Best Box Yet

I have won another of the Traveling Stash boxes.  This is box number 6 and I think this is the best box I have seen. Lots of fabrics this time and just a few notions, patterns and magazines.  Want to see?  Okay, here we go:

 This is a lovely bunch of soft flannels.  I know it's spring, but think of the soft quilt you could make for fall.
 These four pieces are all at least a yard each.  Great batiks and cute children's prints.
 Here is the entire collection of fabrics.  All the rest are fat quarters or similar size.
Here are the patterns and notions in the box.  Some zippers, 2.5 inch squares and some 5 inch charm squares.

 These next two fat quarters made me laugh out loud.  This first one is called "heavy equipment" by Alexander Henry 2006.
 This one is Stand Tall Stripe. I don't know who is the manufacturer as that is cut off.  But Wow!
 This is what I took from the box. Four fat quarters, one 1 yard piece and a pink 7 inch zipper.
Here is what I added to the box: two one yard cuts of Flirtatious by Sandy Gervais, two one yard cuts of older green print fabric, 3/4 yard of red crabs from the Going Coastal line, 2 fat quarters from Noteworthy and a dot I am not sure of and 1/4 yard from sherbet pips and another I can't recall the name of, but very pretty blue and green.  Also I added about 40 charm squares to the small packet that was in there. I have lots of loose charms leftover from packs and swaps, so I pulled some from there. Whew! I was fun to add all that stuff!

Want to see this box in person?  Leave a comment on this post.  I will choose a winner on Saturday April 20.  Here are the rules of the stash:
Winner has been chosen and emailed. Congratulations to number 5, Angela T.
