The Traveling Stash Giveaway

Well, once again I have been reading many many blogs, and neglecting my own. I can't believe my last post was in February.  I enter lots of giveaways and recently won the Traveling Stash box #6 via malini'  Turns out she's a Massachusetts neighbor of mine.  This saved her the postage of mailing me the box.  I happened to be taking a class with Victoria Finlay Wolfe sponsored by Marketplace Quilts in Salem, MA.  Victoria was great. Very inspiring with lots of information and playing with fabric.  Hema very nicely delivered the box to me while I was in the class. I opened the box while I was in the class.  Turns out there is some lovely and varied choices of fabric and notions.  My neighbor in the class oohed and awed about several pretty blue and green fat quarters that would work great for her project.  Just so happened she brought a huge bag of fat quarters with her.  Sew, we made a deal and she took the FQ's she needed, and let me have my pick from her FQ stash to replace in the traveling stash. Here is the photo without the blue and green FQ's:

Here are the FQ's I added from her stash:

I think they make a nice addition. I added a modern pattern, and switched out a pretty batik and a little jelly roll surprise. Want a chance to play with the Traveling Stash? Leave me a comment and let me know about the most recent class you attended by Friday May 16th, and I will be happy to send it your way. Sorry, open to US residents only.... I don't have many followers so I would be very grateful if you share this with your Quilty friends.  Mary in Boston.


  1. I had this box a long time ago and it is completely changed! I would love to receive it again! Put my name in the hat please!!!!

  2. Yes, it was lot of fun playing this "Traveling Stash" and picking out favorite fabrics. Looks like lovely addition. Good luck with the giveaway.

    Just stopping by to say hi. Don't add me for the giveaway! Thanks again for stopping by my blog :-).

  3. This is such a great concept to share our quilty fun! And how neat that you found a new quilty neighbor! Thanks for the chance!

    1. I forgot to say what class I recently took, an awesome free motion quilting class with Nichole Webb. She was an amazingly motivating teacher!

  4. Hello! I wandered in from Tricia's blog following the TSB trail. The only class I have ever taken was a hand piecing class several years ago. My greatest source of quilty inspiration and learning is the big beautiful world wide community of quilters ... :) Pat

  5. Hi, Mary ... please do not enter me in the drawing for this TSB tomorrow. I am going to be so busy the next few weeks that I shall have to wait until another time to join this quilty fun. Best of luck to the others in the draw and may the winner enjoy ... :) Pat
