July Quilty Box Give-Away!

I am off to Montana!

So to keep you busy while I’m winging my way westward (Greensboro to LaGuardia to Minneapolis to Bozeman?!?!) I’m holding up the July Quilty Box for ONE lucky winner to grab!

There are such great goodies in here from patterns to fabric to thread and a binding tool….someone is going to be VERY happy with this haul!

I LOVE the fact that 5% of the profits go to Quilts for Kids!  It’s a win win all the way around!
Let’s look closer at this box:
Oh goodness!

Picked just for you by this month’s curator, Kathleen Starr!
Kathleen’s Story!
Check out Kathleen’s website at Starrfabrics.com and learn about her 30+ years of hand dying fabric.

She says “The joy of creating a unique one-of-a-kind piece of fabric fed my quilting addiction and creative spirit.  I was completely hooked and love creating new colors for each new design.”
Items in this box!
Eight fat 8ths of Starr hand dyed fabric, plus 1 yard neutral!
Superior Threads So fine!
Dreams and Wishes Pattern
Shock Wave Pattern
(The fabric pack is enough to make EITHER of these quilts!)
Binding Tool
Let’s start these entries rolling!
I will draw for the winner July 24th, my last night in Montana!  (Yeah, I know, I’ve forgotten before, but this time I set an alarm on my phone!!) 

Good luck, everyone!

I’m looking forward to a week in Montana. I checked. It’s going to be HOT!

But not any hotter than here, and the lack of humidity will be quite nice, and night time temps below 60 degrees will be most welcome!  It was a shock coming back from Seattle and Alaska!

I’ve packed a couple of on-the-road projects and will be working on those in between my time with the Bozeman and Helena guilds.

And I’ll be in touch as often as I can!


Quiltville Quote of the Day.

No matter what color of font I tried, this quilt is so vibrant it made it a bit hard to read. All of those melons are string pieced, and each is appliqued on to a black background square and surrounded by a myriad of different embroidery stitches – a not so crazy crazy quilt!

And I agree with the statement.  Thank you, Jimmy Carter.

Have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!

  7. Have a great time in Bozeman! One of my bestest quilty buddies will be in both the Star Struck and My Blue Heaven workshops. Her name is Kari A. She's finally diving into scrappiness with both feet, and perhaps could be inspired to take up leaders and enders. Cheers!

  8. I always enjoy reading of your next travel plans, and then go to Google to find all those places. I need to remind myself that NZ is about the same size as Colorado !!! Love the Quilty Box, and Indygo Junction, for August, I have made some bags from their patterns, and they are totally fabulous. Safe Travel Bonnie.
