A Christmas Tradition

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:

So This Is Christmas
A Tale Of Two Gnomes

This pattern does not include the instructions for a quilt – but they are too darn cute to miss!

Holly Jolly Gnomes Pattern

Why not start a new family tradition. If you get started now, they will be done just in time…..

The Gnomes have it!

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?

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!

So This is Christmas

This quilt is soooo cute and got rave reviews in Houston – whimsical and cute – with that awe factor that makes everyone smile! Everything is pieced except the reindeer – which are appliqued. Darling!
