October ‘19 Quilty Box Gift-Away!

Hello!  I am home from my whirlwind trip to Africa!

I returned last evening to a stack of mail that had gathered during the 9 days that we were touring Kenya, and at the top of the stack?  The October Quilty Box, just waiting to be opened and discovered!

It arrived that day AFTER I left, as Indigenous Peoples Day (Formerly known as Columbus Day) fell on the Monday stopping mail in its tracks.

But all good things come to those who wait, and this box is worth waiting for!

Oooh!  I spy gorgeous blues and neutral!

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 am headed up to Virginia and will catch you from there.

Quiltville Quote of the Day!

  3. Welcome home, Bonnie ! have traveled to Uganda and yes, the jet lag is VERY real.

  4. Love the combo of blue and white! While you were in Kenya, I was on a cruise ship to Hawai'i and back, so wasn't able to follow your travels this time. I'm looking forward to catching up on your trip.

  5. Love your offers and quilts

  6. Welcome home. I sure enjoyed your pictures, thank you do much. Hope the jetlag passes quickly.

  7. Missed you Bonnie, welcome home! Loved following you and seeing Kenya through your eyes. The quilty box looks wonderful. Oohh, those blues and neutrals! Thanks for a chance to win. Rest up and soon you'll be back on your timezone schedule. Bavaria will be coming soon! Vickie from Iowa

  10. Welcome home! Time zone changes are killers. Take your time. We're not going anywhere! Lol!

  11. Welcome home! Thank you for the Iron EZ, it was waiting for me when I returned from my vacation. My friend called me and told me I had won. Can't wait to use it in my creation room. :)

  12. I enjoyed your pictures of Kenya and hope your jetlag passes within a couple of days!! Welcome home!!

  13. So glad you are home safe and sound. Loved your pictures from your trip.

  14. Welcome home Bonnie! Your pictures were just amazing of Africa. I'll never get there in this lifetime so it was nice to experience it through your camera lens. Love the shades of blue in this Quilty Box! Hope you can get some much needed rest in the next few days. Jan in MA

  15. Would love to see what kinds of fabrics you (may have) picked up for yourself in Africa, Bonnie. Thanks for the chance to enter the Quilty Box contests!

  16. I really enjoyed your travel adventures, the photos were always beautiful
    I am glad you are home and yes, just rest. Air travel can be exhausting especially on the cramped airlines these days.
    I am excited to see what treasures you gathered from your trip.
    Thank you so much for offering a chance to win a quilty box. You are enthusiastic and wonderful, and so is the quilt box company.


  18. Enjoyed your stories and pics from Africa. Welcome home, even fun can be exhausting. I'm eagerly anticipating your new mystery quilt color announcement so I can go play in my stash.

  19. Homecoming is often the best part of traveling...all those wonderful familiar faces and places are even more lovely after seeing the wonders during travel. Loved participating vicariously thru your photos and stories - it's my only way to travel these days except in dreams

  20. Looks like another great trip! Wonderful photos, and the people looked so friendly and welcoming.

  21. Welcome Home Bonnie, even though this has been a few days.
    Thanks for all the pictures, and the intro to the Samburu peoples. I Love to learn about new cultures, also. I continually tell people when it comes to other cultures that are trying to become democratic, " It is their form of Democracy, not ours". What works for us will not work for most other countries. Heck, it doesn't seem to be working the best for us right now, either!
