Christmas reindeer

Happy Saturday! It's Day 6 of our "simple, stylish" holiday quilts and we wanted to share our favorite reindeer (quilt).  He could be Dasher, Dancer, Prancer or Vixen. The image reminds us of the cover of the classic children's book, The Night Before Christmas,  which depicts Santa's reindeer silhouetted by the moon.

Christmas Reindeer, 23-1/2 x 33" by June Jaeger at Log Cabin Quiltworks (Oregon)

This reindeer is silhouetted by a shiny green Christmas ornament; the graceful red ribbon that adorns the deer is echoed by the red ribbon on the ornament. 

June Jaeger is a renowned designer, entrepreneur and teacher. We first featured her work in our series on Quilts of the Wild West.   Many of her patterns have animal silhouettes, which we love; the silhouettes portray the animals in their simplest forms.  At Log Cabin Quiltworks you can find June's artistic patterns for winter, wildlife and birds, including Gambel's quail. Last but not least, if you are a cat lover you will enjoy her cat quilts such as Here a kitty There a kitty.
