Dream by Jill McDonald for Windham Fabrics has arrived at RQ. This collection brings our first fabric milestone mat! This 54" x 42" fabric panel is perfect for creating a fun and whimsical mat to be used in a baby's monthly photo shoots. The coordinating pillow panel features 4 pillow fronts that continue the theme found in the milestone mat. Additionally, we have four prints from the Dream collection for backings and bindings on the panels.
Freshly arrived at RQ is the newest offering from French General and Moda Fabrics: Le Beau Papillon. Shades of reds and blue play together in this collection with traditional prints. We'll be cutting fat quarters and kit preorders on Thursday! There are a variety of kits available including the Le Beau Papillon Kit (featured above). We're still awaiting the arrival of precuts: jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs and expect them in February.
