The minute I saw the Delectable Mountains block I knew that I had to make a quilt. I often called myself a quilting resister, but block by block and quilting magazine by quilting magazine I’m catching the bug.
My friend Vered had a baby boy a few months ago and I decided that I needed to make her a baby quilt. She loves modern design and I thought the block would suit her aesthetic and baby colors perfectly. Shades of grey, and add white.. Everything about this quilt was right up my alley!
The quilt took much longer than expected.. I asked Vered about the quilt last spring, we then packed up and moved across the country, lived with my sister and law and her family for a few weeks and moved into our place mid August… I can’t tell you how many times that I stopped and started this quilt.
The block is very simple and the quilt can be taken in many directions. Type in “Delectable Mountains” on Pinterest and you’ll see a gazillion beautiful variations. I found this block over at the Fat Quarter Shop, click here for the link to the pattern. The best part is Kimberly shot a YouTube tutorial for the block. Click this link for the YouTube tutorial. With the amount of times that I had to re-start this quilt, the video got me back into the swing of things each time.
Cute model, right? I had my 3 yr old try out his Vanna White skills and showcase the quilt. He was more goofy than helpful, but I got the images that I needed.
That’s it for today. I have a fun pouch in the works and will be sharing it very soon.
