I have some big news! I won the travelling stash! It has arrived and I was so excited to go through it! I do have to be honest when I say that there were a number of items (fabric) in the box that were not fit for any sort of quilting. I can tell you that I am willing to use almost everything in a quilt. I picked up some of the items and I wouldn't have put them in anything. These items (about 4 pieces of fabric) I took out and disposed of. I filled the box back up with some items from my stash and am ready to send it on to you!! There are some lovelies in the box including a quilt kit, patterns galore, and cute fabrics.
Here is what I took. Some lovely fat quarters.
I added some yardage of this glittery blue (I have no idea if it is a half yard or more...too lazy to measure) I purchased last year to make Christmas ornaments. Also, I wanted to offer some fun novelty charm squares (these are 6.5" squares I believe) as an "I Spy starter kit." There are over 30 squares and all are different.
Then, I added most of a layer cake of Halloween fabric, some orphan blocks, a new charm squares pack, two quarter yards of foliage prints from my LQS, and one other piece of yardage. I also just received a second copy of Quick Watercolor Quilts by Dina Pappas and will put it in the box if it fits. It is an awesome book to have as a reference if you are wanting to try a watercolor quilt. I may add more surprises if they fit in the box...we will see!
