A few years back my friend Sariah made the cutest mountain quilt. I can’t remember what she called it, but HERE is the pattern. I have wanted to make a scrappy version of it every since. Now that the entire world is quarantined, and many of the quilt shops are closed, I got my chance!
Another lady in my quilt guild had done the pattern in the form of lanterns and it hung in our Peach Days community celebration last year. I loved how she arranged her blocks, and I was thinking of finishing this one similarly. Then I looked at it and realized it looks like the Corona Virus! Well, after a few weeks of homeschooling, deep cleaning my fridge, reading every book in my house, and worrying about all of my friends and family getting sick I decided a big nope on that pattern for this time frame.
I played around with it until I had a bit of a color gradient, and decided on a sunrise pattern. This is a side view, and I’m working on a time lapse of the process to make it. I still have to do the outer borders, which will also be scrappy. I can not wait to share it when it is done.
