All Of The Other Reindeer And Rudolph

I finally finished the reindeer quilt using that adorable little guy created by Lorna at 
Sew Fresh Quilts. The reindeer were pretty easy, but for some reason I totally messed up the borders 
(one was wavy...ugh!) and I had to do a lot of ripping. Then I accidently cut one of the borders in a 
wrong place and had to do some rearranging. What the heck was going on with this quilt!
I was beginning to think Santa had it out for me and I was on the Naughty List or something.

Then it was cloudy, rainy, and dark outside...indoor photo time!


The quilt measures about 45" x 47" and has machine embroidery lettering.

Plus...
Rudolph definitely has a shiny nose.
I used a little of Therm O Web's red Deco Foil to make that happen.
I even washed it and his nose is still shining! Love it!

  2. Glad you persevered with all of the set backs...that's when it gets put in my UFO pile and never gets finished. Such a cute quilt and happy to hear that Rudolph's nose is still shiny and will happily guide Santa!

  3. That is just gorgeous. Isn't it funny how some quilts will just be naughty all the time you're making it. It was well worth persevering though I think. Mind you, if you don't like it after all the trouble it caused you, I would be prepared to give it a home for you!

  4. Oh my gosh, I love this quilt! I'm thinking this has so many pieces to cut, piece, sew, stitch.....I don't think I have ever seen a quilt with all the reindeer names. This is a treasure quilt for sure.

  5. Did you embroider the words and reindeer names? This is a pretty cute quilt. None of your struggles are showing here. All your reindeer are on their best behavior for their day to show off your quilting skills.
