Gobble Chain Tutorial

Gobble Chain
by: Natalia Bonner, Kathleen Whiting & Whitnee North.
Finished Quilt size 100"x120"


Materials Needed:
4 - 1/2 yard incriments of solid color material for flowers.
(This does not include backing or binding material.)
Using your jelly roll strips sew the strips together creating 8 strips sets like the top strip with ivory as your main color.
Then create 16 strips with the darker material as your main color.
Now cut your stirips into 2.5" strips. The light and dark.
Now you will sew these together to create 9 patch blocks.
You will have a large variety of 9 patch blocks. 121 total 9 patch blocks.
From your ivory material you will cut 144, 6.5" blocks.
Now lay out your nine patch blocks on point something similar to this picture.
Place all of the ivory squares into your quilt and squares on the edges. You will have a funny looking edge for now.
Sew the blocks together in strips.
Your corner will look like this.
Sew all of the rows together to look like this.
Now you will cut off he pointed edges.

Now you will count down four blocks and cut straight across the quilt.
Cut two strips of brown material into 2.5" strips. Cut a 12" strip from your ivory material. Sew the two brown strips to the edge of the ivory material.
Your quilt top should now look like this.
From your solid colors cut out four flowers and some circles for flowers. (We used the flowers in the Gobble Gobble material as inspiration.) Use a blanket stitch to applique onto the ivory background as show in the picture below.
Now quilt, bind and enjoy!
Quilt was pieced by Whitnee North. Machine quilting by Natalia Bonner and binding was done by Kathleen Whiting.

  9. It's a great quilt, but why would you piece it in a way that chops off the points of all squares in the rows where the floral strip goes? Why not just piece with triangles initially...

  12. I think I am going to try this with the Ruby jelly roll that I just got. A little variation I would do is instead of cutting it so that it cuts off the point of the squares, I would cut it so that those squares become triangles once the strips are sewn in with 1/4" seam allowance (For the applique flower section). I can't wait to get started...

  13. Hi, I am really new to quilting and wanted to know if anyone could help me calculate the amount of strips from jelly rolls I would need to make this into a twin....Thanks

  14. I made this quilt 2 years ago and it was quick and easy. Insead of making giant flowers, I chose to cross stitch a dragon ( it's about 24 inches long)in the added area. I work on the dragon in my spare time so, you guessed it, it's not finished yet, however, I have pulled it out and started working on it again. My goal is to finish before the end of February. I'd love to post a picture when the quilt top is finished.

  17. I think I would leave the pointed edges I like that I also like the wide band with the flowers I really like this pattern and doesn't seem like it would be to difficult to make I might give it a try......

  18. If you cut the quilt apart as shown, the squares next to the inserted strip will not have points - how did you do yours so that the points are intact? I love the idea of the inserted strip but would not like chopped off points.

  19. Just what I wanted to see how this is done, so now the mystery is gone I can get the materials together and a great holiday project for me to do while the sun shines and the children can play in the pool and I can sit right there with my Seweasy table keeping an eye on them! Happy Holidays everyone, from Auckland New Zealand

  20. Do not cut the quilt, make two and join together in the middle for that panel! Easy peasy, I would not even cut the ends off, would just insert a wedge on the edge before joining together. Doing one now for charity to get rid of my bits and its done on point as well and doing the same!
