RQ's 10th Anniversary Celebration Quilt Reveal!
Drum roll please.....Introducing our RQ 10th Anniversary Celebration Quilt designed and pieced by our friend Denniele Bohannon of Louanna Mary Designs! We love the block design and quilt layout created by Denniele in celebration of our 10th Anniversary. We will have the quilt at the RQ Turns 10 Retreat at Farmstead Inn in July and all participants will receive a related item in their goodie bag :) You can visit the Louanna Mary Designs Facebook Page to see more of Denniele's designs and what she's been piecing.

What's New at RQ
Grunge Lovers! We've received 30 NEW colors of Grunge Basics by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics just this week. We weren't anticipating these new colors to arrive until August, but they are here now! With color names such as Bellini, Tiramisu, Antique Rose, Flora, and Whisper, there is a new shade for everyone. Grab a Grunge Basics 2018 Fat Quarter Bundle to receive a piece of each new color to add to your stash! Each of the 30 new colors are labeled with a green tag labeled "New Product" on the RQ website so you can see which pieces have just arrived. :) **We will have jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs; however, they are not expected to arrive at RQ until September.**
The 4th of July is rapidly approaching so we have a patriotic collection to share for the last week of June. Land That I Love by Dan DiPaolo for Clothworks has all the stars, stripes, and red, white, and blue you need for your next Americana or QOV project. The 2/3 yard panel (bottom left picture) features the United States and an American Flag featuring state names in the stripes.
The classical biblical story of the Three Kings has been artistically rendered on this beautifully printed central panel (approximately 34") by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics. Shades of cerulean blue, ruby, emerald, gold, and passion purple with a hint of metallic gold are found in the coordinates to create the Gift of Magi Kit (featured above).
