Hi everyone!

Each month we will be sharing the current Chocolatier Block of the Month 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.

April's blocks are called Irish Chain String and Log Cabin quilt block! They use string piecing and the classic Log Cabin. We'll be making one of each block.
