I found some cute reindeer/tree fabric. It's a one way design. I'm using a snowball pattern --------4 snowballs long.

NOW

What do you guys do about one way designs? On one, I've got two blocks facing to the right and two to the left.

On the second, I faced all the blocks one way. (which will go to my DD for her buffet)

I've got fabric for two more------I'm thinking about setting blocks facing west, north, south, east (for lack of better directions). I'm thinking if it's on a table, you'll see one block facing you no matter where you are.

Thank heavens the reindeer aren't really big so its not going to be a big issue. The largest design is an non-directional snowflake.

It's a JoAnn's fabric. I'll see if I can find a link. My camera is not taking good pics right now.

LOL,had not even thought of that. 3rd one will be WNSE and I'll do the 4th like you suggested. Now I have to find more corner colors and border colors. Just bought enough the other day to do two.

Camera is not working well. I love reindeer. This fabric is black background. The biggest object are the light gold/dark gold snowflakes, several different. Next in size are the trees, three colors of olive green, again several different trees. Nest would be the red/blood red reindeer, several poses. Also has some royal blue circles with black dots, several sizes. And in the very background dark gold dots. Between the snowflakes and reindeer I had to have it. HAD TO! Not cheap either. Original price was 10.99 or whatever, on sale. I tried to look it up on the JoAnn's web site and can't find it. And stupid me threw away the sales bill AND the selvedges with the design name.
