Are you ready for a sneak peek? Today we’re sharing a preview of the “love”-ly Gnomes in Love collection designed by Tara Reed.
We asked Tara about the inspiration behind her new collection. Here is what she said: “While gnomes have been gracing gardens for years, the nordic gnomes with ample beards, round noses, and no faces have become the hot new decorating trend. Traditionally associated with Christmas, they are now making us smile all year long!…Gnomes have become one of my favorite art subjects when I want to do something bright and joyful. As I painted the hearts that would wrap around one gnome and be tossed in the air by another like confetti, I had a big smile on my face. I’m excited to share Gnomes in Love with you and hope they bring joy and love to all of your sewing and quilting projects!”
Of course, with this being a Valentine themed collection, Tara loaded these prints with shades of red, pink, gray, and white. Her tiny gnomes are the most adorable little characters, with boxes of chocolate, heart garlands, heart confetti, and more. We love the supporting prints featuring hearts and tonal dots in varying sizes!
One thing we absolutely LOVE about this fabric line is the fun Gnomes in Love Apron and Hot Pad fabric panel. This panel features pieces and instructions to make a gnome-themed valentine apron and coordinating hot pads. Panel size is 36″ x 43 1/2″.
We can’t wait to start creating with Gnomes in Love! We’re dreaming up quilts, aprons, pillows, table runners and more. What will you make with Gnomes in Love?
