Reindeer Leaping Photoshop design sketch
My daughter liked the "Crystal Sunset" quilt, which is going to a craft show, so I decided to design a Christmas quilt for her that was similar. The sky and snow on this quilt will both be hand-dyed wholecloth and the "rainbow" effect border can use the strip set leftover from Crystal Sunset. I hope I can find commercial fabric with realistic printed fir or pine trees in the snow. I think the reindeer can be cut from one piece of shaded brown fabric with some painted highlights and maybe thread-painted details, but if I can find some beige velvet I might try dying that in an ombre effect.
So it will be fast and done on time. Right?
