Width: 10.75"   Length: 8.25"

Materials/Techniques: I hand-quilted the chocolate fabric, then attached the quotations, rickrack, and buttons by hand. The quotations were printed on an ink-jet printer and then heat-transferred.

Artist Statement: This is such a deliciously decadent fabric! I decided it deserved some indulgent philosophy and added the chocolate lovers' rationalizations. I am grateful to the women who gave me the fabric and buttons: Deborah Cassety of Tennessee, Elizabeth Minnis of Oklahoma, Sylvia Rosenshine of Virginia, and Odessa Via of Virginia.

Dedication: Dedicated to chocolate lovers, of course. It's one of the joys that last.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $50.00 for the AAQI.
