Fat Quarterly's Swiss Chocolate Roll-Up Giveaway!

Fat Quarterly is hosting a Swiss Chocolate Roll-Up Giveaway(And so am I - for a second chance to win see details below.) 


In celebration of this giveaway I have written up a recipe with this goody for my exclusive Chocolate Torte!
You can make it in rich, decadent chocolate...



Or with a hint of mocha...



To hear more of my blabbering and to download the recipe, visit Fat Quarterly's site.

You can enter the giveaway there as well.  For a second chance to win,
  1. Become a follower of my blog.
  2. After becoming a follower (or if you already are one), leave me one comment on this post saying you've done so and tell me which flavor of my torte (chocolate or mocha) you prefer.  Maybe even tell me what you would make with this collection, but that is not required - I'm just curious!  (MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE A WAY FOR ME TO CONTACT YOU SHOULD YOU WIN.) 
The deadline for the giveaway will be Saturday, February 5th. 

If you'd like some Swiss Chocolate, please ask your local shop to order it from Robert Kaufman Fabrics.  (Fat Quarter Shop has yardage too, but no one has a roll-up yet, so if you win, you'll be the first!)  Swiss Chocolate ships February 20th!

Happy sewing!
Amanda

I've become a follower, and my favorite "flavor" would be Chocolate.. mmmm yummy looking!

My favorite is the Mocha and I really like the new design that you featured in today's post - I would probably make that quilt. Hard to choose though as I also like the bags and pillows that you featured in your Ambrosia fabric. :)

I just came across your blog. I like your posts. My favorite is the Mocha. I would make a quilt out of the strips. I find that I often pick out Robert Kaufman fabrics when looking for fabrics for a project.

Hi Amanda I saw your blocks in the Swiss Chocolate over on Block-a-palooza and I love that fabric. Sorry I didn't realize you were the designer but now I know. I'm now a follower and hope to see more of your work.

It is hard to pick between chocolate and mocha because I like them both. I guess I will have to use both collections in two different projects. Oh darn! LOL

Thanks for the Chocolate Torte pattern.

I'm already a follower :) I love both but the Mocha calls to me. I have a skirt pattern from Sew Serendipity that uses jelly rolls, and I think I need one in this fabric line!

 
At January 29, 2011 at 8:45 AM , Blogger Jodi-JoJoMia's Place said...

Yummy! I like them both but would have to pick Chocolate because I love pinks! especially with browns. I think I might just make the quilt you showed. Looks cute and fun!

 
At January 29, 2011 at 9:32 AM , Blogger Carol T said...

I just signed up to follow your blog. Congratulations on having a booth at quilt market this spring. I like the chocolate version a little more than mocha but would love to make a quilt that uses both versions. Maybe a huge star quilt for our bed.

I am a follower and I love the mocha one best. I am not sure what pattern I would use to make a quilt out of it, maybe one I haven't made before.

I just started following you via Goggle reader. The mocha colorway is singing to me...blues and browns are one of my favorite color combinations.

 
At January 29, 2011 at 10:58 AM , Blogger Diane H said...

Signed up to follow. Enjoyed the read over at Fatquarterly too. Both lovely, but my heart beats a little faster for the Chocolate Torte. Thanks a bunch.

 
At January 29, 2011 at 11:53 AM , Blogger Melody said...

I'm a follower. Wow, choosing between the two is difficult but I would have to go with chocolate. Love how bright the colors are. Thanks for the chance to win.

 
At January 29, 2011 at 1:17 PM , Blogger StitchinByTheLake said...

Mocha, mocha, mocha. :) Love that one! What would I make - a quilt wrap. I made one recently and love it. I'm in the winter of my life and alas am always cold. I love wrapping my quilt wrap/shawl around me and would love to have several more - they're perfect for an air conditioned church. Oh and yes I'm a follower. blessings, marlene

Hi Amanda. Just signed up and swiss chocloate's my fave because I've decided I don't really have red in my stash and I think it'd help push me out of my comfort zone to creat something really cool. I have in mind a cosmetic bag and little girls bag using applique.....

I love both flavours of Swiss Chocolate - I'd like to use chocolate for a lap quilt and pillows for the living room; the mocha flavour would suit me for some clothes for my daughter and maybe a handbag for me.
The Roll Up would be a great start for some lovely projects, thanks for the chance to win :)

At January 30, 2011 at 5:41 PM , Blogger Cathy Fry said...

Love the new collection! The reds and salmon combo with the brown would be my favorite, but I do love the blue one too. What would I make? Maybe a throw for my family room or maybe a gift -- just don't know for sure.

The palette of Ambrosia was refreshing but I found the slightly more sophisticated patterning of Mocha and Swiss Chocolate nourishing! As for what to use it for, well my heart aches for the people affected by floods in Queensland and I'd like to make sewing caddies or something useful to encourage those who are endevouring to put their lives back together. jbrgeternity@hotmail.com

I am a follower to your blog. But I don't know if I could choose one color way over the other. I love the warm richness of the chocolate set, but the mocha one fits my house more. I guess I'll have to say mocha. I've always been a blue fan. Thanks for the chance to win your lovely fabrics.

I would like to make some cafe curtains for my kitchen and accessories, like oven mitts and placemats as well. I've got blue in the tiles and this would make it all look very posh! Thanks for the chance to win some.

I'm a follower and I love both the chocolate and the mocha. I'm not sure I could even pick because who's to say I couldn't use both in one project?!? Nonetheless, I have a new nephew coming in June and so I'd make a baby quilt for him in the mocha. :o). Beautiful stuff!

At February 5, 2011 at 8:57 PM , Blogger Anna said...

I am a follower now. SOOOO in love with the designs. This was a tough decision on which colour I prefer but I might have to go with the mocha. Just because my home interior is mostly blue. Glad you asked what it be used for cause I already have a plan...sort of. I thought it be a fun challenge to create as many items for a kitchen set or pillow set using the fabrics. For example, towels, coasters, placemats, etc for the kitchen or a collection of different pillow design for the couch. What do you think?

 
At February 6, 2011 at 6:47 AM , Blogger annmarie said...

At February 7, 2011 at 8:38 PM , Blogger Anita said...

I am a follower and while I love both the colorways of this line I think the Mocha is more my favorite. As for what I'd do with it if I won...I think I'd carry it around with me and pull it out for regular petting. Beyond that...I'm just not sure.
