I haven’t been doing much sewing for myself over the last six months so I don’t have anything new to show for the Blogger’ Quilt Festival. Instead I thought I would show some of my favourite Chocolate Quilts.
If you asked me what my favourite colour was, I would say purple. However, when I started quilt making, I was immediately drawn to brown fabrics.
Initially as a joke, I began numbering my brown quilts as part of a ‘Chocolate Series’. After the first few, I went a step further and started to incorporate the word Chocolate into the quilt name.
Clicking on the pictures in this post will take you to the original post for more details.
The first quilt pictured is called Illumination – Number 3 in the Chocolate Series. This quilt pushed me out of my comfort zone and I was happy with the overall effect.
The second quilt pictured is called Chocolate Overdose – Number 4 in the Chocolate Series. I called the quilt Chocolate Overdose as I felt there was a little too much of the plain brown fabric in it.
The third quilt pictured is called Cherry Chocolate – Number 6 in the Chocolate Series. I love reproduction fabrics, and this quilt will always be special to me, although it did have its dramas – click here to read about what happened when I blocked it.
The final quilt pictured is called Ruled By Chocolate – Number 7 in the Chocolate Series. Whilst simply pieced, this quilt was quilted intricately with a combination of ruler, stencil and freehand techniques.
I hope you enjoyed my Bloggers’ Quilt Festival post and a little peek at some of my Chocolate Quilts. Please visit Amy's Bloggers' Quilt Festival to see the other beautiful quilts on display.
