A gnome for all seasons

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.

    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.
