Belgian Chocolate Sampler

You may remember a couple of months ago I went to Brussels with my husband on a quick little trip. I might have mentioned it a time or ten! It was so fun, and I had such good memories, that I wanted to capture it in fabric. Isn't that what quilters do?

The variety of chocolates, that looked like little pieces of art, were so interesting to me. I couldn't imagine the amount of effort that went into each little piece. So I looked in my stash and found a few fabrics that reminded me of the white, light, and dark chocolates I had seen (and tasted!)

I wanted to make something small, so I just started sewing bits together. The blocks don't represent specific chocolates that I saw (or tasted) but they remind me of them...just the memory makes my mouth water!

I machine quilted it, and it's now a fun little reminder of the good times (and great chocolates) I had in Brussels! It was finished a couple of weeks ago, but I've been too busy to share it until now. The blocks are not from any pattern or book, I just started sewing and these are what happened. The blocks are 4" and no two are alike.

Enjoy every stitch! (and bite!)

  2. What a perfectly delicious little quilt! I like that it has red in it. For some reason, chocolates ALWAYS make me think of the part of winter from Christmas through Valentines Day.
