What's in the Box ~ Robert Kaufman Bounty Boxes

Late last week a large box was delivered to our home and Oliver (our Miniature Schnauzer) took immediate possession of  it.  I am sure he thought the contents of this box could surely not be fabric this timeYou can't hide a box of fabric this big from the financial controller!


I think Oliver was hoping that it contained dog treats and dog toys, and perhaps a new dog bed that was not a quilt.  Unfortunately for him, he was wrong.


And fortunately for me it was fabric indeed.  Two boxes of the stuff that my dreams are made of (uh yes, I dream of quilts and fabric; my nightmares are rotary cutter mishaps and seam rippers!).  Well, you know ...

  10. I have fabric envy. Oliver is so cute. My dogs always think everything is for them too, but if they don't stop scaring the poor UPS guy he may stop leaving my fabric on the front porch.

  16. I want a big poster of all that fabric, looking at that everyday would be so inspiring to me. I too have a Yorkie/Schnauzer cross named Oliver. My Oliver is still a puppy, both of his hind legs we were severely broken somehow, humane society picked him up, we had his legs repaired, you would never know this little bundle of non-stop energy has legs full of steel rods and pins.
    You are an AMAZING quilter.

  17. At our house it's either, fabric, books or bills, nothing for the dogs. Poor spoiled pups! Love all the FQ's, can't wait to see what you do with them.

  20. Maybe Christmas gift for mu-aw?! One can dream--at least your dreams came true!! As for Oliver,poor guy,maybe a nice big bone for him-eh? lol

  21. OMG (and I've NEVER used that before)!! I would just be staring at them all day afraid to get any of them out of order if I took them out of the box.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I had no idea you had a mini schnauzer! I keep thinking that they are the right dog for me - what has been your experience in owning one?

    ReplyDelete
  23. How fun to just see it all together like that!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great colors! I really love the darks set.

  25. I always end up drooling on my keyboard when I look at these Kona FQ boxes! I'm just too cheap to pull the trigger. Man, they are gorgeous, though. I don't think even if I had them I could break them up to cut into them!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy to see Oliver is still about--you haven't mentioned him in a while, and I didn't like to ask...

    Also, I really really really *really* want a schnauzie of my own all over again. *loves*

  27. Only one thing to say: awesome. They look SO pretty in the boxes...I would just have to stare at them for awhile before taking them out of the box.

  28. Oliver is quite a handsome fellow. Poor Oliver.

    I can't wait to see what you do with those fabrics. I know it will be great!

  29. Oh, so jealous. I dream of those boxes of Kona cottons!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, those boxes might not make Oliver drool, but they do me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow! Those are SO gorgeous!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wish a box like that would show up at my door!

    ReplyDelete
  33. oh my, Oliver is the cutest!! And those boxes... yum.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I had no idea that boxes of fabrics like that are available... they are gorgeous. I think I'd have to sit and look at them and show them to all my (non-quilting) friends before I could even think about cutting them up.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow, that looks like so much fun! Almost like getting a brand new box of crayons as a kid! I too dream of fabrics and quilts. It must be a side effect, huh? Love your quilts!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wonderful fabric. So many possibilities!

    I have two schnauzers -Oscar and Lucy (Lucinda). Do you remember where you got Oliver's dog jumper? He looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mmmmmm such a yummy package! I received 3 yards of Kona in Aqua today, and that made me happy!
    What shall you do with all those colors? I'm intrigued :-)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awh he is so cute! He looks like my dog when I was growing up. They are such good dogs!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh what a cutie! And the boxes are pretty awesome too. I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun with them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Can I ask what you paid in postage for that? Not that I'm likely to be in a position to get one soon, but would love to know just in case ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow!!! I can't wait to see what you do with those. We have a miniature schnauzer, too! How fun!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Very nice indeed! A lovely addition to anyone's stash!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Those are so fabulous! I bet you couldn't wait to open those boxes! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  44. Oliver, my own wire fox terrier Circe has been similarly tormented and disappointed. She sends her condolences. I, on the other hand, am drooling over the delicious colors you disdain. I can hardly wait to see what your mistress dreams up.

  45. I love packages. Now if I could only have one of those gift type packages come by my favorite UPS driver, that would be SEW wonderful.

    Sewing machine here I come!

    ReplyDelete
  46. What a gorgeous package! I think I would just sit there and pet that beautiful fabric. *breaking out my best Dora* I shall call him Squishy and he shall be my Squishy. OK, done drooling.
