Chocolate Confessions


Chocolate Confessions, a commissioned piece, was a sweet assignment. It afforded me the opportunity to express someone’s chocolate obsession. Hmmm, that would be a fairly rare condition, don’t you think?

The subject of this piece, Wendi Hiebert, confesses that she is a chocoholic. She is much more than that: she is quite a theobroma connoisseur, having attended tastings and seminars, in North America and abroad, concerning this aromatic confection. Wendi writes a weekly food and recipe column for The Record in Kitchener, Ontario, and is especially happy when she can include chocolate as an ingredient in one of her recipes.

She has chocolate every day, so I thought it fitting to fashion a chocolate mandala sun, sending its dark rays to warm her days and her palate.

The rays also innumerate the many ways chocolate manifests itself in her life (expressed in her own handwriting), including her miniature poodle, a much-beloved pet named Cocoa.

On the back of the quilt, I put this statement: Both confessions and confections can assuage the soul. Many of us can attest to this, and you can happily substitute any other sweet which happens to be your own little personal addiction. But chocolate does reign supreme. A simple search string–chocolate quotes–will reveal at least 3 million! (And that includes collections, not just singular quotes.) Here’s one that sounds like a plan:

Put “eat chocolate” at the top of your list of things to do today.
That way, at least you’ll get one thing done.
