What's For Dinner?

Quilting energy comes from that extra food group--the chocolate one!  Here is a whimsical look at a few of my favorite desserts, primarily constructed from silk drapery samples and remnants.  I did most of my image research on Pinterest, leading at least one friend who follows my boards to wonder about the sudden proliferation of dessert recipes, most of them chocolate.  Just research, but if you feel like cooking, I'd be happy to taste-test any of them, with a nice cup of tea, of course!

15 x 24 inches, cotton, silk, and synthetic fabrics. Fused and machine quilted.This piece was not accepted for the exhibit in Houston, but I do have 4 other quilts and 2 photos that are there this week!  You can see them if you scroll down to my previous posts.
