LET THE REINDEER GAMES BEGIN!!!!

"Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!

On, Comet! on Cupid! on, Donner and Blitzen!

To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!


Most of us grew up with this "Night Before Christmas", as a child all kinds of things filled my head.
Now it is time to fill a quilt top with our favorite reindeer. We have included Rudolph because didn't he save the day?

So.....without any further delay....

Here is the first of my nine Reindeer, DASHER!! you can find the template here.



Caroll is showing her embroidery work..HERE.http://westmichquilter.blogspot.com/

Today I am including the names that you can use or not use? You can switch the names around? It is your party and you can do what you want!!!! you can find them here If you do not have facebook, I will be happy to forward an attachment to you so you can play along as well.

Caroll may show the same reindeer as I am, she may not. All we can promise you is that there are 11 reindeer in all and you have the option to use all eleven or just nine. We all know that Santa had eight reindeer and Rudolph. You can follow my design or not....that is the beauty of all of this, it is a " WHAT EVER" kind of deal.

When you get your block done, it would be fabulous if you posted it on the flickr group here

NOW LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!


PSS....so you all know Caroll is the one who drew all of the reindeer, I had the idea and told her about it and she drew the reindeer....so now we are sharing (can you tell I have been around kids too long)....

  1. Love this! So cool. Quick (maybe stupid) question, though. I didn't see any comments regarding printing the templates in an enlarged size. Are they an "as is" template for the 12.5" background square assuming one is using a standard U.S. 8.5"x11 sheet of copy/printer paper?

    Thanks!

  2. I am unable to download the cute reindeer because I do not have a Facebook account. Apparently, this is how Scribd works. Sorry cause it sure is cute.

  14. I grabbed your reindeer games button and am excited -- can i start one more project? this looks like fun. My daughter did a cross stitch reindeer years ago that will go with this - we have always wanted to make a quilt of it - and these will go around it perfectly.
