BERNINA 125th Anniversary Machines
Have you see the new photos featuring the BERNINA 125th Anniversary machines? The machines feature gold faceplates making them unique in the BERNINA lineup! There will be a limited number of BERNINA 125th Anniversary machines available including the B880 Plus, B790 Plus, and B770QE. Each anniversary machine purchase has a Gift with Purchase Package, worth up to $3600, FULL of themed BERNINA items including: a BERNINA Luggage Set, a gold-plated ruler work foot, the Jubilee Embroidery Design Pack by Amanda Murphy, the 125th Anniversary Quilt Kit, and more (GWP varies based on machine purchased). We expect these machines later this year; however, it's never too early to talk with David about your interest in a BERNINA 125th Anniversary Machine!
July Quilts of Valor Workshop Guest Speaker
A big thank you to special guest Denniele Bohannon of Louanna Mary Designs who came and spoke to our QOV group about her book, Where Poppies Grow. As you may recall from previous newsletters, Denniele designed and pieced our beautiful quilt "Celebrate" for our 10th Anniversary (shown above being held by Denniele and Marcia). In case you missed it last week, here's a recap about Denniele's book:
Where Poppies Grow is based on letters Denniele's great-grandfather sent home from World War I. Remembering Almo, the main quilt, was designed to honor him and those who have served our country. Almo O'Kell served as a medic during World War I and was one of the many soldiers who never came home. His story, told through quilts, can be personalized to tell your family's story.
Featured Future BOM
Another new BOM project is now available for sign-ups. Stargazing designed by Krisanne Watkins features the Aged Muslins by Marcus Fabrics. The depth and texture added to this project is due in large part to the beautiful Aged Muslins! The finished size is approximately 92" x 92" The Stargazing BOM will run for 12 months beginning in September. We do have a backing option available for this program that is listed for preorder. Sign-up now!
RQ Turns 10: Christmas in July
We're down to the last couple weeks of our Christmas in July Sale. There are still many beautiful fabrics available at the sale prices! We have two sales running on Christmas yardage based on when the fabric arrived at RQ. Click the links below to view available yardage online. Half yard minimums apply in store. Last year's Christmas/holiday fabric is all on a table in the classroom for easy shopping (see above)!
Dates to Remember in July: This month's RQ Canvas Tote Bag Day will be Friday, July 27th when you can receive 10% off your purchase in store with your RQ Bag!
What's New at RQ
Over the river and through the woods...This is what comes to mind with Holly Taylor's 2018 holiday collection, Once Upon a Memory for Moda Fabrics. The 2/3 yard panel features a winter countryside scene and six smaller themed blocks. The prints in reds, greens, browns, creams, and whites can be used throughout the winter months. This collection has great pattern support in the form of a book by Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Designs.
Fall Goodness by Cori Dantini for Blend Fabrics is now at RQ. This fun and beautifully created collection features a 3-part panel in addition to the tossed pumpkins and floral sketches. The Happy Fall Kit uses the panel and large square print for a quick finish to enhance your fall decor!
Once you've made your Fall Goodness project look to Cori Dantini's holiday collection, Merry & Bright. This collection has four scenic panel squares that are utilized in the Gift Wrap Kit seen above. Gray has been a popular color the last few years and when combined with red and green creates a unique holiday palette!

Did You Know?
At RQ we cut and package the majority of our fat quarters in store. When a new collection arrives at the store, one of the first things we do is cut fat quarters off the new bolts. We then "bundle" the coordinating fat quarters together and offer them as a Fat Quarter Bundle. We never duplicate or add fat quarters from a different collection into a Fat Quarter Bundle without informing you, our customer :)
