News to use from RQ March 7th
Posted by KJCB on March 07, 2019
The day is finally here. Today, Thursday, March 7th, we welcome BERNINA Ambassador and quilting instructor Amanda Murphy to RQ! We are thrilled to have Amanda at RQ to share her quilting knowledge with our customers and look forward to three days of quilting! This week's newsletter is brief; however, there is a reminder below about the AMAZING offers from BERNINA during National Quilting Month in March. On to the news...
What's New at RQ
Inspirations for Living by Thomas Kinkade for Benartex Fabrics has finally arrived at RQ! The panel features eight squares with traditional scenes by painter Thomas Kinkade. There is also an allover print of Kinkade's beautiful cottage scenes. The Foxglove Cottage Kit (featured above) uses the panel and Stone Cottage coordinates for a 36" x 53" finished project.
The newest stuffed toys from Stacy Iest Hsu are now available. Best Friends Forever features all your friends for play! Her traditional yard panel has pieces for four dolls (approx. 15" tall) with coordinating animal friends and crossbody bags. New to this collection is the 65" x 60" digitally printed panel with a dollhouse, 4 miniature dolls, and their furry pets. Visit the RQ website to see a photo of the dollhouse stitched together. Additionally, we have two bolts of coordinating fabric for even more fun.
Spring is not yet in the air, but it's time to think about fall projects...or at least we can plan for those last minute fall ideas! Thankful by Amanda Murphy for Benartex is our first autumn themed collection for 2019. The fresh colors give a modern feel to a more "traditional" time of the year. In addition to the 18 skus, Amanda has created a panel that will be the perfect centerpiece to your fall decor. Look for kits using Thankful to be added to the RQ website next week.

Did You Know?
Rulerwork quilting is not only for longarm quilters anymore! We're devoting two days with Amanda Murphy to rulerwork quilting. If you're new to this idea, you can view a brief video on using the #72 Rulerwork foot on BERNINA machines to do rulerwork quilting on a domestic machine.
