I DID IT!! Talkin’ Turkey is a quilt top!! Yahoo!!
The borders really make this quilt sing, don’t they? I’m super happy with it. Eventually I think it will be on my bed at Christmas time. That’s one of the reasons I make it bigger. I think it’s 96″ x 96″ now.
If you missed yesterday’s blog post you likely don’t know that I ended up having trouble on the borders. Read about that here if you missed it. I did…and I ended up with this as an end result. What do you think?
I’m still tempted to go back and make that corner a solid neutral square instead of a half square triangle…but at this point, I don’t know it really make a difference at all. The only people who will really notice anything is someone trying to be a member of the quilt police and I don’t really care what they think.
I am so happy this is done. I can’t tell you. Of all the quilts I have EVER pieced I believe this one to be the most intense. I have filled SO MANY bobbins on this quilt…making it bigger didn’t help.
I would like to put it on the frame and get it quilted but I have a big stack of charity quilts that need attention…and I best get to them first. That’s okay. I don’t think I have a good backing for this at my house anyway. I’m fairly confident that this will be with me for a long time so I want a backing that I’m going to love.
So next week it will be a new UFO for me…I’m not sure what I’m picking but here’s my list to choose from. Which do you think it should be?
