The Traveling Stash Box Giveaway!!

 
A couple of weeks ago, one of my quilty friends posted about
an interesting giveaway over at Carolyn's blog.........I*Believe*Inn
I entered a comment and I was the winner of the Traveling Stash Box!!
 
 
The box began over at Cherise's blog and you'll find the story of it's origins here.
Today, it's my turn to offer up the Traveling Stash box in a giveaway.
Note! This giveaway requires that whatever you remove from the box must be replaced with equal fabric, patterns, etc. Then you must host a giveaway of the Traveling Stash Box so it can continue on it's way. You must cover the cost of postage to mail the box to your giveaway winner. This is a $15.45 flat rate box and so the giveaways are open only to those in the United States.
There are several Traveling Stash boxes that are circulating and you can read an update on the boxes here.
SO, now.......... what did I find inside the box, and also what you might find if you win the box?!  When the mailman delivered the box..........I laughed when I saw how well Carolyn had taped it!  The box was packed solid and bulging at the seams!!!!!!!!!
 
 I could see a new box would be needed and luckily had one on hand.

I taped up the new box so it was ready to fill with the stash goodies. The box was so full that I swear the contents breathed a sigh of relief to be released from their squished travels. LOL!  There were lots of patterns..........
I set them aside and saw a package of sewing supplies and lots of fabric..........
That first piece that features the dragons and flames really "caught my eye". I set it aside to keep for me!
 Then I stood the fabric up to see all the colors........
Then I set it aside and saw what was in the bottom of the box. I loved that book Quilted All Day before I even opened it up. It's just the kind of quilting book that I enjoy. Thanks so much to whoever tucked this book in the Traveling Stash box. It was my favorite thing!!
I went to my bookshelf and looked for a book to replace this one that I took and I found this one. Perhaps someone wants some techniques on machine quilting and this book from "Quilt in a Day" may make someone else smile like the "Quilted All Day" book made me smile.
 Then I sorted through all the patterns..........
 and chose these two............
 I have always loved the Little Quilt books and projects so that pattern was definitely a "keeper". I have oodles of my kid's T-shirts that are waiting to be made into a quilt so I thought that if I took the Eleanor Burn's Quilt in a Day pattern for them that perhaps one day they'll get done. Righhhhhhht. LOL!
I spread out the pile of fabrics that were in the box...........
and I chose these. They all have a purpose. Just like all the fabrics I buy. It all has a purpose. Sometimes it's just so I can look at how pretty the fabrics are. :-)
And what did I put in the box in addition to the machine quilting book?  Well, I added some trims, some patterns, some fabric, etc. And the one who wins this box will find it all when it arrives at their door. Just leave your name and e-mail link if you would like to participate in the adventures of The Traveling Stash Box. Just remember..........what you take out, must be replaced with equal value items and you must cover the cost of the package when you host your own giveaway and then mail the package to your winner.
The Giveaway winner will be drawn on Friday, Sept. 21st. You have an entire week to enter and tell your friends about this fun giveaway.  Have fun!
