TOMTE or GNOME? from Kwilty Pleasures

A Tomte and Gnome are really one in the same.
The pattern I am talking about today is a Scandanavian TOMTE design.

I looked up TOMTE (pronounced tom-ta) and by definition
a Nordic mythological creature associated with winter solstice and Christmas season.
GNOME is also a mythological creature who is
an ageless and often deformed dwarf who is a good luck charm.

This is my finished TOMTE quilt.
I think of the little guy as my
OSU Gnome named BUCKY

As I was finishing this quilt....I also had a Modern Tree Quilt to bind.
I used the free tutorial ...

WONDER WHY it took me so long! from Kwilty Pleasures

To finish and post about this quilt that began in  2021.
This was a "sewcial distance" challenge
between Kim Hensley and me.

I sewed it at the beach but it sat for awhile.
Kim was learning to use her new
INNOVA longarm and needed some practice quilts.

I was the girl for her! I have quilts just waiting!
Her new business is Happily Every Quilting.
She's still a full time VIP for Nationwide but
when she retires in a few years, this will be her
FUN full time job!
She is a super Disney Fan, has a family season ...

MODERN CHRISTMAS TREES from Kwilty Pleasures

Yes you saw the finished top.
But I wanted to make sure you know
about the process and the free tutorial 
by Amy Smart, find it here!

But first, I made some sample blocks.
I will work this into a table runner for a Christmas Gift.

I love the tutorial that Amy Smart offers.
You can find it here.
She also has a You Tube Video that you will want to look up.

She talks about how to stack 6 fabrics
and cut them.  THEN by just
switching one tree fabric from bottom to the top...
you have 6 different ...

Tomte Xmas from Kwilty Pleasures

Stitching things off my UFO list!
This little gnome quilt TOMTE is sew adorable.
How could I resist.

I cut it out in fall of 2021 and intended to make
at a quilt retreat. But that didn't happen.

Back home last winter...the stitching began.
It went together sew quickly!

you know my Gnome had to have a OSU hat!

He's now at the longarmer and he will return
before the the first kickoff!

UFO INSANITY! from Kwilty Pleasures

I thought I was doing sew good!
I had finished 3 UFOs in 3 Weeks!
I had started these patterns all last fall!
Then they waited...

A quilt top from this pattern was finished July 2021!
I just didn't have the courage to applique the very large 
SWELL SANTA onto it!

And this pattern was cut and partially sewn.

I am working on posts for these 3 finishes but
in the meantime...I forgot all about these 3 projects.

I need a small Christmas Charley Harper
wall hanging for my guest bedroom.

I have no idea what these summer ...

WHEN LITTLE GIRLS QUILT! from Kwilty Pleasures

When you have someone you can pass on the passion
of do just that.
For many, that is a grandchild...
for me, that person is my great niece, GEMMA

My Gemma, is now 11 years old and she finished her
first quilt December 2021 when she was 10.

She immediately wanted to begin another quilt
 and of course we can make that happen.

She found an Alex Anderson Rail Fence pattern
from the Learn to Quilt book by Alex.
She pulled some fabrics from my stash
for a rainbow quilt!

 I decided it was time for Gemma's ...

FLAIRING CHARM PATTERN from Kwilty Pleasures

Because I always have more projects started than I realize...
I didn't disappoint myself while at the beach.
I took a fun pattern along called "FLAIR'
 and thought I could work on this if I have time.
It uses 4 charm packs and background fabrics
cut into charm sizes of 5"

Of course I had enough charm packs,
actually CHRISTMAS charm packs.
The Christmas Card, Eat Drink and be Ugly,
The Cookie Exchange and Mistletoe.

I cut lots of scrappy low volume 5" squares.

What I didn't realize was...the pattern instructions
were to lay the skinny strips ...

STARGAZER TESTER! from Kwilty Pleasures

I feel very lucky to be a pattern tester for
Frannie B Quilt Company.
Corrine Wells comes up with some great designs.
The mission is taking designs of fabric and blocks 
from traditional colors and style into modern beauties.

Stargazer had me working my testing skills to the limit!

I always make test blocks as part of my testing process.
 These Charley Harper stars will become units in another project.

I soon found out there were LOTS of flying geese.
That's not sew bad, but the instructions made them
one at a time....brutal.
Of course, that was the ...

FIRST 2022 FINISH 4-PATCH SLICE from Kwilty Pleasures

One of the sewcial distance quilts Kim Hensley and I sewed in 2021
was making a fun 4-Patch Slice quilt.
I  finished it as my first 2022 project!
Sometimes we begin, get the top done and then it’s timing
to get the quilts quilted and bound.

I used Wonder fabric line by Kate and Birdie
and it was perfect for a baby quilt.
The pattern I selected was by Inspiring Creations.
I like the different layouts she offered
and the wider insert strips.

Kim used some of her Bonnie & Camile fabrics.

I loved the way my baby quilt turned ...

FRIENDS WHO CUT LOOSE! from Kwilty Pleasures

Who would have ever imagined that in January, 2022
we would still be dealing with the damn corona virus
 and all the ugly heads that have mutated.

I could go on a rant right now...
but that won't help get shots into arms.

Sew, I will talk about how I deal with the insanity.
Sewing has saved me and this
"CUT LOOSE" pattern along with my sewcial distance partner,
 Kim Hensley, gives me focus and goals to meet for a beautiful finish!

This quilt is our 7th sewcial distance sewing
"apart/together" since April, 2020 

I had a great ...

Do you ever have that one FQ bundle that you just can't cut.
NOT because you don't want to use it...but because
you keep changing your mind about the pattern you want to use.

I love all fabrics by Zen Chic and her beautiful pattern designs.
I have had this bundle of White Christmas for...
well many years.
Its so amazing and I want to make sure whatever pattern
I will be the best pattern to showcase it!

Brigitte Heitland, Zen Chic Designer
offered this FREE Christmas Star Pattern...
I really love it.  You can ...

2022 IS HERE! from Kwilty Pleasures

Happy New Year to all my followers.
After 10 years of blogging...I am still here
and sew are you.  Thank you for hanging in with me.
I often think about throwing in the blog towel,
but I still enjoy it...even if it has fallen from favor
in the social media world. 

I guess I still have more to say!

How can it be 2022 already.
2021 has been almost as bad as 2020 with COVID still
busting our chops.  BUT  fully vaccinated makes me feel
much safer and sew much wiser!

I do have lots of new projects ...
