Jack and Gourdy Throw a Party!
That may well be the name of the pumpkin quilt! How fun it sounds, a party! Jack and Gourdy! They sound like really wild and crazy guys.....remember Steve Martin, now HE was a wild and crazy guy.
Here are the pumpkin blocks as they stood for the last two years. Hey Mary, where are yours?
Here is the candy corn border. You know, my battery was fading fast and it cut out as I snapped this picture. I was not sure I had gotten it, and actually, I didn't......LOL
(pause for battery charge.......)
And here is the inner border and the candy corn border on. Love this quilt. If you look back at the blocks, they look dull. But the candy corn brightness brings out the light in the faces. I am pleased with it.
Jack and Gourdy are certainly in good company, with their wide grins and shining faces. And all the candy corn you can eat! I wonder if I can come up with names for all of them?
I will audition outer borders tomorrow. I have some purples, but not a lot so it would have to be a scrappy purple border. I could do a great orange border, I have a ton of oranges for some reason.
I finally broke down and purchased a yard of a dark purple for the border. I wish I had some cording to make some orange piping to place between the candy corn and the outer border.
I may wait until tomorrow to work any more on Jack and Gourdy and see about getting some cording. And then again, it may not matter..........
Which one do you like better?
