Well, I can't give you chocolate but I can give you another Wickedly Delicious paper pieced block today.
Before I show it to you I want to say a big THANK YOU to Soma at Whims and Fancies she is and has been doing a great job with this block hop. As soon as I saw the logo for the hop I knew I wanted to participate and what I wanted to make.
I have mostly used paper piecing to create elements in traditional blocks that are difficult to rotary cut. I have also made things like five pointed stars and a bird that were designed by someone else. Designing this block was fun! I was surprised at how I could create a block from an idea in my head with just a little time doodling in EQ7. I didn't even refer to a picture while I was doing it either. I actually came up with several versions. Maybe I'll share them sometimes.
EQ7 is a great program to add to your quilting library. I started using it as EQ4. It just keeps getting better and better. Now you can even edit pictures with it. I'll have to talk about it some more another day.
So let me introduce you to Dr. Whoot. With a name like that I probably should have given him a bow tie (Dr, Who fans will know why). I didn't think of it until after the block was done. Maybe in the next version.
I hope you like him. Be sure to check out the other blocks being revealed daily through the end of the month. They are all 10" finished blocks so you can make a big quilt with them.
You can download the Pattern here is Page 1 and here is Page 2 and Instructions are here. Download ALL THREE to get everything needed for the block.
And just for fun how about a little chocolate after all. This was served at a shower I attended Friday. No recipe but I bet you can figure it out. It was a so good!

If that's not enough to make your mouth water then I'll tell you that my sweet husband gave me a bag of Lindt Lindor Dark Chocolate Truffles on my birthday. Gotta go now... I here one or is it two of them calling my name!
Yeah, I'm being WICKED!!!
