mini seven: gnome


Why, hello there! A sweet little gnome and his mushroom

Snail pattern by Jennifer Ofenstein


Visited by a friendly woodland snail.

I wanted to do at least one paper pieced quilt, and with the gnome thing I had going so far, these cute guys were the obvious choice.

Once again, Figgy Pudding (with a linen mushroom stump and random stash white) I created the creatures, then played around until I could get them to look like a quilt. I really like the little windows-onto-the-woods thing I ended up with.

It's about 14"x16.5" and I don't know if I'll be able to give this one up!

I don't know how you're going to give up ANY of them! They're all individually awesome, and the sum total is just incredible.
