This month there was an information card with a list of items in the box, as well as a separate card with a letter by this month’s curator, Anne Unrein of byannie.com.  Her site has a lot of patterns and kits, but it looks like she specializes in various totes, bags, and cases.

Andover Half Yard Cuts from the Bohemia Collection by Makower UK (x5) – Value $28.15

I love this fabric.  Something about the patterns really appeals to me.  And the half yard cuts are generous – enough to really do something fun with patchwork, especially if I get some solid coordinating colors.

Note: I couldn’t find most of these patterns for sale in the US so I linked to another fabric from this collection and used that for the value, too.  It worked out to about what the information card said.  (I couldn’t get any pages other than the home page on the Andover site to load in any web browser I tried.)

Stash and Dash Pattern from ByAnnie – Value $9.95

Stash and Dash Kit from ByAnnie – Value $14.95

This month, there is a specific project that includes a pattern and the hardware you will need to make a “Stash and Dash” kit, which is a foldover organizer for small craft supplies.  You could make this using some of the enclosed fabrics (you need a quarter yard of one fabric and a half yard of another) or choose your own.  I am rather unskilled with attaching hardware like zippers (which is not something you usually do with quilts…) and I did want to get this review finished before September, you know, so I do not have a completed project to show you.

I didn’t realize that the zipper and mesh and strap and hardware were part of the finishing kit, so that’s why there are three pictures instead of one.  There were a few missing items from the finishing kit (the strap and hardware) but QuiltyBox quickly fixed that by sending them out separately so they are pictured above.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $53 for the March Quilty Box.  I absolutely love the fabric and I’m pleased with how quickly Quilty Box resolved the missing items issue.  It does meet the stated retail value and is above the cost of the subscription.  If you are the sort of person who wants directions for completing a project, this is a good month for you (not every month of Quilty Box will have supplies for a complete project, though).

What do you think of the March 2016 Quilty Box?

When you sign up for Quilty Box, every month you will receive a box in the mail with four or more items to get your Quilty on. Each box has a theme and will include fabric, patterns, notions, or thread with a retail value over $50. Past boxes have averaged over $60! Whether you're looking for a w... read more.
