At last...

(I cannot type those two words without hearing Etta James in my head!)  My Chocolat quilt is finished.  Quilted, bound and washed...everything! I have been working on this quilt for more than 3 years.  I collected fabric for the longest time.  Because I had no idea what pattern I was going to use, I have have so much more fabric than I needed.  I have already used some of the yardage for valences in my bedroom and pillow shams.  Next up will be pillow cases, a bed skirt and I think I will still have enough to make enough patchwork fabric to cover a vintage spool chair in my room.  I think this may still be my all time favorite 3 Sisters collection from Moda...though I adore Portabello Market and Peace on Earth.  Ok, I love Vienna Nights, Roman Holiday, Glace', etc.  (Pretty much if 3 Sisters designs it, I buy it!)

I just did a big, fat meander on the long arm, nothing jazzy.  It took me five hours to blind stitch the binding.

This is the largest quilt I have made - queen size - and I cannot wait to put it on my bed.  Unfortunately, I will have to wait just a little longer since I left the darned thing at my sister's house!  

Linking up with


  1. Wow Suzan! That is very pretty! I love that line of fabrics. I'm sure it feels great to have it finished.

  2. That is one gorgeous (and large ) quilt. Those colours just sing. I can see this being a perfect snuggling in bed quilt on those cold winter nights.

    I hope your sister doesn't fall in love with it while it's at her place. You may not get it back...

  3. I adore 3Sisters fabrics too; and Chocolat is at the top of my list!
    congrats on finishing.

  4. What a lovely finish! Congrats - it's beautiful!

  5. How beautiful! I love those muted, Fallish colors. What a labor of love that one is. Hope you get to put it on your bed soon.

  6. Love it!! Oops!! Hope she gives it back....I might be tempted to "misplace"!!

  7. It's gorgeous, love those colors!! I love 3 Sisters also. I'm making a quilt with their Grace line!
