What's New at CQ 7/5/22


Dear Friends,

We are trying to expand our classes, and need input from you!  Let me know what kind of classes you want to see offered!  Instructors: if you are interested in teaching a class at Capital Quilts, please let me know. Already, we have someone who wants to teach a multi-session class on using EQ8, provided we can round up enough students. 

Our first themed event is coming up: the Baby Shower on July 23rd.  In this class, you will make a diaper bag, burp cloths, bibs, and a changing pad!  What a thoughtful gift for new parents.  What other themed events might you like?

Happy Sewing!




Sew stashworthy… Classic yet modern dots and stripes are offered in varying sizes for lots of fun mixing and matching! Offered in 4 popular colors, use as blenders, for binding, or solo!

Create a special quilt for the train collector or enthusiast with this beautifully illustrated and authentically colored collection of all things trains. Themed quilts, novelty apparel and accessories for both the young and young at heart await!


From Kaufman, we have a patriotic collection packed with all things red, white and blue! Spangled features stars, pinwheels and bursts of colorful fireworks in the sky that sparkle thanks to blue glitter accents!


Join Sue Moats and our in-store Quilts of Valor group to work on a quilt on Saturday, July 9th. These quilts are tremendously important to the men and women who serve our country in the military. Help us support our vets by making a Quilt of Valor. The group will make one quilt. All fabric is provided. Just bring your sewing machine, supplies, and lots of energy! The workshop is divided into two shifts; space is available in the afternoon.

Got jelly rolls?  Join Debbie on two consecutive Sundays (July 10 & 17) to make your own braid quilt!  This quilt is easy as pie using either pre-cut 2-1/2" strips or your own 2-1/2 strips of fabric. One jelly roll is enough for baby to king size braids.

This gorgeous 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!
Learn how to make it on Saturday, July 16 at 11:30am.

CQ Cares (Community Sewing Projects)

Help us to provide placemats to Iona House!  We 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.
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 Case 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 kits 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
