News to Use from RQ October 17th
Posted by KJCB on October 17, 2019
We're officially halfway through October (thank goodness because the backroom can't handle too many more fabric deliveries!). Read on to see what's new this week at RQ! On to the news...
Featured Future BOM
Coming to RQ in January 2020 is the House Blend BOM designed by Daniela Stout of Cozy Quilt. The quilt features Sumatra Tonga Batiks from Timeless Treasures and will finish at approximately 92" square. House Blend BOM will be available as a 6-month BOM or a Full Kit. Pull out your Strip Tube or Strip Tube Jr. Ruler for this upcoming BOM. Sign-up today to reserve your spot!
We Have Demos & Previously Owned Machines!
We have previously owned and demo BERNINA Q20 Sit-Down Longarm machines priced to sell! Come in any time and test drive the Q20 we have set-up on our sales floor to try machine quilting on a BERNINA Longarm. The machines include a beautiful and sturdy Koala Cabinet as seen in the photo above (color may vary).
We also have a previously owned BERNINA 765 Special Edition Rose Gold machine packaged with the embroidery module and a BERNINA Stitch Regulator searching for its next home!
How about an entry level machine for travel or a new sewist in the family? We have those available as well!
What's New at RQ
We have a new floral collection from the one-of-a-kind Jackie Robinson! Magnificient Blooms for Benartex Fabrics features the elegant Calla Lily. The panel and coordinating border stripe show off the Calla Lily on a striking dark background. Use the additional prints in the collection (including Wave Texture Basics by Jackie Robinson) to create one of the three Magnificent Blooms Kits such as My Window (featured above). We also have Magnificent Blooms Strip-pies for the 2 1/2" wide strip lovers!
Robin Pickens' newest collection Painted Meadow for Moda Fabrics has arrived just this week! The bright cone flowers are being visited by bees ready for spring. Pinks, greens, and teals are all represented in this group. As usual, Robin has created coordinating patterns that show off her fabrics to their highest potential. A few kits even let you choose your favorite colorway or you can choose the kit that blends all the colors together! Jelly rolls, layer cakes, and charm packs should be in stock next week.
This panel has been around awhile; however, with the winter months approaching we thought it worth another look! City Lights by Abraham Hunter Art Inc. for P & B Textiles features this gorgeous vintage cityscape in the winter. Add the coordinating smaller scenic squares to the shades of blue and yellow textures for a truly unique winter project!

Cake and Cupcake Mix Recipe Cards are a fun way to use your 10" or 5" square packs! We have a variety of the recipe cards available in the store (right inside the front door). We frequently still have people ask what the Recipe Cards are for and how they work. You can learn all about the Recipe Cards on the Moda Blog. They have a brief video tutorial and a variety of quilt patterns that use the different Recipe Cards. Check it out!
