News to Use September 28th
Posted by KJCB on September 28, 2017
I'm a quilter on a mission. My Quilting Adventure Blog challenge comes to an end in approximately two weeks. I am a bit behind my goal of one quilt a week for a year (to say the least), but I have four finished quilts to add to the blog this weekend and hope to quilt a few more tops over the next few days. Wait until Monday and then head over to the RQ Blog to read about my newest quilt finishes...when I reach Week 52 I'll have another giveaway to celebrate!
Just a reminder that you have one more week to finish up any quilts you would like to donate to victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston. We are collecting quilts until October 7th and then will send them down to Houston for distribution. A special shout out and thank you for the quilts we received all the way from California! Our RQ Family stretches across the country (and even to some corners of the world) and we appreciate your willingness to support our efforts to support others! Thank you! On to the news...
Featured Future BOM
Hot off the presses we have a new BOM project coming to RQ in January 2018! Tranquility by Wing and a Prayer Designs features 15 printed cottons with the essence of batiks to create the beautiful quilt above. Finished size is approximately 106" square. Tranquility will be available as a 12-month BOM program or as a full kit. Read more details and then sign-up to reserve your spot on the RQ website.

What's New at RQ
This collection actually was released last year; however, we had reserved these skus for those participating in the Fern Hill BOM. The remaining yardage is now available to all! Fern Hill by Jan Patek for Moda Fabrics features traditional prints in reds, greens, and dark navy. Check out those large plaids, those could be fun in the right project! Red, green, tan, and navy coordinating tonals are also available with Fern Hill.
Into the Woods by The Henley Studio for Andover Fabrics has just arrived at RQ. The earthy tones of this collection feature country scenes, rabbits, trees, leaves, and floral sprigs. Visit the RQ website or come in the store to see the detail in these prints! The kit featured above using Into the Woods is Woodland Footpath and finishes at approximately 56" x 80"
One last winter themed collection is now out on the shelves at RQ. Merry Christmas! by David Walker for FreeSpirit has the cutest prints for the entire winter season. Tossed penguins, snowflakes, winter birds, pine trees, and Santa Claus are included in this group. Merry Christmas has a free pattern to make a quilt top with appliqued trees and presents, called the Holiday Surprises Kit.
Did You Know?
Fat quarters are approximately 18" x 22" Two fat quarters equal 1/2 yard of fabric and four fat quarters equal 1 yard of fabric. At RQ, we cut our own fat quarters off the bolt when a new collection arrives. We offer fat quarters in most all regular width flat cotton fabrics (exceptions are large border stripes or fabric prints with large repeats). Our fat quarter bundles are cut and tied in shop unless they are designated otherwise. The number of fat quarters can change in a bundle as we sell out of bolts in a collection.
