Box of chocolates

Everybody uses the word 'yummy' when talking about fabrics and quilts. I greatly dislike the word 'yummy'. This quilt though does make me think of the word 'yummy'. It reminds me of a box of chocolates. I love the colours of this quilt. I think they are rich and caramel-y and butterscotch-y and toffee-y. I should have known that I would like it, because the colours in the quilt are all represented in my living room furniture. I need to stick to what I like rather than trying to go with trends.

I have pictures of the pieced chains, but they would detract from the image of the quilt itself. I did something I shouldn't have. I didn't measure my pieced strips and cut the background strips to size. I went ahead and sewed the background strips on and then cut. You can see the unevenness on the bottom edge. I need to figure that one out.

I adore this quilt. The size also adds to the chocolate charm. Thank you Cherri. So here it is.


  1. Your quilt is a whole lot of chocolatey goodness! I'm glad you adore it, it looks great.

  2. This turned out great! I really need to get going on mine

  3. Nice! I usually sew on a strip that's plenty long, then cut it off a smidge longer, then square it all up when it's done. measuring is over-rated :)
