Chocolatier BOM - August

Hi everyone!

Each month we will be sharing the current Chocolatier Block with you - we're grateful you've chosen to sew with us!

For all of the blocks in the Chocolatier quilt, we recommend pressing all seams open. Some of the pieces in these blocks can get small and pressing open can help reduce bulk when multiple seams collide.

June's blocks are called Rosebud and Arbor Window and use lots of little pieces, so precision is key! We'll be making one of each block. 

Like most months, we're starting off with HST units. those will be attached to a Chocolate triangle. Make 4 of these shapes.

Next, sew the rows to the White Polka Dot and Yellow fabric. This will make a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square.

Be VERY careful pressing these shapes. you can see that my block became a little distorted. 

Arbor Window is a simple block. Make sure all your squares are the cut well; this will really help your block turn out.

Carefully trim the block to 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"When you've finished this month's blocks, hop on over to Instagram and show them off using the hashtags #chocolatiersampler and #PCFchocolatier - we love seeing what you make!

See you next month! - Kara
