News to Use from RQ February 6th
Posted by KJCB on February 06, 2020
As I write this week's newsletter, it is snowing heavily in Rossville. Mother Nature decided to remind us that it is still winter in Indiana even though we had sunshine and highs in the upper 50s on this past Sunday! Remember to check our social media for updates on whether or not we close or postpone classes due to inclement weather or give us a call before you head out to see us 765.379.2900.
Congrats to our newest Customer of the Month Winners: Jane B., JoAnn B., Patty N., and Carol P.! They have each won a $25.00 shopping spree at RQ during the month of February. We will be calling the winners this week to confirm your winnings!
This week's TBT collection is Amethyst by Barb Tourtillotte for Clothworks Fabrics. This beautiful floral collection features hydrangeas ready to bloom for Spring. Follow this link to the "Throwback Thursday" Sale page on the RQ website for all the details! On to the news...
Challenge for March BOM
If you were at the February BOM meeting last week you know that we didn't have a challenge picked out for March. So here's your official notice of March's BOM Challenge. Be sure to tell your BOM buddies to help us spread the word! Since March is the start of Spring and frequently includes time off for "Spring Break" for many, bring in an item that you've made (sewn, quilted, embroidered, crocheted, etc.) that could be used on your dream/realistic Spring Break adventure.
What's New at RQ
Jungle Friends by Makower UK and Andover Fabrics has arrived at RQ. This fun collection features animals of the jungle including the large panel bordered by an elephant parade. There is also an animal alphabet print that could be used in so many ways! All the pieces are used together to create the quilt kit seen above.
Playground is the second collection by Dylan Mierzwinski for Windham to arrive at RQ. Play hide and seek in the flowers or swing from a cloud as your inner child takes over! Coordinating florals, stars, and animals round out this collection in its unique color palette. Grab a fat quarter bundle for a little bit of the whole collection and let your imagination explore!
The Shimmer collection by Deborah Edwards for Northcott arrived at RQ at the end of 2019 and missed its turn in the newsletter! The group features prints in shades of green, purple, red, black, and tan/cream. A bit of "shimmer" is brought to the collection with just a touch of metallic highlights. Additionally, the Shimmer Radiance coordinates are sprinkled allover with "shimmer" in gold or silver.

Did You Know?
Moda has announced the 2020 Grunge Contest in celebration of their 45th Anniversary! We are excited to participate and look forward to our shop entries arriving later this year. All of the details are available on the Moda Blog but in a nutshell...you must create an original work completely out of Grunge and submit it to your local quilt shop for voting beginning in September 2020. To help jump start your project, we have a basket of precut 1/2 yards of Grunge to shop in the store! Visit our Grunge Basics page on the RQ website to see colors we carry.
