September ‘19 Quilty Box Gift-Away!

What a fabulous Quilty Box I have to Gift-Away to a lucky quilter this month!

Color drives me.  I’m sure it inspires you, too – and this month it’s all about color, delicious color!

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!

I LOVE the fact that 5% of the profits go to Quilts for Kids!  It’s a win win all the way around!

Fabric, templates, tools, thread and PATTERNS!

And don’t forget the Sew Fine thread gloss!

This box has been curated by Libs Elliot!  Libs is a one-of-a-kind quilting artist who meshes traditional with non-traditional for her own personal brand of art, skillfully combining technology and textiles by crafting unique quilts through a programming language known as Processing. Fascinating! 

I absolutely love it when an artist/designer follows their own bliss, instead of what is popular in the industry.  One of a kind rocks!

There is much more to learn about Libs in the Bundles of Inspiration magazine that comes with this month’s Quilty Box.

What’s included this month?

Greatest Hits, Vol 1 Fabric bundle! Libs selected her favorite prints from her Greatest Hits, Vol 1 collection for this month’s box.  Get inspired by the dreamy colors and motifs that are sure to become your favorites as well.  Take a peek:

SO gorgeous!

And they go so well with Lib’s Pocket Change mini quilt – easily cut with the acrylic templates provided in this month’s box.

Also included: Sew Fine Thread Gloss (I’m excited about this stuff! It’s going in my busy bag for hand work on the go!) No more tangled, knotted or static-y threads while you are hand sewing!  Libs has created 3 scents.  The one in this box is Orange Lavender.  Yummy!

Hera Marking Tool: The easy to handle tracing spatula of the hera marker allows you to place pressure when marking on fabric.  Perfect for marking quilting and sewing lines.

Aurifil Thread!  My box arrived with a spool of pretty hot pink.

Did you know there is more than one type of Quilty Box that you can subscribe to?  While I’ve shared the Classic box here, there is also a Paper Pieces version!

If you love English Paper Piecing – this is the subscription box for you!

This month’s pattern – All Stars Mini Quilt.

You can expand or hone your English paper piecing skills with a monthly Quilty Box English Paper Piecing subscription in partnership with Paper Pieces.  Each month you’ll receive a charm pack of 5’’ x 5’’ squares, thread, acrylic cutting templates, and the paper foundation pieces for that month’s pattern.  You’ll also receive the Bundles of Inspiration magazine including the pattern for your project, the patterns also included for the Classic Quilty Box quilt of the month, and the Quilty Box Mini pattern of the month. 

You can choose either  month-to-month, a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month subscription.

The Quilty Box Mini includes a full size charm pack from one of the newest fabric collections – the same line as featured in that month’s Classic Quilty B ox.  You’ll also get a spool of thread, a pattern for stitching up your charm pack into something really cute, included in the Bundles of Inspiration magazine along with that month’s designer spotlight and other great info.

This month we are going to draw for TWO winners!  One to receive the full size Classic Quilty Box, and the second – the Quilty Box Mini!

Are you ready to throw your name into the hat?

I will be drawing for our winners on Saturday, September 28th. Good luck, everyone!

Yesterday was spent working at the Quiltville Post Office finishing up the quilting on the Crooked Courthouse Steps quilt.  Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a bit more on how it turned out, so stay tuned!

Quiltville Quote of the Day

Sometimes just getting our minds to shut up is the hardest part. No matter what the mind says, the heart knows best.

(And yes, that one thread hanging down the quilt photo is driving me nuts and there is nothing I can do to fix it at this point.  LOL!)

This is the first String Log Cabin quilt I made as a wall hanging in 2006.

It was also a fun one and I may need to do this variation again as there are still strings-a-plenty around here.  Like never ending strips, scraps and strings.

And that’s not a bad thing at all!

Have a wonderful Monday, everyone!


  1. The fabric in the quilty boxes is gorgeous such lovely vivid colours.
    Is the thread conditioner similar to thread heaven? I use this all the time when doing my epp and find it really helps but this scented one sounds lovely.
    Love and quilty hugs

  2. I don’t get the most recent post everyday, or ever. I get yesterday’s! Is there a setting I need to adjust besides going to the bottom of the blog and clicking on “newer post”

    1. Your best way to stay current is to view my blog directly, every morning. If you wait for a blog reader service like blog lovin, or others - you will not get it until the next day. Likewise, if you wait for email notifications, those only post at the end of the day, anything that has been posted through the day. Just bookmark me and come on over first thing in the morning. I'm usually done posting by 10am eastern time.

    2. Thanks Bonnie. I will do that

  3. The designer looks very intriguing. And circular piecing....something new to me!

  4. I love all of the colors you have picked. Thanks for offering these great giveaways. I love learning all new designs.

  5. Love the quote of the day quilt. I love log cabins. Please bring out your mini quilts you put out in 2006. I love the one your mom has hanging in her kitchen. also love the one on your quilting frame. Enjoy your day.

    1. I am a big fan of mini quilts. I used to make quite a few mini quilts myself. I would love to see Bonnie's minis.

  6. I use Inoreader (https://www.inoreader.com/) and while there is a time delay, I think it's on the order of a couple of hours, not the next day. I don't usually read blogs until late afternoon, but at least one of them posts at various times during the day and Inoreader typically isn't more than a couple of hours behind in showing a post.

  7. Your courthouse steps quilt turned out beautiful. Thanks for the info regarding the Quilty Box options, I'm going to check it out!

  8. Sweet and generous give away
    Good luck to all participants.
    Your quilt on the long arm is gonna be beautiful

  9. Love your courthouse steps, so vivid and the quilting is my favorite pattern.

  10. Love your courthouse steps quilt, so vivid and my favorite quilting design.

  11. Love that court house steps you whipped up

  12. Libs Elliot is an awesome designer! I love her modern take on quilting, the saturated colours or B+W of her fabrics, and her edgy style. Thanks for including her in Quilty Box!

  13. Funny that one of your quilt boxes features curved pieces with templates! This morning I was watching a YouTube video about that very same technique and I was thinking I should do that technique again. This must be a sign that I should!

  14. Throw my hat in the ring for your give-away drawing. Thank you for your give-aways. I'm hoping to win one day. I read your posts every morning because they arrive before I get up (I love to sleep in.) They are a great way to start my day.

  15. Your wonky, crooked courthouse steps looks great. The name can be a double intendre, too. lol

  16. Love those colors.I 'm in to brights and lots of contrast.
