This is my house. It's full of love, chocolate and patchwork.
It is the second quilt I make for the Twelve by Twelve challenge group.
When I chose the "Chocolate" theme a few months ago, I really didn't know what I would come up with.
As I didn't have much brown in my boxes, I started by dyeing some chocolate fabric.Then, for two months, I wrote down every word chocolate made me think of. It soon became clear that many of these words, feelings, facts, things were related to my family, and therefore to my house too. I decided to pick the more significant words and to write them on my chocolate fabric. This would be the walls of the house.The quilting, and the house shape, are inspired by drawings my children made when they were little boys. The crazy log cabin blocks are leftovers from a very old project. They were begging me to use them in this quilt. I couldn't resist.
