October Quilty Box Gift-Away!

This little goodie box arrived on my doorstep while I was teaching up in New York last week, and I thought it would be just perfect to let it loose as a gift-away here on the blog while I’m in China!

The October Quilty Box is curated by none other than Leah Day, someone I love and admire for all of the wonderful fun she is!

If this box is full of Leah Goodies, I want one!

What is a Quilty Box?

  • 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
  • Latifah  Saafir is November’s box girl!  www.latifahsaafirstudios.com.
  • We will be using the hashtags #QuiltyBox and #GetQuilty
I am all about having 5% going to Quilts for Kids while I get a bunch of quilty goodness to play with in every box!


I hope you are feeling Green this month!


Ooooooh yeah!


Two one yard cuts of Leah’s Heart Medallion!


Blue and Green!

Each piece features 12 beautiful medallion designs to cut, frame, piece, stitch as you wish!


You’ll also get pattern instructions for how to turn your beautiful medallions into THIS quilt!

Also included are two matching spools of Isacord thread, perfect for machine quilting.


Tutu FUN!

Along with the self-threading needles from Clover, perfect for burying thread tails while machine quilting, and a sample packet of soak for keeping fine fabrics fresh, our winner will receive a very cool mason jar caddy which turns any notion mess into this:

Use your own fabric in the pin holder top to match your d├ęcor!


I enjoyed reading more about Leah and her business!


THIS girl knows just how to focus on what is important.

SO who wants this box?

I'll be drawing for our winner on October 30th, when I return from China!


And while you are busy entering here, don’t forget that while I am gone, ALL DIGITAL PATTERNS in the Quiltville Store are 25% off using coupon code DIGITAL25 at purchase.

Code must be used at time of purchase. 

I’m heading back to the Seattle airport in a bit, gathering at our gate with the folks flying to Beijing with me today.  I’m so excited about spending the next 9 days with this group.  We’ve waited a long time.  Yep.  It’s going to be epic!

Things to remember – my time zones will be completely upside down.  I’ll post when I CAN post, so you might be reading me in the evening instead of the morning.  If I can’t post, We’ll pick up where we were when we left off.

Set yourself a challenge to work on some UFOs while I’m gone – you can let me know how you did when I get back!
