Timber!

 It's timber time says this Gnome family!


I just couldn't resist these little cuties any longer.  While we were in Spearfish this past August we took a little trip to Belle Fourche, South Dakota.  It was there in a packed little quilt shop that I found this panel and couldn't pass them up.  I think I got two.  
 
I used the asterisk block in the four corners, because I thought they looked like snowflakes.  You can find the asterisk block at So Scrappy.  I flanked the black and white gingham with a tone on tone red.  A pretty quick make and still so festive.  Did you notice my little Gnome doll (left center)?  He was made by a friend a couple years ago and is made on an empty yarn cone. His beard is part of a mop and his hat a stocking!


I like to put a split hanging sleeve on smaller wall hangings that way you only need one nail in the center.  And here is another hint, if you ever hang a quilt and the bottom doesn't stay flat against the wall, add a little double stick tape to the wall and press your quilt to it.

  2. It IS a really cute panel. I can see why you couldn’t continue to resist it. Your quilting is perfect for swirling snow to go along with the snowflake corner blocks.

  3. nice touch on the hanging sleeve - I like a split also as it helps to keep the center of the quilt (especially large ones) from sagging in the middle

  8. I can definitely see why you couldn't resist that one! Those gnomes are so cute! The asterisks work really well as snowflakes in the corners, too. Great finish, Vicki!

  9. Hi Vicki! Aren't you full of helpful hints today! I adore the Timber gnomes although it does make me think of a song. (Timber, I'm falling for you . . . that's all of the song we ever sang. HAHA) I love the swirly quilting in the beards. ~smile~ Roseanne
