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!

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.
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.
