Blogger's Quilt Festival - Gnome Love

This post is part of Blogger's Quilt Festival. Last year I linked up for the very first time with my first quilt I made. I didn't know what to expect and I was surprised by all the lovely comments I have received. That's why I decided to join in this year as well. I haven't made many quilts but there is one I truly love. Seeing my baby sleeping underneath it is just pure pleasure. I have also learned that I like to do sampler quilts. I'm not really into repeating one block many times and these sampler blocks just makes unique piece at the end plus it gives me the opportunity to try new techniques. This quilt was made during the Cathedral Window sampler QAL. If you want to know more about this QAL or see some blocks in detail you can check my posts No.1, No.2, No.3, No.4 and No.5.


My favorite part is the ribbon embellishment and some of the fussy cut gnomes. It is also the first time I spent couple of hours with one block. These were not difficult to make even though I'm not experienced quilter but some of them were little time consuming.




The back side is made out of teddy bears fleece. I love the polka dot binding too. I have used this fabric combo in couple of my projects and I still love it so there might be some more.

Loni jsem se poprvé účatnila festivalu dek od blogujících z celého světa. Letos se zapojuji opět. Moje volba padla na tuhle trpasličí deku, protože ta je pro mě zatím ta nej co jsem ušila. Rozhodně doporučuji nakouknout, spousta inpirace na jednom místě: Blogger's Quilt Festival

Dlouho jsem tu nebyla a nestíhám zírat. Nutně potřebuju šedou látku, potřebuju koženkový kolečka, potřebuju asi tak dva měsíce času!!! Ze srdce děkuji za inspiraci a obdivuju tvůj cit pro kombinaci látek ♥

what a fun darling quilt! You are doing very well with just having sewn your first last year. I have a question. Is it hard to quilt with a fleece backing? Do you find it wants to move?

Oh, I forgot . . . I also love the little projects at the top of your blog.
