gnomes! I personally love nn things gnomes and so a quilt featuring a little guy would be awesome. They're easy to accessorize too, the little gnome could be in the forest, could be amongst flowers, or could be wearing a pretty tiara attending a tea party! There are so many options!

An idea for another quilt? Unfortunately I don't have a link to one, but it would be cool to have a crown (like a King or Queen's crown with multi-colored jewels) and you could use golden/variegated threads all around the crown. Lovely.
