I was asked a few weeks ago if I’d like to try out a box from Cotton Cuts in exchange for my thoughts. I am always up for trying out subscription boxes or other quilting tools. There are so many options out there and we all only have a limited amount of our budget that we spend on fabric, notions, quilting, tools, etc. and I love suggesting things I feel are worth a part of your budget!
Here’s how Cotton Cuts works:
They ask you a series of questions to try to get to know your quilting style, then they customize a box based on your preferences. You can choose 12 fat quarters or 1 half yard cuts. You can choose to have a box sent monthly, or every other month. They customize the experience so you end up with a box you are pleased with when it arrives in the mail. Beyond that, I love the mission behind Cotton Cuts. They provide jobs to intellectually challenged and others with disabilities. I just LOVE companies that give back or exist to help provide opportunities to those who might not have employment otherwise.
My box arrived today and I was so pleased by the contents. I requested no batiks (they’re just not my thing) and ended up with 12 great FQ’s (plus the one extra they sent!). Surprisingly none of these are repeats with what I have in my stash, which is awesome considering I have accumulated quite a bit of Cotton + Steel lately. I adore Sweet Marion by April Rosenthal and recognized the two florals immediately. The novelty prints are perfect for a boy mom and I forsee some drawstring bags in my future for more hot wheels storage.
In addition to the perfectly folded and packaged FQs, they also included a cute Gingiber greeting card, Lanterns jelly roll friendly pattern by Purple Pineapple Studio, two 12-1/2″ block patterns, a cute zipper pull, and a free pattern download of my choice from Rebecca Bryan. I’m super excited to pick a pattern and get started enjoying this awesome box.
