Hand Over the Chocolate - Project Quilting Season 10, Challenge 6

It's hard to believe this is the sixth and final challenge for Season 10 
Project Quilting.

I'm excited to join in this challenge, "Craving Chocolate"

My entry:

Hand Over the Chocolate


Kim announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.

THE RULES:

  1. Whether you choose the candy or the color, your project must be inspired by chocolate.
  2. Projects need to be created during the week of the challenge (started on or after March 17, finished by March 24).
  3. Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these three requirements: include patchwork, include appliqué, have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.
  4. Incomplete or unfinished does not qualify. Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline.
  5. Link up by Sunday, March 24 at noon CDT

I really didn't want to play with this theme too much.
I gave chocolate up for Lent.

So right away I thought, hand it right over.  I love chocolate so much.

A friend of mine is always showing up with a package of chocolate kisses.
As a nurse, she always has some for her patients.
She says people are so much more cooperative with a little chocolate.

She's so smart.


I made a little reversed appliqued hand.  
This was inspired by a block I sent to Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict a few years ago for her Hands to Help challenge.

I quilted it with straight and wavy lines like the paper hand drawings.

Then I appliqued a chocolate kiss with grey fabric and added an original paper from the candy.
(I threw the candy away - if you were wondering) ugh.


Once the binding was finished, I felt like it needed a little more bling.
Deco Foil bling.


The pattern for the appliqued candy was good for Hot Melt adhesive and then
I crinkled the silver deco foil to make it look more like the candy and presto:

Hand Over the Chocolate.

This is just too cute, Carla! You are stronger than I, as I would have HAD to have eaten that/those (maybe a bag!!) kiss(ES)!!
