Quilty Box is a monthly subscription box. They offer plans from $44-48/mo.
5% of the profits of multi-month subscriptions are donated to Quilts for Kids - a non-profit which donates quilts for children in need.
Each month we have 4 or more products (Fabric, patterns, thread, or notions)
Our retail value of the products in the box is always more than $50
Your support is appreciated. If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to contact me.I think the thing that makes me feel the best, besides the fact that these are items I WILL use –is the knowledge that 5% of the proceeds go to help kids in need.

Some things on the blog do become a concern, and while it is all fun and games most of the time, there are times when I feel the need to play Ricky Ricardo and say
This evening I received the following email:
I noticed an advertisement on your blog you might think is a bit inappropriate.
I understand the ads are selected by an Internet advertising company and run there without your involvement, so I'm certainly not having a go at you, I just figured I'd want to know if someone was selling women on my blog (not that I have one).
Below is a screenshot. I'm in Australia, if that helps.Without posting the screen shot for you, I was quite amazed, and astounded and definitely aghast when there, in plain sight were two ads stating “Find the Sweet Asian Woman you were meant to be with.”
The women were not scantily clad, nor was there anything pornographic about the ads, but I had to explain to the person who sent the email that the ads are based on their own personal browsing history, including those in her family who may also use that same computer.
It’s called Algorithms.
It’s the same thing that Facebook uses to place ads on your page, usually of something you have been looking at on eBay, or on Amazon or on any number of sites.
When I was looking for something to replace my fitbit…and searching online, for the next several days all of the things I looked at showed up in the side bar of my blog, on Facebook, everywhere I went – there it was!
Even the Target pajamas followed me around for days….I found it quite funny.
Now I do not find it funny that someone in your household may have looked at ads of “Sweet Asian Women.” But that has nothing to do with me, and there is nothing that I can do to make sure that these things do not pop up on your computer.
Seriously. Have a talk with your family members or anyone who has been using your computer. It’s not me. It’s those who have used YOUR device.
What is showing for me right now are the pro-biotic supplements I looked up yesterday! ((Do you really want to know about my intestinal health!?))
And that is all I have to say on that subject.
Have a good evening, Everyone!
