O Christmas Gnomes

October 16, 2021

Gnomes are wildly popular these days. We are seeing them in fabrics as well as a variety of projects and home decor items.

Pattern available online here
Malya at KMIS made the most adorable wall hanging with the gnome-theme. ‘O Christmas Gnomes’ is a pattern by Around the Bobbin. It was fun to watch her put it all together.

The pattern includes instructions for two sizes:

Short (5 rows) approximately 45″ high X 16-1/2″ wide
Tall (6 rows) approximately 53″ high X 19″ wide (Malya made this one.)

Per Around the Bobbin: The quilt is constructed row-by-row. The bodies are made by strip-piecing body strips with background strips to create even spacing for the geometric tree shape. After the rows are completed, the rows are centered and sewn together, and the sides are trimmed.

All the little pieces + Steam-a-Seam
The first part is pieced!

Penny watched in fascination as Malya did all the piecing, applique, and binding using the LAURASTAR Smart I and the BERNINA 770. She’s always amazed how quilters make the BERNINA and the BSR sing. So many pieces, but SEW worth the outcome!

Applique Easy with the LAURASTAR
Free-Motion with the B 770 and BSR
‘O Christmas Gnomes’ is currently on display at the Tampa Location. Do you want to make one of your own? You can purchase the pattern on our website. If you’re in Tampa, come on by the store and ask Malya about it. It was a fun project!
