The quilt “Box of Chocolates” was pieced in 2005. This old fashioned heart fabric was the inspiration for the bar quilt design. I was reminded of receiving chocolate for Valentine’s Day. The diamonds are the boxes, pieced with various fabrics to represent the many types of chocolate candy available in a box. The brown fabric represents the chocolate.

The quilt is now quilted, bound and sent off to a very good friend who helped me in a time of great need. It is never too late to complete a project or show gratitude.
The stars in this quilt were pieced in 2008 as a desire to use only non-floral fabrics. I sewed them together and prepared the top for quilting. As I did so, I felt inspired to embroider words on it so it became the “Stars All Around” quilt.
The quilt asked for more embroidery than I expected (and took longer, too). It is now finally quilted and I am working on the binding. Whew! Another quilt completed.
Love and blessings to all,
