Chocolate Sayings Quilt

This panel was from my friend Debi and says it all about chocolate--things like "Hand over the chocolate and no one gets hurt!!" "Milk chocolate is a dairy product!" and my personal favorite, "Given enough Diet Soda and Chocolate, I could rule the world!!" I used lots of different fancy stitches that are on my machine to quilt it--that was fun, plus I didn't even download all the ones from the disc that are available! There are a bunch!

Maynard finished quilting the Thimbleberries BOM yesterday and now I need to get busy on that binding--I probably should have worked on that this afternoon, but the Chocolate panel was much more fun! There is a flap that has to be added in with the binding and while I'm sure it isn't all that hard, it is something I have never done before, so I'm putting it off just for that reason--I should just go ahead and "Just Do It" and put that experience behind me, but putting it off is so much more tempting!!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

I really like the way it turned out. All we need is chocolate and diet soda!

Oh, I love it!!!! When it comes to chocolate though, what's not to love. You did a great job!
