Both still have spaces available if you're interested in joining! Night Watchman Full Kits have shipped this week! (Please remember we announced previously that My Redwork Garden BOM will not be starting until October. Due to the automated credit card system, participants will still be charged this month, but won't be charged in month 12.) This month's BOM Challenge is to bring a panel wall hanging that will fit a door to be donated to a local senior health center. See you this weekend!
BOM by Mail Participants: Your packets will begin shipping on Monday, September 9th (the Monday following the 1st Saturday).
What's New at RQ
Bring the sunshine into your sewing room with Soleil Tonga Batiks by Daniela Stout for Timeless Treasures. This beautiful collection of blue and yellow batiks is sure to brighten your next project! The Starburst Soleil Kit (featured above) is a free pattern found on Timeless Treasures' website using these batiks. Additional quilts designed by Daniela Stout using Tonga Treat Strip Jrs are also available on the RQ website. Finally, there is still space in the Saint Tropez BOM program that uses these blue and yellow batiks created by Cozy Quilts!
Wonder by Kate and Birdie for Moda Fabrics is now available at RQ. The soft color palette is great for nursery quilts and projects. Be sure to check out the double border stripe which is available in pink, mint, or taupe. The Wonder Project Sheet features two baby quilts that can be made from one layer cake (see above)! Simply add a finishing kit for one or both quilts to maximize the fabric in your Wonder Layer Cake.
Hot off the delivery truck this week is Farm Sweet Farm by The Kanvas Studio. This collection features the popular "farmstyle" look for your home decor. The panel (featured above) sums up all the feelings found at home on the farm. A deep red and dark teal add a pop of color to the otherwise neutral color palette. Be sure to take a look at the Farm Life quilt kit which uses all the coordinates we have in stock.

Did You Know?
You can cut approximately 640 - 2 1/2" squares from a jelly roll. Careful cutting leads to 16 squares per strip with 40 strips in a jelly roll. If you love to quilt or sew with small pieces, consider cutting your leftover jelly roll strips up into squares for your next project.
