Each month, quilters are invited to submit a photo of a project made from Stash Box contents. Submissions can be made from any Stash Box from the previous 12 months. Read complete guidelines by clicking here.
Congratulations to Lisa Boyd!
We launched our monthly photo submission contest in July, and Lisa Boyd of Portage, PA, has taken our first prize with her Double Dresden quilt.
The pattern makes a 32x32" quilt, typically suitable for a wall hanging, topper, or as the focal center of a larger quilt.
"I made it to donate to a raffle at our church," Lisa tells us. "I plan to make the Double Dresden again as gifts, probably using fall and Christmas prints."
We wondered if Lisa found the Cut Loose Pattern system to be accurate and easy to follow. "The pattern was easy to follow," she says, "and I was very happy with the end project."
Lisa has been quilting more than 20 years, but she tells us she has been sewing even longer. She made her first quilt for her niece, who turns 21 this August.
"I learned to sew from my mom and also through 4H projects," Lisa explains. "I went to Paducah in April 2016 and have since been challenging myself to learn new techniques. I learned a different method of appliqueing and took a paper piecing class through Craftsy."
She has also pieced and quilted the Fraternal Twins Table Runners pattern, which is ready for binding, from the April Stash Box featured pattern and Hoffman Fabric's Painted Petals line.

Lisa points out that the Stash Box fabric from Hoffman is her favorite item in monthly boxes. She has a new Janome 9400 and has also been enjoying the Superior Threads, telling us, "I have been using the thread to try some of the stitches on my machine."
Lisa will receive 80 Hoffman Bali Batik 5" squares as her prize for July's contest.
