The Traveling Stash Arrived!

This drawing is now closed.  Thank you to those who participated.

Today, the traveling stash arrived at my house.  Tom was as excited as I was.  We opened it together and oohed and aahed at the contents.  There are patterns, even a book, a couple of tools, and lots of fabrics.  I went through each piece, one by one, and picked out these lovelies to stay with me.


I am still debating about a four panel piece of fabric that provides foundation piecing blocks for 32  8" kaleidoscope blocks.  I have to decide if I would ever use it.  Maybe.  I guess the next person who gets the box will know.
How would you like to have the Traveling Stash come your way?  Here is what you need to know.
1. You must have an active blog.
2. You may take whatever you want from the stash but you must replenish the box
3. You agree to host a giveaway on your blog and send the Traveling Stash on to the winner.
4. U.S. friends only please due to the shipping costs.
If you want a chance at the box, please leave me a comment telling me your favorite quilting design book.
I will leave open until Tuesday evening.
Good luck, everybody.

Oh I don't have just ONE favorite quilting design books, I have an entire library full of them! IF they have stars, bright colors, out of the ordinary, lots of pieces, challenging looking blocks or quilts. There is no way I could just pick one out of the hundreds I have. Especially since I just bought over 50 more books in the past 3 months. Great sales are great!

I think my favorite quilting book is the one I am currently looking at lol. Right now I am having fun with Column Quilts by Nancy Z.

My favorite quilting book? The Internet! I've got several books on my shelf, but most of the designs I make come from the internet. But if I had to pick a book, it would be Amy Ellis's book Modern Basics.

My all-time fave quilting books would be anything from Kaffe Fassett. His color sense and fabrics (and lovely photography) are such yummy eye-candy.

Agree with Robin, too, that whatever quilting book I'm looking at is a source of inspiration. Right now that's "Intuitive Design & Color" by Jean Wells.

I'm a scrap quilter and really don't use books - use the library block database - but did win a copy of Scrap Basket Sensations that is very inspiring. Would love the stash box to visit met.

I love stars and have several of Judy Martin's books - just can't pick a favorite. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway for the Traveling Stash. I would love to have it come my way :)

I couldn't even begin to whittle down ONE favorite quilting book. There are SO many that I love! :) Bed & Breakfast Quilts is an awesome book, and I have my eye on a Bed Runner book...

I'm still very new in the quilting world so I don't have a lot of experience with quilting books, but I do like "Living Large 2" by Heather Peterson I believe.. gorgeous designs - thanks for the chance to win!

High on my list of "must makes" this year are a few quilts from Pam and Nicky Lintott's book "Two From One Jelly Roll Quilt." I have a few jelly rolls that I bought at the recent end of the year sales and really want to try their patterns. I would love to paw through the traveling stash and touch all the pretties.
