This month I had the honor of curating September’s Quilty Box! Quilty Box is an online subscription to boxes filled with quilty fun! Each month is curated by a different designer (you can see a previous post I did exactly one year ago to date…wait, how weird is that?!…by clicking right HERE). It’s so much fun receiving one of these beautiful boxes in the mail each month!
I wanted to take this time to share what was inside!
Surprise, surprise! 😉 A bundle of my La Conner fabric!
I hope you guys aren’t getting sick of seeing my fabric by now :-p
Here are the 8 fat quarters I chose for the box. It was tougher than it sounds having to narrow it down from 36 to 8!
There are hints of gold sparkles in La Conner fabric, but it’s very hard to photograph. You’ll have to see it in person to see the bling.
I chose these prints specifically to go with this exclusive pattern I made just for Quilty Box. This pattern requires exactly 8 fat quarters. However, you can easily customize the size of your quilt my adding or subtracting blocks, as you can make 2 block from one fat quarter.
Quilty Box printed the pattern into a beautiful little booklet.
This was something new for me! I had custom La Conner stainless steel embroidery scissors made to include in the box! How fun are these?!
My husband and I, with the help of my mom, packaged each and every one of these scissors right on our dining table, I kid you not. And there were thousands upon thousands of them – fun times! I like to think of it as (forced) bonding time. 😉
These La Conner scissors come in three different colors to match my fabrics! Each box had one of three colors. My only regret is not being able to incorporate the gold metallic shimmer in the scissors, which you can find on my fabric in this print.
Which color is your favorite? 🙂
Also included is one spool of Cosmo Tsu Mu Gi 100% Egyptian cotton thread. Each box had one of the 4 colors shown below, which are custom picked La Conner collection threads by Lecien Fabrics. Any of these colors will blend flawlessly with your La Conner project.
I love pretty notions. These marble-glass-head pins by Clover are super dainty and the colors happen to match La Conner collection. 🙂
I love an organized sewing room (which is rare for me these days). But this mini ruler pal by Pleasant Home will help keep you organized.
A unique thing about Quilty Box is their little catalog which has fun articles and interviews to read about. This month’s catalog has an article on the town of La Conner Washington, which inspired my fabric collection.
There’s also an interview where they ask how I got started in all this quilty fun and what I did before it.
And a very lovely tid bit about my two books, including my new book Quilt As-You-Go Made Vintage which is available now! Thank you Quilty Box for the beautiful write-up.
For those that ordered a box, I hope you are happy with it! <3
Be on the lookout for my next post which will be about my 2nd book, Quilt As-You-Go Made Vintage. I filmed myself *covers eyes* talking about it, and my husband has been working hard to create a nice little You Tube video to share with you all.
As always, thank you for reading me! Enjoy the rest of your week.
