I still used the main ideas from the larger quilt design including the leaping Reindeer with Rudolph leading the pack.
The Reindeer were hand stitched with silver thread around the outer edges, whilst my snowflakes were stitched on the sewing machine, with special silver machine thread.
After adding the wadding and lovely soft red backing fabric, I decided to hand stitch around certain parts of the quilt with embroidery thread, starting in the centre to hold everything together.
The quilt was finished by folding the backing fabric over and machine stitching it down.
I cant wait to display it this Xmas and who knows what I'll create at this years Christmas Bonanza. There is talk of Reindeer draught excluders and Robin doorstops! How exciting!
