Chocolate Windmills

Using up the scraps from the Carole's Square Dance Mystery, I made another quilt top.  It often happens to me that I get distracted by the scraps from a quilt, and sometimes even end up finishing the by-product before the first quilt is finished (case in point... the dreaded Indian Orange Peel ordeal). This time the original quilt top and the "using up the scraps" quilt top were finished in the same week.

The fabrics in this quilt are all chocolate themed (except the plain background fabric).

No matter how much you are are tempted to, don't lick it. Trust me, it doesn't taste as good as it looks!

I hope that it will soon be a finished quilt with a snuggly minky backing and ready for gift giving season.

Here are the sister quilts on the clothesline... they are from the same genetic material but put together differently!

Thank you to Carole for this fun quiltmaking adventure!


  1. I love both quilts!! Maybe...I like little sister quilt even better!

  2. What great quilts! When you use Minky for a backing, do you use batting also?

  3. What a fun way to use up the scraps from Square Dance! Thanks for quilting along!!

  4. Aren't you clever!?! Great use of the leftovers--who doesn't love chocolate leftovers? :)

  5. Both quilts turned out beautifully! So what's next?
