Sherry’s Gnome quilts!!
Sherry made two gnome quilts for her boys. I posted a picture of them as I was quilting them, and said I didn’t know the name of the patterns...because I’m often asked what they are. Two wonderful ladies told me, one on Facebook and one on Instagram, that the name of the pattern is A Tale of Two Gnomes by Abbey Lane Quilts.
When Sherry dropped her quilts off, she showed me a picture of the quilting she saw on the quilt sample in a quilt shop. It was an all over swirl. I was excited because Patricia Ritter and I have a design with swirls called Twirl©️. I hadn’t quilted it out yet, and was so excited to finally quilt it on not one but both of these cute gnome quilts. Twirl is available at Urban Elementz or go to: https://www.urbanelementz.com/twirl.html
I used a cream thread from A&E in their Perma Core 30 Tex line...my two favorite colors are Dyed Natural and Antique Cream.
He’s one of my favorites!!! Those swirls or “twirls” are so cute!!
Here is her version with a toupe fabric back ground.
I used my favorite 8020 Winline cotton/poly blend batting. It’s a little thicker than Hobbs and softer too.
Another couple of close ups!!
