We’re moving right along on the Christmas Memories Quilt SAL and have already pieced the Holly Blocks and the Star Blocks. This week we’re cutting and stitching the two Reindeer Blocks.
Cut the pieces: From the brown fabric cut six (6) A squares, four (4) B triangles, four (4) T rectangles, two (2) U pieces, two (2) D pieces and four (4) Zrectangles.
Cut two (2) X pieces from the deep red fabric.
From the off-white fabric cut four (4) P pieces, two(2) U squares, two (2) B triangles, two (2) W rectangles and six (6) V strips.
Assemble the Blocks: Using 1/4 inch seam allowances throughout, stitch together the two head units (Fig. 6) and two body units (Fig. 7). Press the seam allowances towards the darker fabrics.
Stitch the head units and body units together to make a block.
Next week we’ll assemble the two tree blocks that flank each side of the larger central block.
