Two more in the mailbox today 🙂
Right about now, the postie is rolling his eyes and thinking: “She’s off again, it’ll be envelopes from all over for a couple of months now”. He’d be right, but hey, it’s a nice change from bills and flyers.
This first one is from Jean in California. She tells me it’s inspired by trekking in the Sierra Nevada:
“I wanted this block to mimic how a mountain range looks in the fading light of day. How the foreground hills have deeper color and the farther, distant mountains are taller, more rugged and their color is more muted, almost blending away into the sky.”
I think she’s achieved her desired result pretty well, don’t you?
I know there are more on the way; once I have a few more I’ll be able to see whether there are ‘holes’ in the layout calling for darker or lighter blocks, or a focal point, etc. When I get some more, I’ll post a photo showing them all on the design wall so you can see them collectively. I also still have to make the teal ‘ribbon’ block, and I have a few mountain ideas I’d still like to try out.
But if there’s anyone out there who’s said they’d make a block or two, and who fancies giving a Delectable Mountain block a go, let me know, as I’d really like to have one in the quilt. If none of you makes it, I’ll do it myself. Or maybe we’ll have two 🙂
Back to the embroidery frame, I have an SAL coming up!
