Gnome for the Holidays

Let's finish up this year in a festive way, adding some fun with Gnome for the Holidays!

I don't know about you, but I've been seeing gnomes everywhere - quilt patterns, embroidery patterns, sales fliers, websites, and stores. They're so darn cute, I had to make one myself!

Gnome for the Holidays is so easy with fusible applique. The plump little gnome next to his Christmas-y snow-covered house, plus the wonky, snow covered trees makes such an adorable little table decoration!

As a table runner, Gnome for the Holidays measures 14" x 36".

Or make a small wall hanging by removing the right hand section with the extra trees - it would be just as cute!

If your seeing a lot of gnomes and just have to have one, the Gnome for the Holidays table runner pattern is now available in my Etsy shop. As usual, with a new pattern release, special pricing is going on now through CyberMonday, November 30. 

And if your interested in a learning how to use a freemotion zigzag to stitch around those appliques, avoiding all the fabric turning, check out last week's tutorial, Freemotion Applique.

Happy Quilting!
