Usually, there is an information card about the month’s curator as well as a little magazine, but my box was missing those things this month.  There was a card to pass along with a coupon code for subscriptions, though.

Wonderfil Egyptian Cotton Tutti Thread (50 wt, 500 m) in Shell – Value $3.25 (buy a 1000 m spool for $7.50)

You’ll often find at least one thread in Quilty Box. This thread is clearly meant to be seen – in quilting, embroidery, etc.  It is cotton and very easy to work with.

ByAnnie.com Stiletto and Pressing Tool – Value $19.95

This is a useful item for machine piecing. You can use the stiletto while sewing with your machine to hold items in place when you get too close to the needle for your fingers. I also like the second feature: pressing seams while you sew so you don’t need to run to the iron. I hate ironing anything!

Zirkel Magnetic Pin Holder – Value $19.99

This thing is quite heavy. But it is useful.  I know Nyx got ahold of my last pincushion; she only ate the little strawberry part. (This was years ago; she is fine.) Here is an alternative. You drop whatever you want on it, point down, and the magnets in this will arrange what you drop in a circle.  I did it with some needles to show you.

Hello Jane by Allison Harris for Windham Fabrics – Value $23?

I had to estimate the price here. But I’ve linked to a website where you can buy various arrangements of the fabrics in this collection. These pieces are definitely smaller than fat quarters. I think they are eighths? There are 16 of them. At any rate, I love these colors and I also like that you can play around with primary and secondary colors, types and scale of prints, etc.

QuiltyBox July 2017

I’ve been trying to get better with triangles so I made a couple of pinwheel squares this month. I still need some work, and to get over my aversion to ironing, but this isn’t too bad. And I like the way this month’s fabric colors work together.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $66 for the July 2017 Quilty Box. I did have to estimate the value of the fabric; without an information card I really didn’t have a lot to go by. At any rate, that is comfortably above the cost of the box. I felt like this shipment was a little disjointed simply because there wasn’t a curator, but the tools are fun and/or useful and I think the fabric colors are pretty!

What do you think of the July 2017 Quilty Box?

  1. Allison Harris was the curator according to another unboxing and it also came with a pattern. I would contact them to get your pattern!

    • Ah, thanks. I have had a missing item from QuiltyBox once before. (They took care of it promptly.)

  2. Thank you!!!!

  3. Do they send any type of instructions for non quilters?

    • Some months you will get a pattern. You can’t always make the pattern (or at least not a full quilt) from the fabrics provided (you would need binding, cotton batting, backing fabric, maybe a neutral fabric or two). Sometimes you can.

      The patterns vary in terms of complexity and also in terms of the information provided. I feel like most of them assume you know major quilting terms and how to operate a sewing machine. Some also assume you know how to do applique.

      If you are a non-quilter, you may need to get some books and/or visit some quilt blogs and/or watch some YouTube videos or take a class or just get help from a quilting friend to learn the basics first. The amounts of fabric typically in QuiltyBox are good for small trial projects like potholders, wall hangings, and pillows, which are good beginner projects, but you usually need some outside resources to do those things.

      Hope that helps!
