May 2021 Quilty Box Gift-Away!

Oh, the colors of a blooming summer!

This gorgeous Quilty Box arrived on my doorstep and I can't wait to share it with you!

With the arrival of warm temperatures I am thinking of flowing flowery sundresses, of sun tea refracting the sunlight through a gallon jar onto the warm concrete patio from when I was a child -

(Where is that jar - I need to make some sun tea TODAY!)

Of the "outdoor" patio furniture with floral patterned cushions my granny had on her "piazza" with the scent of geraniums blooming in a multitude of clay pots. I love how geraniums bring back the scents of my childhood summers.

It's all captured in this month's Quilty Box!!

This month's box features Heather Bailey and her True Kisses collection for Figo Fabrics.

You can read all about Heather, her life, her design process and her fabrics in the Bundles of Inspiration magazine included in the May 2021 Quilty Box.

Inside the box is a set of 7 gorgeous fat-quarters perfect for the cover quilt on the Bundles of Inspiration Magazine - Heather is calling this quilt Spellbound.

Also included in this box - A Quilting Life monthly planner by Sherri McConnell.

A Quilty Pencil - Always handy!

A label for you next gifted and given quilt.

And a yummy spool of variegated grey thread from Aurifil.

So yummy for summer!

(I adore that red/pink geometric print on the far right!)

What is a Quilty Box?

  • Each month we have 4 or more products (fabric, patterns, thread, or notions)
  • Boxes feature your favorite designers, authors and artisans!
  • We will be using the hashtags #QuiltyBox and #GetQuilty

We are going to give away this beautiful box - are you ready to win it?

Drawing to happen Tuesday, June 1, 2021.

And while I've got you here - This is also ENDING on June 1st:

These gentle curves are EASY!

And the pattern includes full instructions, step by step on how to make the bias binding, and how to apply it to the quilt with success.

Basket Toss is Scrap User's System friendly - I was able to sew up a lot of my smaller scraps, even making good use of rarely-used charm squares for the bigger basket base triangles.

This would be a great quilt for swapping blocks with friends as they are all different and VARIETY is the name of the game!

Quilt Size: 88’’ x 88’’

Let those neutrals shine as much as you want them to!

If you wish a bit more of a sedate look, you certainly could use one neutral throughout - or mix it up "just a bit" by using a single neutral for each basket, bringing together 4 different neutrals when the 4 baskets come together in the Basket Toss block.

Any way you color it, this quilt is BASKETS full of quilty fun.

As promised, the introductory price for Basket Toss is already marked 25% off - no coupon needed!

This price drop is good through May 31st, and will revert to the full price of $12.00 on Tuesday, June 1, 2021.  Don't delay!

Scrappy baskets twirl in a whirlwind of color! Fill your background areas with your favorite neutrals, and finish your border perfection with an easier than it looks gently scalloped border! Step-by-step directions with full color graphics and photos. A wonderful way to sew happily through your own scrap basket!

Quiltville Quote of the Day -

I keep thinking of this one. There are many things beyond our own control, but there are exciting things around the corner as well!

    That box looks perfect for summer. I forgot all about sun tea. I might have to find a spot to put a big jar in and let her go. Tomorrow is my last alarm clock, then we are out for the summer!!! Thank goodness! I will have plenty of time to make that tea while I am quilting away!! :)
