February and March BOM News
A reminder to in store BOM participants that we will "catch up" on BOM Bucks at the March meeting. If you had your February blocks and challenge done, you'll still receive BOMs at March's meeting. We'll rely on the honor system, if you tell us they were done you can have a BOM Buck. Remember that you can pick up your blocks anytime during regular hours this month so that you can have your blocks ready for March's meeting.
The challenge for March will be to wear "gear" supporting your favorite college sports team as we will be entering the "March Madness" season! For those participating in the AllPeople Quilt UFO Challenge, number 6 is this month's project to work on. At March's meeting we will be starting Stellar Starburst Tonga Patriotic (featured above) and Tapestry by Wing and a Prayer Designs.

What's New at RQ
How about some warm, earthy tones for our next spring collection? Mazy by Dylan Mierzwinski for Windham Fabrics fits that bill. Gardeners don't have to choose their favorite garden item as there are flowers and vegetables in this collection! Be sure to visit the RQ website to see these prints individually for the amazing detail packed into each piece. We're kitting three patterns using Mazy including Daisy Patch (featured above).
Reveille by Kathy Hall for Andover Fabrics is a new patriotic collection at RQ. Soaring eagles, pinstripes with stars, large stars, tiny stars, and patriotic words are all included in shades of red, blue, cream, and gold. The American Glory Quilt Kit (featured above) is a free pattern that finishes at approximately 72" x 86" which works for QOV quilts!
Check out this digitally printed panel by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics! The focal piece in Interstellar is the astronaut in outer space panel which is approximately 31" x 42" Coordinating prints include planets and galaxies with a variety of stars in multiple colors. The prints are all used in the Space Explorer Kit which makes a lap size quilt. Make it to help celebrate this year's 50th Anniversary of Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon.
