A NEW Traveling Stash!

Wow was I surprised to find out I won a second Traveling Stash Box!  This one has lots of nice goodies, including some quilting magazines and a couple patterns. Let me show you:

Of these goodies, I chose the apple fabrics and some coordinating( the group on right side of photo below) and I added in some purples, gray striped and red (left side of photo below).

It's amazing when you receive one and I am now giving the one I received to someone else. All you have to do is be willing to pay the postage on this box to the next person and follow the rules as they are listed here:
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 :)
