The Gobstopper Quilt is quilted, has its binding firmly stitched in place, and has been delivered to my Etsy Store. - now sold.
The story behind the name of this quilt is one where I asked my 15 year old son to suggest a name for this quilt. His immediate 15 year old boy response was "The Circle Quilt". I asked him to perhaps think outside of the square, and promptly named it The Gobstopper Quilt - his favorite candy purchased by his Gran as a treat.
The backing for this quilt is a vivid red fabric with large white polka dots. I think it works well with overall bright and cheerful theme of the quilt. This backing fabric is one that I insisted on washing before use, but found that there was no color run at all. Red fabric is notorious for bleeding into other fabrics, none was noted, the rinse water ran clear. Nice!
It feels great to have this one finished. It is satisfying to know that those nasty curved blocks can be tackled by machine, and actually come together as a full circle quite well. I definitely will make another quilt with curved piecing.
This quilt is now available for sale in my Etsy Store. Feel free to ask any questions you may have. - SOLD
