Chocolate Bar Quilt Block Tutorial for National Chocolate Day

Of course, chocolate has its own National Day. On Oct. 28th.. close to Halloween when all the chocolate is collected via trick or treating. Or eaten, while waiting for trick or treaters. Anyone else? Just me? :) I love chocolate, therefore it definitely HAD to have a block in my National Days scrap quilt project!

I love that you can make different scrappy wrappers, dark or milk chocolate.. nuts or not depending on your scraps.. I love this next version with the brighter colors..

Anyway, it's a quick one. Here's how it goes together.. with ZERO corner flip units!

Fabric A (background):
(1) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 1/4" sq. (+)
(1) 1 1/2 x 1 3/4"
(2) 2 1/2 x 8 1/2"

Fabric B (chocolate):
(1) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 x 1 1/4" (=)
(1) 1 1/2 x 1 3/4"
(1) 2 3/4" sq.

Fabric C (inner wrapper):
(2) 1 x 4 1/2"

Fabric D (outer wrapper):
(1) 4 1/2 x 5 1/4"

That's it for the cutting! Crazy, right? Only 12 pieces! A far cry from some of the others recently that had 50 pieces or so. This one will stitch up so fast!

--Be sure to match the symbols (~,= etc.) in the cutting instructions with the symbols in the assembly diagram.

Stitch up your chocolate bar quilt block as shown in the diagram below, being sure to use SCANT quarter inch seams.

When you're done, you will have an 8 1/2" chocolate quilt block, 8" finished in quilt.

I will leave you with one more very dark chocolate bar... :) Because, antioxidants.

And a sweet little scrappy mini quilt mockup, about 31" sq.

Now, I'm strangely craving chocolate and am off to rummage through my kitchen to see if there is any hiding anywhere. :)

Hope you enjoy this block! Another calorie free food block! I'll be back soon. Thanks for popping in for a visit today! Happy Stitching!


P.S. I love to see blocks and quilts that are made with any of my patterns. If you make any and post on social media, please come find me in any of the places listed below, and tag me so I can see! :) If you're on YouTube, check out the short musical video tutorials of some of these blocks. I'm hoping they might inspire kids, or anyone really, to learn to sew. :) Plus, they're just fun to do.


I'm keeping all of these blocks organized on the National Days quilt blocks page *HERE*if you're looking for any of the other 100+ blocks I've posted so far. Getting closer to my goal of 144 blocks! If you know someone who loves MinecraftPokemon, and or Harry Potter, check out these free sew alongs, too! :) And if you're looking for any of my print patterns, or other fun quilty gifts, check out my Etsy shop here.
