April Quilty Box Gift-Away!


I’m off to Texas this morning in a flurry of quilts and suitcases, backpack and paraphernalia.

Didn’t I just do this?

The last time it was easier. Throwing the mass of stuff into the van is SO much easier.  And you can take more.  Flying?  I’m shackled by bag capacity and weigh limits.

Do I have all I need?  I hope so!

If not, there is always Target, right?

I have a guild presentation with the Bear Creek Quilters in Keller tonight and a workshop tomorrow, then over to Stitchin’ Heaven for 2 more days of workshops and finally on to Eustace for a quickie retreat appearance for one workshop  -- I’ll be home on MONDAY.

After the longy trip to Alabama, this will feel like a piece of cake and I’ll have some fun doing it too.

So while I’m off to Dallas via Atlanta, let’s throw a Quilty Box Gift-Away!

What is a Quilty Box?

Patrick Claytor, CEO

I love knowing that part of the proceeds go to benefit kids.  To me that is a win/win all the way around!


Oh, the goodies!

This month’s box is curated by none other than Jennifer Moore of Monaluna Organic Fabric!

Monaluna is a small, independent organic fabric company based in Walnut Creek, CA. The company is owned and operated by Jennifer Moore and her husband David Miguelucci, with assistance and inspiration from their young daughter Anabelle.
Monaluna was started in 2010 by Jennifer, a designer and textile artist, out of a desire to bring more sustainable alternatives to the fabric marketplace. "I have always loved sewing and creating with fabric", Jennifer says, "but as I learned about the environmental impacts of fabric production I became committed to making more environmentally-friendly options available to sewists and quilters." The company started small, but has been growing steadily, and is now producing 4-6 new collections per year.


Gorgeous fabrics!

All of the Monaluna collections are printed on premium 100% organic cotton with a high thread-count, which gives them an exceptionally soft and high-quality hand.
Monaluna fabrics are characterized by a graphic and modern style, and are often whimsical and humorous. After years in the children's product market, Jennifer creates designs that are very appropriate for kids, but which can cross over to adult projects as well. 

Sew Many Lovelies!

  • Simple Life Tulip Pattern designed by Jennifer
  • Monaluna charm
  • So Fine #50 thread
  • Flatter Spray by Soak
  • Quilty Box Sticker!


All in one Quilty Box!

I’m looking for one lucky winner!

Our drawing will happen on Sunday evening from retreat in Eustace, Texas!

My thanks to Quilty Box for allowing me the opportunity to offer these beautiful boxes to you!


Quiltville Quote of the Day!

Vintage string Apple Core quilt found in Alabama.

Isn’t this true?  All it takes is 1 stupid thing out of 100 good things to change your mood and throw you for a loop.

Focus on the good things! The small stupid things don't matter.

And with that, I’m off to Texas!  Have a terrific Tuesday, everyone!

  12. My husband and I have been married for over 10 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 21. We’ve been through a lot emotionally together. There were several HUGE fights and painful situations in our marriage, but we always seemed to come out stronger on the other side. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me, I was totally depressed until I found Dr.Todd website online and I ordered for a Love spell. You won’t believe my husband called me at the exact time this spell caster finished his spell work in 48hrs. I was totally amazed! He is wonderful and his spells work so fast.
