Let’s face it, the holidays are here and it’s time to pull out the festive decor, spread the cheer, and sprinkle the fairy dust everywhere. That’s why, I thought it would be fun to add this Gnome quilt block to my collection.
There has been much debate of this little guy in my household. My girls insist that he looks like a wizard or one of the seven dwarfs and Mr. TSL is wondering why the beard is not bigger. So, whichever camp you are in, I hope you enjoy the block.

Now, if you are loving the block but know that time is tight for the holidays, consider turning the 12″ finished block into a pillow. Just add a simple border around the finished block to accommodate your pillow form and finish it off with this easy pillow cover.
Or how about a table runner? You can stitch three or more finished blocks together and add a simple border. Here are a few mock-ups to give you some inspiration.
