be starting the newest quilt by Wing and a Prayer Designs: Tapestry (featured above) and Stellar Starburst: Tonga Patriotic by Marilyn Foreman in March. Both programs still have space available for you to join!

What's New at RQ
Cheeky by Urban Chiks for Moda Fabrics has arrived at RQ! This collection brings back prints from collections such as "Swell" and adds in some new favorites. Colors include bubblegum pink, blue raspberry, buttercup yellow, and stem green. We have yardage and fat quarters available now while we expect the jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs to arrive next week.
Two very unique pieces by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics are now in stock at RQ. Description from Windham: "Our unique Kantha is two-ply with simple, hand embroidered running stitches throughout. Embroiderers of this two-layer cotton fabric do not use hoops or frames which gives the fabric a wavy, slightly wrinkled effect. You can use our Kantha fabric for a variety of projects: quilts, bags, table toppers, pillow covers, jackets and even upholstery! Save the scraps to use as patches for jackets and jeans. The possibilities are endless!" Stop in to see these pieces in person. Quantities are limited.
Another spring-y collection is in the house at RQ. Kaleidoscope by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics is all a "flutter." Butterflies, florals, dots, and linear coordinates are all available. Use the pieces together to create the uniquely shaped blocks in the Prismatic quilt kit!

Did You Know?
Many fabric manufacturers have had difficulties with fabric collections arriving when expected during the past few months. When we list a fabric group for preorder on the Coming Soon! page of the RQ website, the month listed is based on information provided by the manufacturer. We make every effort to update these expected ship months whenever we are informed of a delay by the manufacturer. Feel free to email us and ask for an updated arrival date if you're waiting on a particular item and we will check with the manufacturer. Thank you for your patience!
