News to Use from RQ January 10th
Posted by KJCB on January 10, 2019
It finally feels like January here in Rossville! There were even some snow flurries on Wednesday while running errands. The weather forecasters are predicting accumulating snow this weekend which all quilters should see as a reason to stay in and sew! We still have new fabrics arriving almost daily and you'll soon see the Christmas and holiday fabrics moved from the front of the store (we've already ordered the 2019 Christmas and it's even better than last year's!) and spring flowers moving on to the shelves. On to the news...
Featured Future BOM
Coming to RQ in April 2019 is the Teapot Sampler BOM from Jason Yenter at In the Beginning Fabrics. This 10 month project features 9 appliqued flower bouquets in teapots surrounded by pieced blocks. The teapots come on a pre-printed panel allowing you to focus on appliqueing your flowers. The finished size is approximately 72 1/2" x 84 1/2" and we are offering this quilt as either a BOM project or a full kit. Sign-up today to reserve your spot in this one of a kind quilt!

What's New at RQ
Painted Horse by Chong-a Hwang for Timeles Treasures is "galloping" out of the store even as it arrives. We have a limited number of these striking horse panels remaining despite only being in stock a week! This collection was digitally printed and has amazing colors. The Around the Bend Kit - Multi Colorway (featured above) was designed by Denniele Bohannon and is also available in a Blue Colorway.
Next up we have a sweet Easter themed collection by Kanvas. Some Bunny Loves You features bunnies, chicks, eggs, butterflies, and flowers in soft colors. We have a coordinating panel and Strippies (2 1/2" strips) for all your project needs. Both are used in the No Bunny Like You Quilt Kit (seen above) which is available in pink or blue/aqua.
New batiks from Timeless Treasures have arrived just in time to warm up the winter blues! The Vivid Tonga Batik Collection features a vibrant rainbow of color. We have yardage, fat quarters, Treat Strip Jrs., and Treat Shortcakes in Vivid. Additionally, we have a few kits that use the collection including Rainbow Bracelets and Whirlpool.
