Traveling Stash Box #3

I have finally gone through the box and looked at all the fabric inside...with that said I still have not made up my mind what to take and put back in...the box has some notions as well as a few patterns, but I did not take a pic of them as my battery is running low...here is what I am keeping...some fat quarters and a mini charm pack...
this is what I am putting back into the box...a jellyroll from Moda...
and some fat quarters...I may put some notions in as well, but am not sure as of yet...
 if you want to be in the draw for this box to visit your house all you need to do is leave a comment and I will be drawing a winner on Thursday of this coming week and post it off to the winner on Friday...you must have an active blog and also live in the US due to the postage rates...for all the rules concerning the Traveling Stash boxes you can go here...but here is an overview of them:

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 discretion. 
  • 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.
