I released a new design. Nate & Tate
I just couldn’t help myself. I had ordered these pillow forms from Fairfield World
And I wanted to use them. I know that’s basically the opposite of anyone else. Usually, you make something and then buy the pillow forms. haha!
I also had scraps from my Mid Mod QuiltÂ Â
They are called Gridwork by Christa Watson for Benartex and they were sitting on my cutting table and calling to me…I just couldn’t resist.
So I have a difficult time naming patterns sometimes. This was one of those times. So I thought about it and struggled through…..and I finally decided to pick a few names.
Nate is named after my brother, Nathan. I am the only one who actually calls him Nate. It’s a habit from childhood. At some point when he became andadult he wanted everyone to call him “Nathan”. That’s also a a nickname because his given name is Nathaniel…so whatever.Â But he loves me so much he lets me get away with calling him Nate. Anyway, My brother is crazy-cray about Christmas. He actually has a storage unit for all of his Christmas decorations. It is insane. I am a Grinch compared to him. Oddly enough my brother also has a beard and we are Scandinavian. So I am kind of questioning if he is actually a gnome now? I mean â€¦.it could happen, right?
So Tate is just his Bestie. I mean in fantasy Gnome land because we don’t actually know a Tate…it just rhymed and I thought it was cute.
This pattern is listed in my Etsy shop and a PDf or Paper. The blocks are pieced and the rest is applique & a little embroidery.
PLease share if you make them. I would love to see these.
I hope you have a wonderful season!
