Who's ready to hit the pool?  School's out and it's time to spend some time in the water.  Month 6 of the Chocolatier Block of the Month Club looks like that crystal clear blue water.  Now's the time to start the next block. 
Choco #6 2 blocks
Today, the Month #6 Block Pattern for Chocolatier is now available.  Check your emails and mailboxes!

2 blocks for this month.  We have Card Trick and Bleeding Heart this month.  This is the introduction to appliqué.

Block #1 Card Trick.

Block #2 Bleeding Heart.    In this photo you can witness my mistake.  I accidentally used an old (and incorrect) template for the quarter circles.  Somehow I didn't even notice until everything was fused and stitched.  The quarter circles should extend all the way into the seam allowance - so there should not be any dark blue print peeking out at the edges.  Don't worry - YOU have the correct templates.  I debated really hard about completely redoing the block.  But I really wanted that Alison Glass fabric as the background and I didn't have enough to completely start over.  So.  There it glaringly is for now.  The mistake should disappear when I sew the quilt top together, but for now, it's there plain as day.  Nobody's perfect?
