Traveling Stash is Ready
Well after moving that poor box - it sort of dissintergrated - so I went thru things - a lot of fruits and vegie fabrics, especially fall/pumpkins.
Some odd bits, strips and parts from panels
Various florals from FQ size to yard cuts.
A few pieces of juvinile/baby panels, FQ size and cheater cloth.
Some patriotic fabric (about a yrd. of broad cloth) and pieces from a panel - not sure what fabric content it is, but not 100% cotton.
And way too many books and patterns - it's called traveling stash, not empty your library! This is why the one box had to be split, too much of this instead of fabric.
Some templates and notions.
THIS IS WHAT I CHOSE
The extreemly heavy, large, thick "Think Pink" book just to make room in the box, but I know someone who makes quilts for donation/raffle for the Susan Komen 'For A Cure' and she will put this to good use. The Mini Charmer bag pattern and little stitcher by Bareroots. The Patriotic pieces my Mom will use and removes the non-cotton from the box. All the small pieces and scraps - they will work for me in my tinies - not really useable for anything else. And all the apple prints from the fruit/vegie pile. The baggie of Sip of Summer Charms from CT. And the thread.
WHAT I AM PUTTING IN THE BOX
2 FQs of little heart prints for Valentines, and 2 FQs of spring daisies - spring is around the corner.
A Canston Village little yellow rose print on grey and yellow pin dot - 1 yrd each. (or more)
1 yrd. of 'Make Live' by Sweetwater for Moda.
A strip from a panel - 3 antique cars - great size for pillows. The black is a map of our county - if you can find Schoharie, I'll wave.
This cute owl panel from Timeles Treasure - I love bird fabric, but not seeing me using this.
This lovely panel of 'Coming Home' by Deb Strain for Moda - I had two of these????
I thought the juvenile pile needed adding to, so about 1/4 to 1/2 yrd of some cats, dogs, and paws.
And since I took all the Metler thread - replacing with various color Aurifil and a basic set of Essentials from CT.
RULES FOR ENTERING
*** this is the origin of the box ***
I see this box does not have the rule and guide line sheet that was with the original box, also a log sheet that everyone was to fill in with blogger info that the box passed on to. So I will be making one of those up.
1. You must be an active blogger.
2. When you receive the box, post a blog spot on it's contents, what you took and what you are putting in - in a timely manner.
3. Replace per deim - if you took 4 yrds of fabric, replace it with 4 yrds. of fabric - quilt quality fabric. AND this is a traveling stash - don't empty your library! (lets get some of these books and patterns cleared - if you take one - replace it with a FQ or two)
****AUGG - I forgot - I will post the winner on Jan 26th (Thursday)
Due to postage and customs - can only mail in the United States.
No jumping thru hoops, just leave a comment and good luck,
