This month there was an information card with a list of items in the box. The other side profiled this month’s curator, Jeni Baker from incolororder.com. (She seems to be into a lot of simple, geometric patterns. Which I actually find quite appealing.)
These are from the “midnight” palette of this collection. There’s also a “rosetta” palette with pink tones that’s quite pretty. I like that you could use these in the patterns that came with this box (see below) if you wanted. The color scheme is a little muted for my tastes but my sister has always wanted me to make her a quilt and these colors are right up her alley. So there’s an idea.
Flatter Spray – Value $12
This is a starch-free spray that makes it easier to iron fabric. I am challenged when it comes to ironing and need all the help I can get, so this will come in handy.
Triangularity Pattern – Value $9
You can go pretty wild with the fabric here. I think this would be a great project for someone just learning to work with equilateral triangles because that’s pretty much all you need. It comes with instructions for sizes from a baby quilt on up through a king sized quilt.
Geese in Flight Pattern – Value $9
I am not a super experienced quilter so I like patterns that are easy to cut out. This definitely fits the bill. Plus, I like the look of it, and you can make it with fat quarters for the patterned fabric part (including the ones that come with the box!).
Blockade Mini Pattern – Value $4.50 (?)
This wasn’t listed on the information card so I guess it’s just a bonus. (It’s also not in Ms. Baker’s shop.) It’s fun to get something exclusive. And a little bit smaller. So I might actually have hope of finishing it one day.
So Fine #50 Thread – Value $5.95
This was hiding in the bottom of the box, hence it appearing in a photo by itself. This thread is available in a ton of colors and I kind of want to buy a lot of them. (I have this problem with nail polishes too…)
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $62 for the April Quilty Box. I like that there are some common themes with this box each month (pretty fabric! I am a fabric hoarder!) but that the individual monthly curators also do something to make the box their own. I am learning about a lot of new quilting bloggers, as well. And the patterns this month are perfect for my taste.
What do you think of the April 2016 Quilty Box?
