Bloggers Quilt Festival

It's Bloggers Quilt Festival again thanks to Amy's Creative Side, and this is my entry.  This quilt was made with instructions that it be chocolate inspired.  My favorite chocolate treat is a Chocolate Covered Caramel Apple, so that is where my color scheme came from.  I have always wanted to make a Storm at Sea, so that is the pattern I chose. This quilt measures 86" x 86" and I am entering the professionally quilted category.


I went with the idea of water while quilting this, and did a lot of swirls to accent the natural movement in the design, and to mimic water.  I also added lots of "bubbles".




A view from the back.

Thanks for looking at my entry, and have fun looking at all the quilts.  Thanks again to Amy for hosting this Festival, and thanks to my sparkly friend for the encouragement.
