When my June Stash Builder Box arrived, I knew it would be filled with lots of quilty goodies. I was not disappointed.
Inside the box, I found 3 fat quarters from the Glint Collection by Cloud 9, a quilt pattern by Lillyella, a block of the month pattern, Aurifil thread, True Grips – non-slip adhesive rings for acrylic rulers, bobbin buddies, a cute Stash Builder Box pin, a coupon code to Sevenly, and a pencil. There was also a little card of inspiration, which reads, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.”
I think the pencil is my favorite. It has a reminder that I’ve needed on many an occasion!
In addition to all these quilty goodies, it feels good to know that the proceeds from each box benefit children in need. This month’s box benefits foster care children served through the My Stuff Bags Foundation.
I couldn’t wait to get started making something with the fabrics.
I’ve been in need of a new table runner and so I used the block of the month pattern – Indian Hatchet – to make blocks with an off-white center. I added a bit of aqua, yellow, gray and pink fabrics from my stash.
I wanted to play a bit with the block so I deconstructed the block into its four main sections and rearranged them to make an X and O design.
For the quilting, I went with straight lines.
I had a little fun with improv on the back. This way I can flip the runner for a whole new look.
I’m thrilled with how my table runner came out. The first thing my daughter said when she saw the finished runner was, “Oh, that’s so pretty!” Bless her heart, she knows how to make her mama feel all warm and fuzzy!
