What,What ~ Traveling Stash Box....

Happy Friday all you Patch followers,readers,lurkers :)  I know,I know,the posts are few and far between lately.  They will start to pick up again soon,promise ;)

Although I did not have the pleasure of winning a Giveaway Day Prize per say,I did win one of these that week!!!

The fabric that was in the box when it arrived,the large piece in the foreground is an owl apron panel.

Notions,a mug rug with some sweet embroidery in the center,a large zippered pouch (laying flat in front of the mug rug),assorted trims,thread.

Quite an array of patterns and a quilt journal,for recording your quilt info about each quilt.

Rules and Guidelines 

  • Be an active blogger -- post about receiving the box and the giveaway in a timely manner 
  • Update the travel log in the box to let others know where the box has been.
  • There is a list of rules and guidelines in the box -- be sure to follow these to keep the box full of quality items and the experience positive for everyone. 
  • You may take any items from the box just be sure that you are replacing them with quality and comparable items. (Guidelines for fabric below) 
  • Ship box to the next person timely -- and communicate tracking information with recipient.
  • Shipping is within the US only  

Fabric and other item Guidelines 

  • Fabric should be quilt shop quality and in new condition. Do not include items smaller than a fat quarter unless it falls into one of the other categories and these should be packaged together. 
    • Jelly Roll -- 2.5 inch strips (typically 40 strips per set)
    • Honey Buns -- 1.5 inch strips (typically 40 strips per set) 
    • Desert Roll -- 10 strips 5 inches wide cut the length of the fabric 
    • Turnovers -- 80 (6 inch) triangles
    • Candy Squares  -- 2.5 inch squares (typically 45 squares per set) 
    • Charms -- 5 inch squares (typically 40 squares per set)
    • Layer Cake -- 10 inch squares (typically 40 squares per set)
  • Patterns / Books should be in new or nearly new condition and should be kept to a minimum as this adds bulk and weight. 
  • Other items should be new or gently used condition and should be packaged as necessary to ensure that all parts remain together. 

Important Things to Remember

  • Please ensure that items in the box are quality. If items in the box are poor quality they should be removed. Items that are being removed can be offered for optional inclusion to the next recipient. Poor quality items can be discarded but this should be done with digression. 
  • Only include items that you would be proud to own -- this is not a dumping ground for outdated or worn items
  • Items should be free of smoke, odors  and pet hair 
  • You must replace all items that you take with items of equal value and replacing with more than you take is welcome :)

This is what I decided to keep from the box,a chop stick,a few patterns and of course Yummy Fabric :)

The fabrics that I have added to replace the ones above.

I know there is a chop stick in the photo!  However it is larger in  diameter than the one I kept :)  A coin purse frame,some measuring tape trim and patterns.  

Would any of you be interested in finding this in your mail box???  Yes ?  Well then leave me a comment saying so ;)

A winner will be announced on May 22nd (late evening)!  Please be sure to read the Rules & Guidelines above before commenting :)              ~  Good Luck Everyone ~
