Chocolatier BOM ~ A Late Start

Back in January, I jumped into the Chocolatier Block of the Month hosted by AnneMarie Chany over at GenX Quilters that started in January.  I loved the pattern she created! 

Talk about being late to the party ~ does eating chocolate all along count for anything?  My stumbling block was the fabric selection.  Not being a big fan of browns or pinks, I couldn't really figure out what colors to use ~ not to mention solids?  prints?  batiks?    So here I am, 10 months later, and I've finally made a decision!  

I found this collection of Toscana fabrics by Deborah Edwards for Northcott at my local quilt shop and fell in love.  Right across the aisle was the perfect black & white print for the background ~ Odds and Ends Crackle by Patrick Lose for RJR Fabrics.  

So this week I cut fabrics for the first 3 months

and started piecing.

Month 1

Month 2

Month 3

So I'm off to a fairly good start ~ even if it is 10 months late.  

Linking up with BOMs Away!
