    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.

    I run away from one-way designs. I get goofed up enough as it is :D
    Kimmie, that quilt is adorable!! That's something I COULD do. But anything else, forget it!
    One night I stayed up until 4am redoing a one way design on a quilt for my sister. One of the fabrics had it and it drove me nuts. Had to take out about 20 blocks! hahaha

    We do a lot of table runners and have run into the same situation. We like the N E S W arrangement and people we sell to seem to like them as well.

    Nope, I'll get my hubby's camera tonight. Forgot he even had one.

    Your fabric is really cute, though. And the blanket, too.

    But this fabric was just too cute to pass up.
