Gnome for the Holidays Applique Block

We would be remiss is we didn’t share a Santa… Wee Folk Art style. Here is our little Gnome for the Holidays Applique Block. I started with our basic Gnome Applique Block, increased the pattern by 200%, added a beard (there is great swirly detail in the beard that is hard to discern in the photo) and dressed him in a Santa suit. This morning Bug told me we needed a Santa in the gnome house. “You’re right” I said. I was thinking about some of the changes I would make to the basic Wooden Peg Gnomes, and then thought I should include the design in an applique block. Unlike most of our applique blocks that are 6″ x 6″, this little guy is 6″ x 12″. He can easily be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. I’m thinking if enlarged, it would make a great banner! The pattern for the Gnome for the Holiday Applique Block can be found HERE or with our FREE appliques. Enjoy!



  1. He is perfect! I am just finishing up a small Christmas quilt [better late than never] and I had one more long block to do something with. This will be perfect. [I used several of your applique blocks with Christmas colored cotton appliques.] Thanks for sharing all your talents with us and for free. Christmas Blessings to you, Michelle and your lovely family.
