Reindeer Prance by Deborah Edwards for Northcott


July and August are busy months for me at Seams Sew Simple. With the arrival of all the Christmas Fabric, cutting, folding and pricing fat quarters, as well as updating all my social media and online shop. Making up the samples for the up coming shows and getting ready for winter sewing. I thought I'd share some of this seasons collections which are available at

Reindeer Prance from Northcott by Deborah Edwards.  I love the prancing reindeer in this soft blue colour way. Snowflakes and a hint of metallic adds the right amount of sparkle.


 With a hint of metallic, Reindeer Prance brings to life the magical sparkle of the holiday season. The dark navy background of the panel and the glistening stars reminds of a clear night sky.  Again the snowflake prancing reindeer with his curly antlers makes this a special fabric perfect for Christmas.
Borders and blocks can be added to the panel for either wall hanging size or larger if you prefer to use it on the couch as a decorative throw, or as they do in my house curl up with it in front of a glowing fire with a good christmas movie on the telly.  ooooh feeling warm already!

White Christmas.  This lovely silvery colour way matches in beautifully with the navy of the panel and the soft blue's of the first fabric. This can be used as the first border on the panel to create the perfect frame. Remember to sew the short sides, top and bottom first, that way you only use one strip instead of two. After that you will have to use corner stones for the next border if like me you don't like joins on the long sides.

In contrast this silvery blue adds the finishing touches.
Can be used as borders or in blocks to enhance the reindeer panel.

Below is a finished Quilt which you can see on the Northcott website giving a lovely idea of what you can make these beautiful fabrics into this Christmas.
