Celebrate Christmas with Santas' Special Reindeer
So have you decided you're going to quilt something for your granddaughter, grandson or maybe just to give it to someone special? You need to start thinking about what colors, design you would like to use and get started. I'm making 3 quilts for grandsons and have 2 out of 3 done and ready for the quilter so I feel pretty good.
I'm going to call this a wallhanging and I think its so cute. The size is 40 1/4" x 50 3/4" and could also be called a crib size. How can you not like Rudolph? This particular quilt was in "Quiltmaker" magazine, Nov/Dec 2012 called "Jingle Patch" on page 42. This is from a Patch Pal's collection and is the last one of the series. To see all the collections go to quiltmaker.com/patchpals.
You can use a lot of your scraps on this quilt especially the green background. The trees wouldn't have to be made out of the same fabric and there again you could use your stash. It's just a lot of fun to mix and match with you're fabric.
So get in the Christmas spirit and start thinking about what you'd like to sew. Hope you enjoyed the Reindeer quilt as much as I had fun sewing it.
