Hello Fall Blog Hop, First Day And My Day

"Hello Fall" is happening today...yay! I love being on the first day of a blog hop because then I have all week to relax and enjoy the amazing projects. Thanks to my favorite hostess, Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks, for this great idea and for getting us all lined up and ready to hop. As usual, she rocks my world with her inspiration and creativity! 

I love fall, mostly because Halloween happens during those months. Anything to do with that holiday makes me very happy! Though it was hard, I went with JUST FALL...no Halloween. 

Celebrating Fall Gnomes, 36" x 36" table topper


Did you know that there are a lot of websites that have names for gnomes? I didn't, but now I do!
I grabbed four of them for my fall gnomes.

Gnorbitt

Krankle 


Quilllz


Anywhere you sit at the table puts a gnome facing your way. 


Fabric from my stash worked great for this. Most of it is Northcott's Canvas fabric that I love!


Of course I used my favorite iron-on adhesive...Therm O Web EZ Print Lite Sheets. No need to trace, just run through your inkjet printer.


You really need to check out all these blogs to see what they've made!

You can find the pattern for Celebrating Fall Gnomes in my Etsy shop HERE.

My Oliso purple iron is my favorite for pressing fabric. Having it pop-up when I set it down still amazes me. I have to be careful when I'm at a quilt retreat because I MIGHT forget their regular iron doesn't pop-up. That could be bad!

Oliso is having a sale on the vacuum sealers and as one of their affiliates, I said I'd share the codes to some really good deals even though it isn't sewing related.

Hi Carol! Aww, your Fall gnomes are so darn cute. I'm surprised there isn't an element of Halloween there but you kept it strictly Fall. I'll bet your Monkey boys like this table topper. Take care. ~smile~ Roseanne

What an adorable quilt. Those chubby little folks holding onto the jumbo apple and pumpkin make me smile. What a great way to start my day thinking of those guys! Thanks so much for sharing another wonderful project. Hope you're holding up in these wacky times.

Carol said...

Very cute! I like the way you turned the gnomes so everyone has a right-side-up one in front of them. :) The brown outer border and orange binding are perfect for fall.

Carla said...

Oh, my friend, this is the sweetest fall gnome table topper. I LOVE the names and had no idea that was a "thing". Thank you for going on the journey with me. You rock my stitching world every day!

Vicki in MN said...

The first thing I noticed that you had placed a Gnome just right so everyone sitting down had one facing them. Such cute elements in there.

piecefulwendy said...

What a grand way to kick off this blog hop - with gnomes! They are so cute. Clever idea, too, having them situated so everyone at the table can see one facing them.

Karen Wheeler said...

Would you also need to reverse the gnome pattern on the printer version since it goes one the back of fabrics?
