Norm & Nanette

This fabulous and fun gnome quilt was made by Megan.  The pattern is called Norm & Nanette by Elizabeth Hartman.

Megan and I discussed quilting options as she wasn't 100% sure if she wanted custom or all over quilting.  Megan's concern was how all over quilting would look on the gnome faces.  We looked at a few different pantographs and I suggested using a thinner thread to ensure that the quilting would be subtle.  Megan selected the Novaya Zhizn pantograph and I used 100 wt. Invisifil thread in a dark peach color.  

I think the piecing is the star of this pattern and the all over quilting with delicate thread works perfectly to play a supporting role.

Megan used a fun group of woodland prints for a lovely pieced backing.
