What's New at RQ
Winter Village by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics is now at RQ! There are some amazing prints in this new collection including a Nutcracker, snowmen, and winter village scene. Traditional red, green, and cream are accented with BasicGrey's black backgrounds. Four new shades of Grunge are color coordinated to match Winter Village. We have jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs in stock too! Two kits are available using the Winter Village fabrics: Star Fall and Trees and Tops.
Next up: we have Sussex by Nancy Gere for Windham Fabrics. These traditional prints feature charcoal and gray with a pop of rosy red. While beautiful on their own, we will have the Crooked Path Quilt Kit available as soon as the pattern is completed. Fat quarters and yardage available at RQ now.
Love from Paris by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics has brought a bit of France y[toQ. Eiffel Towers, fleur-de-lis, dramatic damasks, keys to the city, and an allover Parisian print round out the pieces to be found at RQ. Use the prints to make the Heart of Paris Quilt designed by Wendy Sheppard. We've been busy putting Christmas/holiday fabric out on the shelves so this one is still in back, but it is here!
