Eiffel Sunrise - Project Quilting

"Eiffel Sunrise," 9" x 15", made by Pam Geisel for Project Quilting, Season 10, Challenge 6: Craving Chocolate, Feb. 2019 in Yellow Springs, Ohio

Challenge recap for "Craving Chocolate":

Be inspired by chocolate.

Sure, I thought about the candy, and also the color. Then I remembered the movie "Chocolat" which was set in France (although not specifically Paris). I selected fabrics that had some brown tones but still had lots of color.

I used a paper piece pattern designed by Jennifer Ofenstein of that I also used a few years ago to make this Eiffel Tower with Island Batik fabrics in blues and greens.

I had the perfect yarn and I loved how it looked couched around the inside of the inner border that I also used it on the outside of the border.

Bits of chocolate color throughout. I really like the addition of the couched yarn around the inner border. Great detail!!
