Posted by KJCB on September 19, 2019
National Sew a Jelly Roll Day is finally upon us! This Saturday, September 21st is the day to pull those beautiful rolls off the shelf and turn them into a quilted project. To help inspire your next strip project, we'll have 5 patterns available to download on the RQ website beginning on Saturday. These patterns were created and shared with us by Moda and will not be released until National Sew a Jelly Roll Day! On to the news...

What's New at RQ
We're welcoming a new fabric manufacturer to RQ: Anthology Batiks! We've received our first two collections of Anthology Batiks this month and are highlighting: Starry Night Batiks this week. Starry Night was inspired by the painting of Vincent Van Gogh and the variety of shades of blue found there. We're kitting two projects using Starry Night including Twilight Zone (featured above). Check out the coordinating Lava Batik Solids from Anthology as well!
Our second collection from the Ruby Star Society has arrived: Crescent and coordinates Brushed are now at RQ. This group was designed by Sarah Watts and features two large panels in striking colors. Flowers, owls, unicorns, bears...oh, my! The cotton Brushed companion pieces are great blenders for a variety of projects. Grab a Crescent charm pack or junior layer cake to see all the colors together.
How about a bit of modern in your next Autumn project? Hygge by Rae Ritchie for Dear Stella is a small collection with four focal prints. Woodland critters in scarves, large autumn florals, a mushroom toss, and fall gear are all included. Add a Dash Flow coordinate in warm Autumn colors such as Amber, Almond, or Sage to round out your project. The Shattered Kit (seen above) is a wall hanging sized project that will jump start your Autumn vibe!
