Chocolate Stars

I tempted you with this
Now I can finally show you this.....

Chocolate Stars

My newest Moda Bakeshop quilt...
inspired by Momo's Freebird fabric and Marti Michell's quilt templates.
I wanted to challenge my skills, stretch my design to the edge and create a beautiful quilt...
Tell me you like it, cause I LOVE it..

Congrats on the Moda post, this chocolate is yum! You have a really neat design here, the illusion of curves is cool.

I love it and the chocolate looks terrific. Congratiulations on another great project for the bake shop. It's a great one for showing off special fabrics.

SewLindAnn said...

Good Morning! I just had to let you know how striking your design is.

stitchsister said...

LOVE IT!

Chris said...

Fantastic!!! It's funny, I saw your bio and I'm kind of the opposite - I've always been a knitter, but just recently started getting obsessed with quilting! I just made a pillow with some Fassette fabrics - it's on my blog! I love your quilts - i hate it when people immediately think "old fashioned" when they hear either quilting or knitting - so many quilts out there (yours included) are totally modern and cool!

TJ and Whitnee said...

What a darling quilt! I love the stars, the material, and I think the brown shashing looks great!

TJ and Whitnee said...
