What's New at RQ
Merton by Morris and Co. for FreeSpirit Fabrics arrived via UPS on Wednesday! Many have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the second William Morris collection from FreeSpirit ever since Kelmscott arrived in January. Red, aqua, sage, and taupe are the main colors featured in these William Morris prints. We are still waiting on one sku that was delayed so bundles won't be available until that piece arrives; however, you can still reserve your fat quarter or yardage bundle today! Also, be sure to check out the newly added Constellations Kit featuring Merton and Kelmscott.
Little Red Riding Hood is on her way to her grandmother's house via RQ...your favorite childhood story comes to life on fabric by Whistler Studio for Windham Fabrics. The prints suggest a 1930s reproduction influence in their style. Use the prints together to make the Thru the Woods Quilt (featured above).
Wedding planning is in full swing for this year's events and we have five new novelty prints for those wedding and/or anniversary celebrations. I Thee Wed by Kanvas Studios features neutral colored prints with silver glitter accents for a bit of sparkle. Use these prints in a quilt for the happy couple or as part of the wedding decor.
