2018 Finish-A-Long ~ #1 Finish: Chocolatier BOM

Chocolatier is finished ~ just in time for the Naples Quilters Guild Quilt Show!  Such a gorgeous pattern by AnneMarie Chaney ~ I'm so happy I could finish it in time so that lots of people can see it.

I did straight line quilting with the walking foot for the background.  For the blocks, I did some simple free motion quilting using theads to match the colors in the blocks.  It's the most FMQ I've ever done, but I'm happy with the result!

I love a scrappy binding.

The back looks like some crazy road map.
