Reindeer Overload

I was really honoured to be asked to contribute towards a collaboration quilt for this years Christmas Edition of the Fat Quarterly Review.

Photo borrowed from Lynne
We were shown the image which inspired the quilt, given our fabrics, and asked to design and sew five identical blocks. 

There was a special request that I provide reindeer for the quilt.

As with so many of these kinds of projects, I really do think that the sum of the parts is much much better than the individual parts. I love how the blocks all come together to create a dramatic and graphic finished quilt and I am really proud to have been a part of such a talented line-up of quilters - Nicky, Susan, LynneJoanne and Joanna.

Doesn't it just look like the most snuggly Christmas Jumper ever!?

I must admit that I got a bit carried making reindeer and couldn't resist  another wee reindeer project.

You will also find the details of both of these patterns in Issue 19 of Fat Quarterly Review.
