News to Use from RQ July 30th
Posted by KJCB on July 30, 2020
Thanks to those who were able to attend our Quilty Yard Sale last Friday! We enjoyed outdoor shopping and were glad to see so much fabric go to new homes. Please note that we continue to offer in-store shopping by appointment ONLY and plan to continue until further notice. Curbside pickup of online orders and curbside drop-off of sewing machines for repair continue as well. Please email: email@example.com to schedule an in-store shopping appointment.
This week's $5.00 per yard Throwback Thursday Sale is Sweet Cherry Wine by Blackbird Designs for Moda Fabrics. Remember to shop early--first come, first served! Follow this link to the "Throwback Thursday" Sale page on the RQ website for all the details! On to the news...
August BOM News
Saturday, August 1st is our next BOM Day! While we are still not ready to open the store for an in person BOM meeting, we are going to try a drive-thru BOM "meeting". On Saturday, August 1st, we'll be at the store from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. for block pickup. Our plan is to have the August blocks and perhaps a few new items displayed outside so you can see what's happening at RQ. Have your July blocks finished because if you show us they're done you can earn BOM Bucks!
While we will not be collecting school supplies this year, we WILL be having a Food Drive for the Rossville Area Food Pantry. Bring two cans or boxes of food or substitute paper products and we will GIVE you either a 1/2 pound grab bag of remnants or a grab bag with 5 fat quarters. Use them for mask making or your next scrappy project and help us fill the shelves for our local Food Pantry.
No store admittance during the drive-thru BOM, but if you have an order in for pick up by Friday at noon, we will do our best to have it ready for you to pick up with your BOM. Mark your calendars, we hope to see you there!
August brings about the end of two BOM programs: Night Watchman (featured above) and Tara. The remaining batik yardage from Night Watchman is listed on the RQ website. Look for the Tara yardages next week. While no new projects are scheduled to start in August, we are expecting to start Squirrelly Girl (newest applique quilt by Bunny Hill) and A Trip Around the Sun (newest by Material Girlfriends) in September as long as fabrics arrive on time.
Featured Future BOM
The newest Tonga Batik BOM by Wing and a Prayer Designs is now available for preorder! Fantasty Tonga BOM was created around the colorful dragonfly print that is the border on this 102" square quilt. We anticipate this project beginning in January 2021. The BOM program will run for 12 months OR you can purchase a full kit to receive all yardage at once. Join today to reserve your spot!
What's New at RQ
Purple is everywhere! Plumberry by Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts for Marcus is now available at RQ. Shades of purple such as lilac, plum, and even dark eggplant are combined with light prints to create a balanced collection. These 19th Century Reproduction pieces are a great addition to your historical stash. We'll have the Nan's Fancy Kit using Plumberry in stock next month!
Journey to America is a new collection from Judie Rothermel and Marcus celebrating the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower voyage. The collection was created in collaboration with OSV Museum and highlights a medallion-style print of the ship. The Guiding Star Kit (featured above) is one of two quilts designed by Sarah Maxwell using this collection. Be sure to check out all the prints of this beautiful line in Judie's signature style.
We have six new novelty prints from Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics. These One of a Kind prints are digitally printed and have amazing detail.
