The Chocolate Quilt


Here is my latest quilt finish. My husband named it  “The Chocolate Quilt”. It is my first isosceles triangle project. I cut a lot of triangles and started arranging them on my design wall; the final layout ending up with 190 triangles using 18 different fabrics. A great stash buster project the quilt finishes at approximatley 37″ x 52″.  I used a sweet grey pindot for the backing.


The quilt will be gifted to a tiny baby boy who lives in France. He was born in early October weighing less than 3 pounds at 1.285 kgs. What a miracle !


My most recent rescue cat followed me out to the photo shoot location. She is a gorgeous blue Russian. Not being really good at naming anything, I call her “the Russian”. What she did next really surprised me…


she made the leap up onto the grainary roof – at least an 8 foot jump ! Then she meowed and knocked snow all over me wanting me to help her down – jeeze !

For those who may be wondering why my husband named the triangle quilt “The Chocolate Quilt” ? Well, you know how when you break a piece off of one of those thin dark chocolate bars and some little crumbs of chocolate sprinkle down – sometimes un- noticed ? Yes, I am guilty of occasionally indulging while quilting and I think that while sewing the rows together those little crumbs leapt onto my fabric and I pressed them in without noticing ! I hear a hot iron can really set chocolate stains 😦


Later today I’m going to attempt to remove the stains, wish me luck !

Thanks for having a look and Happy Thanksgiving to all my visitors from south of the 49th parallel.
