swiss chocolate.

if seeing "robert kaufman" on that ribbon instead of "moda" made you fall out of your chair...
trust me you ain't the only one.
:D

amanda murphy emailed me to see if i wanted to play with some of her new fabric.
it's not the normal rachelish color combo, but i do have the perfect quilt planned for it.
really.

here's how i figure it...
miss lindsey needs a "football" quilt. yes a football quilt.
flag football season will be here in a month.
football = lots of outside time for us griffith's.

we are now the eagles and our colors are blue & white.
let's face it...white fabric and football are SO not bff's.
that and blue fabric really isn't very girly looking.

enter swiss chocolate.
blue. cream. pink. chocolate brown. yum.
i forsee the perfect football quilt in the making.

the tricky part was choosing a pattern.
of course i wanted to use something that would be ubber cute.
BUT i didn't want to freak out if a cleat happened to run across it.
*flag on the play*

enter scruffily.
yum yum pint sized scruffily-ness is in the making.
be still my heart.

and guess what...
i have some extra swiss chocolate precuts that are free to a good home.
who wants them?!?!
*winner will be drawn friday*

{fyi: yall can buy swiss chocolate here.}

Megan said...

I'm so excited that Kaufman's getting into the pre-cut game! They have some awesome fabric collections that deserve more blogland hoopla, and I think pre-cuts are a great way to draw attention to them. THANKS for being generous enough to part with a pre-cut!

Wendy P said...

I'll be glad to take some off your hands. I ordered a few cuts of Swiss Chocolate, so I am missing a lot of the line. A jelly roll perhaps?

Of course it would make a great football quilt, and why would anyone think it is odd for a person to make a quilt specifically to reference the colors of their new tag-football team?! ;) You crack me up. With those delicious colors, I don't think you need any justification at all to whip up something. Thank you for the chance to win.
