Red, White & Free Giveaway!


This coming Friday, July 4, is the US Independence Day, or Fourth of July holiday. The QN staff will be out of office on Friday to celebrate, hopefully doing fun things like visiting relatives, having picnics and bar-b-ques, going for hikes, working on our own quilt projects or just generally relaxing. Our giveaway this week should help us all get in the mood: it’s fabric in the colors of the American flag — red, white and blue!

Both fabric lines can be used in their 2015 Piece and Comfort Challenge which begins January 1, 2015 with national winners being announced May 8, 2015. These fabric lines ship in November, 2014. Proceeds from the challenge will benefit the charity USA Cares, helping veterans and military families.
