I saw this quilt last week on flickr and I knew I wanted to make my own gnomes.
(from mayaeloiseboutique)

I decided to give paper piecing a try today and it went pretty well. I followed the same tutorial from Artisania that mayaeloiseboutique did and I think they turned out pretty cute.

I'm not sure what I'll do with these little guys, but perhaps I'll bind them off and hang them somewhere in the apartment.


  1. That is so cute! I hadn't seen it yet. I think I may need some gnomes, too!

  2. Well done!! I'm totally digging your fabric choices, I think they're so darn cute! Did you find the tutorial easy to follow? Thanks for the linky love, I can't wait to see what you make next :)

  3. Love that you used the patterned fabrics for the gnome's clothes -- the Denyse Schmidt especially makes it look like a little gnome kimono. So cute.

    And yes, I know I am so late to the gnome party.


I love to hear from you and I like to send responses to comments so make sure to leave a way for me to do that!
