Gourdy's Goolish Gang

This is an older pattern that I have adored for the longest time. It makes me smile and laugh at the same time when I see it. I finally purchased the pattern in late summer and got it finished this weekend to display this month. It is hanging outside and will greet my visitors as they arrive at my door.
The pattern is designed by Threads that Bind. I love their patterns!
These stuffed pumpkins look a wee bit like Gourdy's Gang- too cute!!
If you love working with wool take a look around at their site. You won't be disappointed.

PS, I used the wonderful woolie flannel that looks like wool for the background. It was designed by Bonnie Sullivan for Maywood Studios. It is a terrific alternative if you need large pieces of wool and are on a budget.

  20. The Gang turned out very good. I have noticed that many of the patterns for larger wool projects call for flannel backgrounds.

    I love the quality of Maywood fabrics

  22. The quilting on the red and green quilting is incredible. You don't see that any more. Your block looks like it is part of the antique quilt. I had to look twice. Great!
