Quilty Box Drawing and Flash Ruler Sale!

I’m taking a break from packing the van, washing clothes, re-packing my suitcase for Sunday’s trip to Georgia on a 3-guild tour to draw for this month’s Quilty Box winners!

We’ll be drawing for TWO lucky folks – someone is going to win the April full-sized Quilty Box curated by Shayla Wolfe.  

A second runner-up winner will be receiving the Quilty Box Mini, a smaller version including charm pack of the same Foundation fabric by Shayla Wolf  for Windham Fabrics.

TWO WINNERS!  And either one could be you!

Let’s get this drawing going!

We topped out at 4513 entries – WOW!


Looking for Marsha Tolley!

You are the winner of the full-sized box!


Maureen with no last name!

The random number generator chose you!

There is an April Quilty Box Mini coming your way.

Ladies, kindly get back to me with your mailing addresses and I’ll have the kind folks at Quilty Box get your goodies out to you.  Be sure to send them a thank you when you receive them!

  • Quilty Box is a monthly subscription box of fun quilting supplies. We 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 $60
  • May's Quilty Box Featured Artist will be Violet Craft

The next Quilty Box will ship around May 11th. Subscribers will need to purchase before May 10th to receive this shipment.

And I look forward to hosting another fabulous gift-away at that time!


Doing some house cleaning!!

Sale ends Sunday, April 29th.

There are a couple of things that have been sitting in inventory a while, and in order to bring some new things in, I’m closing these out!


Itty Bitty 8’s 6.5’’ square


Itty Bitty 8’s 3’’ x 7’’.

The Itty Bitty Eights Rulers designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings feature easy to read 1/8 inch markings. 

The black and white dashed eighth inch markings show on both light and dark fabrics. The dashed 1 inch grid lines ensure accuracy when cutting pieces for miniature quilts. 

Refer to the black diamonds when cutting 1/8 inch strips; the white diamonds when cutting 1/4 inch increments. 

The template slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, our exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts!

These items are 25% off in the Quiltville Store under the Rulers, Notions & Tools category.  Limited to stock on hand, and you MUST use coupon code CG25 when purchasing to redeem. 


My favorite Creative Grids 2 1/2’’ x 6 1/2’’!

I will be keeping these in stock, but am including them in the sale just because you'll want one.  If you don’t have one, now is your time to get one! Also – limited to stock on hand. 

More are on order, but they won’t be available at this sale price once this current batch is gone.

I’m deep into preparing for my trip to Georgia on Sunday morning early.  As we are into the weekend, if you order these just know that they may be shipped AFTER I return home.

Have a wonderful evening, everyone!


  1. Congrats Ladies! Thanks Bonnie for all that you do! I try to read your blog everyday.

  2. I'm a Maureen, but I believe I always have my last name showing when I sign up for a draw...I got really excited for a moment!

  3. And by the way congratulations to both the winners!

  4. Boy do I miss our "words to live by" block this morning. Safe travels Bonnie. Congratulations to winnes.

  5. I think I am the Maureen you are looking for. Is there a way I can send my address more privately?
    mafry46@gmail.com Thank you!

  6. I am hoping that I am the Maureen, but I usually have my last name too. I guess Maureen is a great name for quilters.

  7. I could be Maureen with no last name. What's the best way to contact Bonnie?

  8. I have been thinking about a wheeled computer chair. But other things find a way to use up my mad money each month! LOL, like fabric, a wheeled case for my new machine, fabric, and more fabric!!
