Reindeer Xing Quilt in Christmas Eve Fabric

On Christmas Eve, we search the skies for reindeer in flight… Here’s a herd of the sweetest reindeer blocks mixed into a wintry forest. This quilt is called “Reindeer Xing” and is another new pattern made up in the Christmas Eve fabric arriving to shops in May.

Reindeer Block Construction

The blocks of “Reindeer Xing” are pieced using a combination of beginner techniques – half square triangles for the tree blocks + easy corner triangles for the deer. I would classify the skill level required for this pattern as “intermediate” – not because of difficulty, but more because there are a lot of pieces to keep track of (and a few of them are small).

Christmas Eve Fabric

One of my favorite things about the “Reindeer Xing” quilt is the way it highlights the greys of the Christmas Eve collection. A couple Moda Bella Solids are used for the deer (specific SKU info listed below). Christmas Eve fabric arrives May 2023 – so now is the time to put in requests to the shops. For your convenience, below is a list of what you’ll need to make “Reindeer Xing” in Christmas Eve:

    This is absolutely adorable! Is it wrong that I want to drop every single thing I’m working on and make this?! LOL!

    This is so cute! I can’t wait for your Christmas line to come out. My biggest dilemma – do I make one nose red?

      That sounds like a cute idea! I would have loved to do that – but apparently a red nose on a reindeer is trademarked so I couldn’t sell it that way.
