News to Use from RQ January 17th
Posted by KJCB on January 17, 2019
We worked all day Wednesday on moving the spring flowers into the front of the store....just in time for more snow in Indiana. :) Remember to stay safe on those wintry roads! You can always give us a call before you head out to Rossville if you have any doubt about whether we are open. On to the news...
Featured Future BOM
Coming to RQ in July 2019 is Halloween Figs designed by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts featuring her upcoming collection All Hallow's Eve for Moda Fabrics. This 12 month project features pieced and appliqued blocks of various sizes. The finished size is approximately 66" x 72" and we are offering this quilt as either a BOM project or a full kit. Sign-up today to reserve your spot in this fall-themed quilt!

What's New at RQ
Love Grows by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics has arrived at RQ (and is right inside the front door if you come to see us)! While the prints are great for the upcoming Valentine's Day, they can also be used for other projects such as those who make quilts for Breast Cancer survivors and patients. The prints in stock are used to create the Listen to Your Heart Kit (featured above). We also have charm packs of Love Grows which are perfect for table runners!
Wildflowers IX by Moda is now blooming on the front shelves at RQ. These floral beauties lend themselves to a variety of projects: traditional quilts, landscapes, or collages. We expect the jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs to arrive next week from Moda. What will you make to brighten up the long winter days until spring arrives?
Summer Breeze VI by Moda Fabrics is an alternative take on springtime flowers. How about sticking to a specific color palette of yellow, blue, and white? Summer Breeze is a yearly tradition from Moda and this collection mixes nicely with the previous groups as well. There are only 16 skus in this collection so there will be quite a few duplicates in the jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs.
