November QuiltyBox Gift-Away in a Hurry!

Hurry Hurry!  November is almost over!

I returned home last evening to find my November Quilty Box sitting on the table beckoning me to OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!

And I did!

Oh my goodness!!  It’s got Tula Pink, a fun Clam Up zipper tote pattern, the beautiful zipper included that perfectly matches the fabric in this bundle!

Even the liner fabric is included – and I’m sure this will be enough to make MULTIPLE bags as gifts for family and friends.  Whoowhoooo!

And since November is ticking quickly away – we better get on this!


Oooh, look at these goodies!

What is a Quilty Box?

Here are some highlights to keep in mind:
  • 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
  • We will be using the hashtags #QuiltyBox and #GetQuilty
Your support is appreciated. If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to contact me.

Get Quilty!

Front and Center – 8 Fat Quarters of Tula Pink’s ZUMA!


Oh, I can’t wait to play!!


The Clam Up Pattern, and liner fabric
and matching zipper byAnnie.com!

I also love that a chart of all of their zipper colors is included so you can order them up to match whatever you have going.

The small spool of aurifil thread will match the zipper and compliment the fabric in the Tula Pink Zuma bundle.

English Paper Piecing How To!

If you’ve always wanted to try y our hand at English Paper Piecing Hexagons, there is a great photo tutorial in the Bundles of Inspiration magazine to get you started.  Can’t you image yourself tucked into your favorite stitching chair warm and cozy this winter, stitching quietly away to whatever suits your fancy on TV? 

Let’s face it – It’s dark EARLY EARLY in the winter where I live, and my body clock says “Pajama time is 2 hours past dark time” Which means by 7pm, I’m ready to curl up and stitch! 

We are going to offer up BOTH the November Quilty Box and the Quilty Box MINI by drawing for 2 winners! 

Let’s Do This!

As we also have other things going on (Part 2 of Good Fortune on FRIDAY!) This is a rapid-fire Gift-Away!

I’m leaving the entries open until 6am Eastern on Sunday, December 2nd.  I’ll be posting our two winners in that morning’s post.

Good luck everyone!


Digital patterns 25% off through TODAY!

Our Cyber Monday Sale-a-bration continues with all digital patterns at 25% off using code DIGITAL25 at purchase!  This is your chance to stock up on the patterns for quilts you’ve always wanted to make – including my new Hunter’s String Star pattern and Punkin’ Patch Table Runner pattern! Offer closes tonight at midnight EASTERN.

Of course, those who have pre-ordered String Frenzy in wave 1 or 2 have already received their Hunter’s String Star FREE!  

If you want it free – be watching for the next Pre-Order round of 500 copies to go live a few days down the road.  

Remember, we are doing Pre-Orders in waves so that I can stay somewhat on top of them instead of being 4,000 orders behind and people being upset that their orders weren’t shipped fast enough.  (I am one person with part-time family help, not Amazon!)  Books should arrive by Friday and I can start the shipping of the 1,000 copies that were sold during waves 1 and 2.

Also – ALL of my earlier titles are on sale for the low blowout price of $19.99 each.  If there are any titles you are missing in your quilting library, now is the time to snatch them up in the Quiltville Store!

Each purchase made through my store (backed by your guarantee of patience!) puts us one step closer to the opening of Quiltville Inn!  We are paying for the remodels as we go, not adding more debt beyond the mortgage.  I can’t WAIT to have it ready for retreaters to come play!

Quiltville Quote of the Day -
Indigo a Go-go from String Frenzy!


What’s not to love about indigo blue nine-patches and string snowballs tipped with cheddar?

Today son Jeff and I are hitting the Mail Order Central hard and heavy – we are digging in on all of the orders that DO NOT include String Frenzy to get those out before books arrive -

If you don’t hear from us for a long while, send help! LOL!

Enjoy your Wednesday, everyone!

  2. Congratulations for having Jeff back to help out with the mail order. The demand for landscaping work goes way down when it snows. Good luck on getting a lot of books out and hopefully getting windows in the post office before long.

  3. ooh love that indigo-a-go-go....and the name of the tula pink bundle please? being a seashore gal just gotta have it!

    1. It is in Bonnie's comments, Tula Pink's Zuma bundle.

  4. Wow!! What an awesome giveaway! I've always wanted to learn how to sew a zipper and yes these bags would make a fantastic Christmas gift.

    I've missed the first two waves of book sales but hopefully I can catch the next one BEFORE they sell out!! ~Merri 😆🤞

  5. This month looks really great to me. Hoping for a win someday!!

  6. Looks like a fun Quilty Box. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  7. Totally out of my comfort zone, LOVE THE FABRICS....take time out from your mail flurry to breath...Thanks for the chance to win a fun box.

  8. Thank you for the chance to win. Getting a pattern for the zipper bag may convince me I can install a zipper after all!

  9. Reading your blog brings a smile to my face every time!! Tell your son thanks for me as my ruler order is being "processed". Ok, gotta go check out those digital patterns! Have a joyfully blessed day!!

  10. Looking great..

  11. Hi, Bonnie, I tried to purchase the Punkin' Patch Table Runner pattern this evening (Wednesday) at 11:10 p.m. (Pacific Time) using the DIGITAL25 code as you indicated in your blog today and the code is not usable; message says it has expired when I typed it in. Could not readily find where to send this so I have entered it here.

    1. You waited too long. The code was until midnight EASTERN time.

  12. Bonnie, are you offering String Frenzy as a digital download? Postage overseas is soooooooo expensive. I like to buy digital, keep it on my tablet and save the trees unless it is a pattern template.

    1. That is up to my publisher, not to me.

  13. Love the colors in the November Quilty Box!

  14. Bonnie: I am so glad you got to have your Dad there for Thanksgiving, and you got spend quality time with him. I would love to win the November Gifty Box's, but I am sure whoever wins them feels the same way. I Love the colors and patterns in the new Tula Pink Zuma fabrics! FQs are just the right size to make a bunch of little bags!

    Thank You for everything you do for us!
