It's a finish!

I think this block is known by many names - Rising Sun, Cog Wheel, Wagon Wheel. Each of my blocks contains a little chocolate so I'm calling my quilt Chocolate Swirls. ( And when I use it I will be covered in chocolate. Oh, yeah!) I started making this quilt back in October 2018.
I enjoyed making these blocks. They were machine pieced and then appliqued to the background. I finished the top back in July 2019.
I started hand quilting on February 2, 2020. I did big stitch hand quilting with brown, white and red perle #12. I love hand quilting. I like to feel the fabrics soften as I stitch along. I like to feel the texture as I stitch along.
I found I had enough of the background fabric for binding.
I used a lighter brown for the backing. All the stitching makes the back look like a whole cloth quilt.
And now that I've enjoyed the process over a period of years I get to enjoy the quilt for a period of years. Ah, there's nothing like reaping the fruits (and chocolates) of my labor!
