What's New at CQ 2/13/2024


Dear Friends,

We still have room in both the Roam Block of the Month and in the Area 51 UFO Club. While you can't enroll online anymore, just email us or give us a call. 

Don't want to use the Roam kit fabrics? We'll let you use your own; just join the club and purchase the pattern.

Area 51 is FREE to join, and offers you the opportunity to earn incentive discounts and other goodies!


Happy Sewing!


ps. Every winter, ByAnnie' runs a Local Quilt Shop Contest, created to highlight the efforts of local quilt shops and provide the general public an opportunity to show their appreciation. We encourage you to vote for your favorite at, and hope that it's Capital Quilts! Voting ends February 29th.


New from Latifah Saafir is the Molehills template and pattern! The Molehills Quilt pattern will take you on a fun exploration in curved piecing. You can easily find your own voice in this pattern. It includes multiple variations including full fan, pieced fans and pieced arcs. It also includes a number of fun bonus piecing variations.  We got in a few of her other fun patterns as well. 

FlexiFuse is the ultimate fusible web, vetted by professional quilters and avid crafters alike. This paper backed fusible creates a durable bond while preserving your material’s soft and malleable nature. Its specific formulation provides smooth stitching with no needle gumming. FlexiFuse is perfect for all your quilting, home decor, and paper crafts.

Cottage Cloth by Renee Nanneman for Andover fabrics is a beautiful, color drenched blender with a nubby, linen-like look. You can find all 24 bolts in the color walls. Oh, and there IS a free pattern!

Rosy Deco from Cloud 9 is just what its name implies. Soft florals and art deco motifs lend sophistication to this coral and green collection.

The Gidget II from Arrow Sewing is a reliable, heavy-duty sewing table designed for quick set-up and easy storage! Gidget II features a 2-position manual sewing lift, steel locking legs, a built-in measuring decal and 2 durable wheels. This is the ultimate retreat table! During February, you can purchase one for yourself for only $239!




Our next Open Sew is scheduled for Thursday, 2/15 at noon. Come on in for sewing time away from household distractions.

On February 17th, gather up all your unfinished sewing and bring it to Capital Quilts.  Enjoy time you can dedicate to getting those projects DONE!  Kat will be here to offer suggestions, guidance, and support.

Hand quilting is a time-honored tradition, with beautiful results. Laurie will teach you the basics on Friday, 2/23.

Looking to longarm your own quilts? We currently have openings for Getting Started: The Handi Quilter Longarm Machine with Cynthia on 2/27.

Put your walking foot to work and watch it travel miles and miles of stitching! Learn the basics of using your walking foot by making nine sample blocks on Saturday, 3/2.

CQ Cares (Community Sewing Projects)

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

We 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
