Go Teal it on the Mountain #7

It’s Delectable!

And in case you think I’m being a bit fancy-schmantzy, this is an interpretation of the classic Delectable Mountain quilt block, and a beauty. It comes to me from Esther in the Netherlands, and I just love her fabric choices, especially that perfect background with the tiny stylised floating clouds.

We’re up to 10 blocks now. If you’ve promised a block but haven’t yet got round to it, I do encourage you to maybe make a start… Christmas will be on us all too soon, and there are always other, important things to be done and made in the lead-up. I have a tight deadline for this quilt and I don’t want to rush it and spoil it after everyone’s hard work. If you think you’re no longer able to make a block, do let me know now, so I can make more myself. And if you can’t remember if you’ve offered to make one, just email me and I’ll confirm the list.

What an amazing range of Mountains we’re making, between us!

    Esther’s mountains are….well, delectable. She’s done a great interpretation, and yes, it’s going to be a fabulous quilt. I haven’t forgotten, mine are on the cutting table, and I’m juggling back and forth between them and Moira’s F2F blocks. At least yours don’t have to travel far, and at a pinch, it’s not expensive to send express from here.

      Moira’s first, of course! I know what you mean about the juggling: this, plus Moira’s plus the CoH quilt, plus the hatbox quilt, plus… well, you know what it’s like.
      Esther’s fabrics are always fabulous!

  2. Beautiful! I love the colors and the clouds.

    I love Esthers block, mine is started and i have just finished Moira’s three. I have a bit more to do on my mountain but it is getting there.

      Wow! You’re certainly making up for lost time. I’m so glad you’re feeling better enough to power through all that stitching 🙂 Do let me know when Moira’s blocks are in the mail and I’ll tick you off the list.

    This is a wonderful interpretation of the Delectable Mountain, and yes, the clouds are a perfect touch to be sure.

    It’s amazing how you can combine shapes in colors to make it look just like that, a mountain. First thing that comes to mind when you look. Very lovely!

    Love those clouds as well!

  8. You are so so clever Kate! “Go teal it on the mountain” is such a great name! I’m sorry I missed the post on the round up. These mountains are going to be fantastic!!❤️❤️

      They are going to be such a great collection of ideas and originality. I think this will be a great final quilt to hand over to Ovarian Cancer Australia before we starting making quilts for the Trudy Crowley Foundation, same cause, just closer to home!

    WOW! That is outstandingly beautiful!

  11. […] Kate is making a quilt called Teal it on the mountains to raise funds for ovarian cancer in Australia and a lot of people are making fabulous blocks for it. I volunteered to make one too, however my biggest quilting/patchwork effort  so far is my unicorn cushion. […]

    I´ll try to finish my second block and send it to you this week! Hope it´s alright that I uses the same fabric as Ester. The fabric with the clouds on. I just bought it, thinking it would make a perfect background 🙂
