Anna, you can use whatever size box you wish.

" Make sure you like the things you you might get to keep them."

Hmmm I was wondering about that. I know sometimes the more square top load box fits items better but no space for books. I have run into that in the past more then once. Do we have to be this rigid with box size? LOL 

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

opps.  Side-load was supposed to read 546.06 sq inches.

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

If my math is right: top-load= 514.24 sq inches

                           side-load=5.46.06 sq inches

I had two books I wanted to send last year but they were too big,  but I was able to send something squarish that did fit in the top loader.  So I collect in a basket, and plan the box size later.  Make sure you like the things you you might get to keep them.

Which medium box are most using? Top load or side load? I think the top load has a little more space.

Medium Flat Rate Box – 2

Thank you for the welcome! I like the idea of having a box to gather gifts in. Was it the medium sized one? Ok I will look for it.

Welcome Anna Quilts to Secret Santa group!

Ginny, my machine cover (which I can see from here) is not at all crummy!

Glad you're in the group again.

Crumb piecing is basically building fabric with odds and ends of scraps, disregarding the shape of the piece you are adding to the whole. Mary, your sewing machine cover was made with crumb piecing.
