If Hershey's is one of your favorites, or Dove, or Nestles, etc... THIS is the quilt for you. And it promises, to not put one bit on your hips, unless of course you sit under it and just eat chocolate forever, which is actually not a bad idea! :-)
My friend Ruth and I saw a special exhibit of these quilts at HMQS in Salt Lake City and just went crazy over it. We later found the designer, Angie Oswald and immediately bought patterns from her. Angie designed this for her quilt guild. Now that's a guild I want to be a part of. Is this just too much fun?
There are so many different parts to this, that you just have to see. Specialty fabrics can really change the look of this quilt. There were probably 20 quilts at the HMQS display and every one looked completely different.
It's a great place to bring on the bling too. I love ric-rac, ribbon, buttons, and even baby pom-poms for the marshmallows in the hot chocolate. Anything goes with this baby!
Fusible applique, pieced blocks, just a delicious assortment of construction methods. It's a great way to practice on a little bit of everything. Sorry paper piecers, they left you out on this one:-(

Don't you know, that I bought every specialty fabric that I thought might work for this quilt. I haven't even began to touch them all. Looks like a Choco Bliss 2 might have to go up on the drawing board. :-)
So there you have it Chocolate lovers. You can contact Angie for a copy of her wonderful pattern at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your in the Denver area, my friend Ruth and I will be teaching a 4 week class, at Wooden Spools on South Broadway in Englewood, Aug 16, 23, 30 and Sept 6th from
1-4pm. We promise to amuse and abuse everyone - equally of course!! hehehe
You'll be sure, to have a rip roaring good time in this class. My guess is, that there will be a little chocolate tasting as we go, too :-)
Are you tempted yet...
Hope to see you there!!
