Gobble Gobble is Complete

 I'm excited to share that I finished my Gobble Gobble quilt this week.  Gobble Gobble is a pattern designed by Lori Holt.  Mine measures 75" x 75".


It was just getting dark around 6pm when I finished this last night.  But with the weather the way it is this week and the prediction of possibly more snow, I took my chances to get some photos.  I didn't use the regular sashing pieces.  I just kept piecing 2.5" strips of miscellaneous teals and bright blues.  I LOVE IT! All the of pieces that make up the turkeys are either circles or dots of some sort.  I was super excited when I found that border fabric in my stash that someone gifted to me a while back.

I quilted it with bright blue thread using my Circle Lord giant template board called Egyptian Eye.  I used a small dot red fabric for binding, but a solid red for the inner border.  Man, again... I just love the way the sashing fell.  I'm going to definitely do this scrappy odd-sized sashing idea again on another quilt.


The back is a fun mix as well.  I gathered my two Thanksgiving/fall novelty fabrics.  I didn't have enough.  I added the other "Gobble" block that I didn't use on the front because I didn't think there was enough contrast between the green fabric and the blue background.  It's perfect for the back.  Then I added more bright blue with dots that seems to be landing in a bunch of quilts right now.  It's a fabric I bought a ton of at a garage sale.  I remember someone cut weird shapes out of it.  They may have used it to make a clown costume or something like that.  There were weird jagged edges and long pieces missing (like they made long pants.). Either or, it was a perfect deal and fun to have it land on this quilt.

There's even a recipe for pumpkin bars on the novelty fabric that looks really yummy!

I love your background and sashing combination. I've never seen both in different shades of the same colour before, and it's certainly a very effective choice. All those birds must have taken ages to piece! You get full marks for perseverance!
