What's New at RQ
Americana and patriotic all rolled into one collection! Land that I Love by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics has flag-draped farm animals, stars of various sizes, barn siding, plaids, flags, and stripes. The panel is available in two colorways and features six themed squares each. In addition to the fabric yardage, we have jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs in stock. There are also adorable kits using this collection!
Time to think summer with this nautical themed collection from Windham Fabrics. Fresh Catch features lobster, fish, and anchor prints. Great pieces for kitchen or home decor! The four prints in the collection are combined with Palette basics to create the Sail Away Kit (seen above). The free pattern (available on Windham Fabrics' website) features applique and traditional piecing.
Three new Tonga Batik Extra Wide Backings are now in stock from Timeless Treasures. These batik backings are approximately 106" wide and have an amazing feel! The multi-colored flower on light background (B6640 Flower, left) will coordinate nicely with many different quilt tops. Next is the jewel colored batik on a deep green shaded background (B6649 Posey, top right). Lastly, the leafy navy batik (B6931 Navy, bottom right) would work with many projects!
