Here it is, April and spring are on their way!!I did really simple quilting after I fused the applique, I layered it up and stitch straight through everything. Enjoy

Wowee, Very cool, Susan! Is that Mt. Hood? Can you see it on a sunny day? I love how you fussy cut the blue in the batik, it looks like the ice cap is melting a bit for spring!

Hi Froggie, I'm pretty lucky, I live in Oregon and work in Washington, so as I drive home each night I get to see Mt Hood in the distance, covered in snow and looking majestic. Of course the best view is as I'm crossing the bridge in peak hour traffic, so it can be a little hairy getting that glimpse down the  gorge all the way to Mt Hood, but that doesn't stop me! The block is all fusible applique and goes together really quickly. Have fun, get quilting.
Mount Hood is one of the reasons why I love living in the NW. It's a beautiful sight, no matter where you are viewing the mountain from. :)

Hi all - here is my warmer more country version. I was a snap to put together and I had fun practicing quilting on this block! Here are the fabrics I used:

For the sky: 3665 - Hollyhocks Cloud from Abigails' Garden

For the grass, cloud and mountain: 2582 - Pebbles Celery, 2563 - Stripe Slate, and 2592 - Dreamscape Fall Foliage from Batik Paradise

For the river, snow, and rain: 2666 - Mirage Indigo, 2641 - Cirlicue Antique, and 2635 - Squiggle Stripe Denim from Country Quilter's Candy

For rain and binding: 3112 - Starlit Iceberg Blue and 3109 - Lattice Lt Indigo from Midnight Garden

Hi Bernadine, yes we suggest using our Lite Steam-A-Seam sheets to fuse together the pieces. It works really well! Just make sure to press and hold for a few seconds, and not move around the iron too much. :)

 

Have a question! I'm not real good at machine applique. Can this block be done

using hand/needle turned applique? I'm not sure how to do it this way. Tried my

letters using machine applique & didn't have the patience at this time.

Hey there Elana, yes you can certainly do hand applique if you want to with this block. In fact, I've designed it so really the applique is optional, you only really need the Steam-A-Seam sheets to fuse the pieces together. :)

Oh Susan, Mt. Hood down the gorge! What a site! You are lucky. We used to like seeing Mt. Rainier and the Cascade mountains to the east and the Olympic mountains to the west. One rolling, one jagged.

Teri, I love your version, too. The hollyhock sky is great!

Elana, I bet your hand applique'd mountain will be wonderful. I can't wait to see it. I still have to download it.

I love steam-a-seam, and CT has the best price around. Every time I place an order, I try to remember to get some.

Your block is very pretty. I really like how you did the rain. Wish I had thought of that. I am hand stitching the binding down and will post a picture of my April block this evening or tomorrow.

Oooo!  I really like your version mich/tn.  Very pretty
