Pumpkin Auditions Are Now Closed

Oh my, what a process this has been. I know, you're wondering what the big deal is, it's only a green pumpkin. I honestly can't tell what takes me to these lengths. Call me the manic quilter I guess. I thought I would show you some of the auditions. They will all now turn into bit players in my stash. This first batch tried hard, but they just didn't make the cut, too brown, too blue, too green? I label these the pumpkin wannabes. Next the next picture is a group of what I have named the Great Contenders. These three greens are from Benartex's William's Inn by Nancy Halverson. Have you seen this line? Queen B's out in Antioch has the whole line. Yummy stuff! It's a huge line and has beautiful prints and colors. Well just when I thought I was going to use that little William's Inn plaid, I ran into This awesome woolie! It is a Maywood Woolie. It's flannel with a woolie look, too cute and it played the part of the pumpkin perfectly!
This will be my contribution to the pumpkin patch. As of right this second there are 3 pumpkins left that are looking to be picked. If you would like to join us please check it out and respond ASAP!!

Sometimes it can take a while to find just the right colour. Your green pumpkin is just perfect. Have fun with your swap.

Great choice Mar. Now that the decisions are made you can get sewing - have fun and NO, I'm not joining you all. I'll watch from the sidelines.
