Big Ben is a beautiful quilt that lends itself to more masculine fabrics, although it would be amazing in florals also.
The finished size is 60″ x 72″. The cover quilt uses a combination of wovens, flannels and texured fabrics. A great modern quilt. This would be a perfect college quilt just add another row to make it a college twin!
This is a fun Halloween quilt that goes together easily.
It combines piecing and abstract applique. The templates for the letters are included, all at full size. Both patterns are due to arrive this week so place your orders now.
A friend of mine comes from a quilting family. Every year, Santa tucks them in with their own special Christmas quilt so they wake up under it Christmas morning. They cuddle with it all day and then Christmas night, Santa takes it back to the North Pole.
Our family has decided that is a lot of work for one night so in our house, we asked the Elf on the Shelf to bring the quilt – and take it back to the North Pole on Christmas night!
Here are just a few of the patterns that are in the top 100 that would be perfect choices:
This pattern does not include the instructions for a quilt – but they are too darn cute to miss!
Why not start a new family tradition. If you get started now, they will be done just in time…..
The creative names for these patterns are as cute as the patterns themselves!
Gnomies is a sweet applique design that looks great on a towel, pillow, table runner – you decide!
Here We Gnome Again would be a great block of the month in applique. Why not do the gnomes in wool on a flannel background?
Gnome for the Holidays by Sandy Gervais is a pieced table runner that is sure to please!
FaLaLa is a quick pieced quilt with a Dr. Seuss type tree overseeing the gnome!
Again, A Tale of Two Gnomes would be a great block of the month and a great way to showcase plaids and checks.
Gnome for the Holidays is another obvious choice for a block of the month. Who can resist these little guys getting ready for the holidays???
Noggin uses two different four inch log cabin tools by Creative Grids. The pattern actually combines curvy, traditional and courthouse steps blocks. This could be broken down into a three month class as well.
Twister Gnomes uses the Lil Twister tool for the pinwheels with appliqued gnomes on each end – simply darling!
When five gnome patterns are in the top 100 patterns, it is time to take notice! Start a Christmas by the month program now so they can have everything done by the next holiday season!
