Step 1: Use the STOP method to add the Dark Brown (B) rectangles on the ends of the White (B) rectangles then to add the White (A) squares. Sew the White (F) between these units.



Step 2: Use the STOP method to add the Dark Brown (A) squares on the corners of the Light Brown (J) rectangle.







Step 3: To make the EYES, sew the Light Brown (*) squares to the Black (*) squares. To make the NOSE, sew the Light Brown (*) squares on the ends of the Black (**) rectangle. To make the CHIN, use the STOP method to add the White (*) squares on the ends of the Light Brown (***) rectangle. Sew the Light Brown (L) to the NOSE and the NOSE to the CHIN. Use the STOP method to add the Light Brown (A) squares on the ends of the White (B) rectangles. Sew the EYES to these. Arrange them as shown and sew them together.






Step 4: Use the STOP method to add the Light Brown (B) rectangles on the ends of the Pink (B) rectangles, then to add White (B) rectangles.






Step 5: Use the STOP method to add the Dark Brown (B) rectangles on the ends of the White (B) rectangles, then to add the White (B) rectangles. Also use the STOP method to add the Dark Brown (A) squares on the ends of the White (B) rectangles. Also use the STOP method to add the Dark Brown (A) squares on the White (A) squares. Along with 2 more Dark Brown (A) squares, sew the units together, as shown on the right. Also use the STOP method to add the White (A) squares on the ends of the Dark Brown (D) rectangles. Take the units made and sew them together.





Step 6: Sew the Light Brown (C) rectangles onto the bottom of the White (F) rectangles. Use the STOP method to add the Dark Brown (G) squares on the units. Sew these units onto the bottom of the units made in the previous step. Sew the White (E) rectangles onto the sides.






Step 7: Along with the White (H) rectangle and (K) squares, arrange and sew the units together to complete the block. Block should measure 12.5” square.










Here is my Santa's Reindeer block.
