I’ve said before that, to me, gnomes aren’t just a Christmas thing. They obviously have a big role in the other seasons, being garden denizens!!!
Back before the move, I bought myself this panel…
… and a pile of coordinating fabrics. My intent was to make myself a “garden quilt”. Since we now have a fabulous catio – a space for both people and cats to enjoy – it will be a “catio quilt”. While I only have my table and chairs out there now, I’m hoping to get some sort of lounger/outdoor couch, and that’s where this quilt will live.
I haven’t gotten very far yet. I’ve sketched out a plan which involves the panel surrounded by dizzy daisy and star blocks.
I got everything cut, so I can just go in and sew whenever I have a spare hour or so.
And then I put together one of the stars… just to see.
Oh, I’m going to have soooo much fun with these!!!!

Those are fun! I used to have gnomes in the garden but they haven’t survived the weather. I was just noticing they were all disintegrating. I thought they were plastic but they are crumbling away.
This one is just so fun!!!
That will certainly bring some cheery brightness into the dark days of January and February. Those gnomes are adorable.
What a fun project that is going to be.
Oh, I love it! What a great quilt!
We can tell that you really enjoy making quilts!
You are a quilt artist, in my humble opinion.
It will be a sweet and adorable quilt. I’ve been smitten with gnomes since the 80s.
What a beautiful project you have started! Your fabric is just wonderful and first star block is fabulous. Looking forward to seeing this one evolve.
I adore gnomes too and your quilt is going to be great! Those colors are so cute and I love the gnomes themselves. I’ll be the cats claim it as their own..
Love it, this quilt will be awesome!!
