What's New at CQ 10/14/2021


Dear Friends,

We're trying to move stuff around to make room for new fabric!  There are some wonderful lines coming in.

We're also looking to schedule small classes geared towards gift items - table runners, placemats, etc.  Please let me know if there is something you'd like to see offered.

All regularly priced Halloween fabric is 25% off through 10/31/21!

Happy Sewing!




Celestial bodies shine bright in the deep sky on a clear night. Stars align, the moon wanes and the rays of the sun stream through the clouds. Orbit from Windham Fabrics is available in a divine palette of plum, royal, dark grey, black and white with hints of shimmering metallic gold. Bonus: you can mix and match with Talisman!

Designed by Ann Lauer, Hooked on Fish is the latest in her fabric menagerie. The collection’s panel features sea turtles, angelfish and more in Ann's signature artistic style and is accompanied by vivacious bubble print, marble texture, and paisley print coordinates.


Amanda Murphy has taken some of her favorite colors from her Cotton Shot collection, and laced them with a shimmering pearlescent overlay to create Cotton Shot Pearl. These basics will lend a touch of sparkle to your projects. 


We have committed to providing placemats for Iona House's meal delivery program, and have a free workshop scheduled for Thursday, 10/21 at 11:30am.  Registration is required.

Learn the ins and outs of the Handi Quilter longarm machines!  Getting Started: The Handi Quilter Longarm offered on 10/21 at 1:30PM is perfect for anyone curious about longarming, or who wants to rent time on our machines. Two spaces are currently available.

The Cotswolds Table Runner would look great in Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's or other holiday fabric as well as colorful florals or batiks - for your own home or as a gift for a friend!  Join Cathy on Friday, 10/22 at 5:30pm to make your version.

You asked, and Jan delivered.  We have a Star Storm Class (via ZOOM) starting Saturday, October 30th.  She's made 20ish of these quilts, so she has plenty of tips!

CQ Cares (Community Sewing Projects)

Capital Quilts will be providing festive placemats for seniors this holiday season. Our customers have generously supported the Capital Quilts Cares program in the past to provide Iona House, a Washington D.C. organization that services over 174 hot meals daily to its clients, with placemats. An in-house workshop will be held Oct 21st at Capital Quilts from 11:30 to 2:00. This is a free workshop. All fabric will be provided but registration is required.

We will also have kits available at the shop, please stop by to pick up one (or two). For those that want to sew from their stash, click on the picture for the beginner-friendly Charm Square Placemats pattern, or you can use your own pattern.

Please return all completed placemats to Capital Quilts by October 30. Thank you for your continued support of the Capital Quilts Cares program. 

We have free pillowcase kits available!  We donate all pillowcases to Ryan's Care for Smiles, who in turn distributes them to children battling serious illness.  Pick one up next time you're in the shop, then complete it and return on your schedule. 

We also have free small kennel quilts available.  These little quilts are sent to shelters who take in pets displaced by natural disaster.  To quilters, they are a great beginner project, a use for leftover fabric, and a place to practice free motion skills.  To use your stash, visit
