Quilter Box - May 2019
$ 35.00

May's Maker Valley Quilter Box includes:

  1. Five fat quarters of Shortcake fabric by Heidi Staples for Penny Rose fabrics (which is a division of Riley Blake Fabrics). Aside from fabric design, Heidi is also known for her popular (and amazing) blog, Fabric Mutt. You can also find her on Instagram @fabricmutt. ($18)
  2. Yankee Doodle Dandy quilt pattern by yours truly—Holly Lesué for Maker Valley. This pattern is beginner friendly and a fun way to put on your scrappy thinking caps! ($8.95)
  3. Clover seam ripper. This is hands down, my very favorite seam ripper. I have two or three of them floating around my sewing room at any given time! ($5)
  4. Nifty Needles by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet. I’m always up for trying new notions and thought I’d give these color coordinated binding needles a try. I typically like a lighter weight needle with a little bit of a bend in it for binding, but these will definitely come in handy when I am working with thicker or heavier fabrics. ($3)
  5. Needle Minder hand-made with love by yours truly—Holly Lesué for Maker Valley. I loved the jam jar fabric from Heidi Staples’ line so much, I made you a needle minder! This project was actually a family affair, with my husband Dave and our four daughters helping me out! ($5)
  6. Unicorn thread gloss by Kim of Robot Mom Sews in key lime pie scent. Have you ever used thread gloss? A friend gifted me one of Kim’s Unicorn Thread Glosses years ago and I have never looked back! I can’t bind a quilt anymore without using it! I chose the key lime pie scent to go along with our patriotic theme because if pie isn’t patriotic, I don’t know what is! ($5)
  7. Star Block enamel pin by Maker Valley + Diary of a Quilter. We produced a few pins in collaboration with Amy Smart - Diary of a Quilter and this block from Amy’s pattern Red Delicious Star quilt seemed like a perfect fit for this patriotic box! ($9.95)
  8. Vinyl sticker inspired by my Yankee Doodle Dandy quilt. We love these stickers because the thick, durable vinyl protects them from scratches, water & sunlight. ($1.50)
