Traveling Stash Box Ready to Move On

traveling stash button

  I almost did not post tonight, when I got home the power was out.  We had a big storm come through D.C. and surrounding areas.  I just got into bed with a nightlight and my kindle, and low and behold the lights came back on.  The internet was working, and all was right with the world.  I ran downstairs, open the box to see what was in it and look what I found.


The Batiks were tempting, put I have a lot of that, so was the children fabrics, put I also have enough.  So this is what I took out of the box.


I know it is not much, put I really could use some pins and the charm package was right up my alley.

Below is what I am putting in the box, I think it needed a little ethnic flavor to it.


Three half yard fabrics of African fabric, pattern and bobbin holders.  I think this is equal to what I took out and I might just add another fabric, just to keep your interested.

Now for the rules.


  1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving and the giveaway on your blog in a timely manner.
  2. There is a note in the box that logs where the box has been. Please add your info and place the note back in the box.
  3. There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box.
  4. You may take anything you like from the box. Just replace every item with comparable quilt shop quality items equal to the amount taken. See guidelines below.
  5. Ship the box to the next person in a reasonable amount of time.

Due to the amount of postage shipping is only within the USA.

GUIDELINES:The definition of a stash is a secret store of valuables. For quilters it's a collection of usable quality products. The stash should contain mostly fabric with a few patterns and/or books and other items.

  • FABRIC: Should be quilt shop quality in new condition. Scraps should only be included if they are cut for adding to a collection and packaged accordingly (i.e. I-Spy squares, postage stamp squares, etc.). There should not be anything under a Fat Quarter unless packaged like this.
  • PATTERNS/BOOKS: Should be in new or gently used condition. They should be kept to a minimum (books are bulky and add weight).
  • OTHER ITEMS: Should be in new or gently used condition. Tools, notions, etc. These items should be packaged if necessary.

You will have until Sunday Sept. 23 to leave a comment and I will have Mr. Random Counter pick the next person to receive the Traveling Stash Box.  I will announce the winner on Monday.  So don’t forget to leave a comment.  Make sure I am able to reach you.
