Now that summer is gone and autumn has entered the Thicket, evenings can get quite chilly. Gnomes are very resourceful and waste nothing. Scraps of material left over from other projects get squirreled away to make quilts. Although this quilt can be sewn on a sewing machine, I highly suggest that you hand piece the quilt together, just like the gnome females do! What better gift could you give your gnome friends than a snuggly quilt to curl up with on chilly evenings?
4” x 5” small print cotton for backing
4” x 5” piece of flannel for batting

Cut out the backing and the batting.
