Chocolatier BOM - September

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.

September's blocks are called Maple Leaf and Baseball and use half-square triangles and curves techniques. This is the last of the sampler blocks, and we'll be making one of each block. 


We'll start with 4 HST units and 1 Stitch-n-Flip unit. Layout the squares and sew them together

Sew into rows.

Quick and easy! Now, let's tackle curves.

First, cut out your pieces.

I was able to learn how to use a seam roller from Violet Craft at Glamp Stitchalot 2 and I highly recommend it for pressing curved pieces!


Pin the pieces in place and then press towards the while polk dot (or light aqua). 

Trim the block as shown in the instructions.

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
