,Hi Everybody! I have a new ** MONTHLY MINI SERIES** to share. I designed a whole line of mini quilts with Gnomes. YAY!! As you know I have been captured by little gnomes for a few years. I have made a few gnome quilts. I never really paid attention to gnomes until I took and ancestry test and found out that I had some Swedish heritage ( I knew I was Scandinavian from my maternal side, the Swedish is from my father’s side) anyway in their Christmas folklore are the Tomtes. I just thought they were cute and I have been captured by them. So I designed a monthly mini series featuring a different one each month. I gave them Scandinavian names to go with my theme. You can find all of these in my ETSY shop HERE ( or the tab listed on my blog) and if you collect all 12 at one once you get 2 free.
These are wool applique on cotton background. But you can use any fabrics or form of applique that you prefer.
It starts with Olaf:
This is Olaf. All of the Mini quilts measure 29×31 finished. So they are great for displaying the fun gnomes.
