We have this month's RQ Customer of the Month winners to announce as well. Congratulations to Vicki C., Liz D., Suzanne G., and Maryanna S! You all have won a $25.00 shopping spree to RQ to use during the month of January. Happy shopping! On to the news...
January Block of the Month Meeting
Due to the expected Arctic temperatures this weekend, we will NOT be holding a formal BOM meeting on Saturday, January 6th. BOM members can still come pick up their blocks on Saturday or any time after that. No BOM Bucks will be passed out; however, you can earn double BOM Bucks at the February meeting! (Assuming we don't have another arctic blast!) This month's challenge of filling out your AllPeople Quilt UFO Challenge form will be pushed back to February's challenge (stay in your warm cozy sewing room Saturday and work on those darn UFOs!).
We have two new BOM programs starting in January: Tranquility (quilt featured above) and Bristle Creek Farmhouse. Both of these quilt projects still have space available. January also brings an end to the Gooseberry Sampler BOM project. We have some Gooseberry Lane yardage available for those in need of a backing. If you're still looking for a new BOM project in 2018, we have fabric samples of Cadence Court, Enchanted Garden, Graphic Gems, and Painter's Garden now at RQ for you to view in person!

What's New at RQ
One of the first collections to come out of the back room for 2018 is: The Dress by Laura Heine for FreeSpirit Fabrics. Are you familiar with the beautiful collage quilt patterns by Laura Heine of Fiberworks? Her first fabric collection is reminiscent of the colors and prints found in many of her patterns. The focal print of The Dress is the panel (seen center above). Use the panel and coordinating prints to create the Fashion Show Kit above.
Project Red by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics is here to warm up 2018 at RQ. Red, whites, and tans/taupes make a fun color palette for your next project. Geometrics, words, and florals are just a few prints that are available. Jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs are now in stock as well. Grab one while they're RED hot!
Who is ready for another great stuffed toy from Stacy Iest Hsu? Woof Woof Meow for Moda Fabrics features two stuffed animal panels: cat/kitten (bottom) or dog/puppy (top). However, there is more to this collection than the panels! The coordinating prints include animals, yarn, bones, and paw prints. How about a jelly roll or charm pack to make a doll blanket for your stuffed cat/dog?!?
