Round Robin 5 Row 1 with Patchwork Posse

Share the love!

Today is the first row for the Round Robin- Winter Wonderland Theme

I am totally lucky to start off this years Round Robin!! This year the theme is Winter Wonderland– and so I am sharing the Delectable Mountain Quilt Pattern.

This block is really super easy when you sew and cut things correctly and follow the instructions. 

Yes, you will find a little mistake in the row that I made…..why because isn't it tradition to have one mistake in your quilt– putting it in there on purpose?  Of course! So, I thought that I wouldn't want to go against tradition. So…you will find that one block is not in fact a mountain, but a couple of cliffs.

Background:  Cut 4– 8 1/2" X 8 1/2" 

Mountain: Cut 4– 8 1 /2" X 8 1/2" {for a mix of mountains, I cut 2 squares out of 4 different fabrics

Thanks for Betty for reminding me this: The cool thing is.. you can get 4 mountains out of 1 fat quarter-mountains and 1 fat quarter-background fabric.

1) Draw a line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the lighter fabric

2) Lay one light square on dark square

3)  Sew on each side of the drawn line 1/4" from the line

4)  Cut down drawn line.  Iron 

5)   Lay the half square triangles right sides together- lights and darks are opposite each other

6)  Cut them into 4– 2" strips- make sure you are cutting the correct direction!

7)  Re-arrange the order of the 4 strips so they will make a delectable mountain

Each section will measure 6 1/2" X 8" tall.  Sew the two sections of 4 strips each together-

Repeat the steps with each background and mountain fabric for 4 mountains.

Sew each delectable mountain block into a row 4 blocks wide

This tutorial is similar to the one I did for Quilting Gallery — Delectable Mountains 12 1/2" X 12 1/2" Block Size

    I’ve started my row. When I cut it, I’m so lame I couldn’t figure out how to place them! LOL! I thought I’d messed up. So today I’ll finish up my row. Am deciding whether or not to put in “mistake” as I make so many I’m in no danger of offending the universe! This is my first row quilt. I’m excited….just worried about fabric choices, as I usually do when grabbing from the stash.

  8. whosies

    don’t worry about the fabric choices…for some reason going scrappy is scary, but in the end they always turn out fantastic. Join the lame team sister! I am president- you have just become a charter member. Oh my gosh, i love that idea….writing it down to use later.
    I’m glad you are joining us and please, please make sure you post your blocks, row in the gallery– I want to see it, mistake or not!

  9. Susan

    I like your cliffs. =) This is such an easy way to do these, isn’t it? Thanks for the tutorial.

  10. Lois in TN

    OK, so something interesting happened! As I was sewing my mountains together, I noticed that somehow I have extras. I read the directions wrong and have 4 more mountains extra. Hmmmm….. May have to think about doing 2 quilts since I messed up!!! It could have been a lot worse! LOL!

    I just found your Round Robin and went right to my stash and got out fabric….the blocks are almost ALL done!! THis is going to be fun! I am totally crazy for BOM, sew alongs and now Round Robin….. maybe my stash will get down to a more managable size…probably not…but oh well! 🙂 Thanks!

  12. whosies

    leesa- so glad you found us and congrats on picking it up and doing it! Can’t wait to see what you come up with using your stash.

  13. whosies

    lois– you can save them for later…they might work on the back or make your other rows longer to match. we’ll see with the new rows. thanks for sewing along!

  14. craftytammie

    i love the colors you’ve chosen! i’m going to pull fabrics so i can get started!

  15. Betty C

    I believe you only need 4 bg’s and 4 squares of mountain fabric in the 8.5 x8.5
    size. I started with 4 of each and got the 4 blocks 4 required.
    The cool thing is.. you can get 4 mountains out of 1 fat quarter and 1 fq of bg fabric.

  16. whosies

    thanks Betty for sharing this…sometimes my math doesn’t work like it should. And you are the best for coming up with a fat quarter of each! i’ll be adding that.

  17. Leesa in Oregon

    Lois….. I somehow did the same thing….. but they were such a fun block to make I didn’t mind! I’m thinking of trying to make them into a bag somehow…..should be fun! Can’t wait for the next row! 🙂

  18. Jeannie S

    I see you changed the instructions to 4 squares each, I was confused, too, as I had printed the original ones and ended up with enough for two rows – well,would have if I hadn’t messed up my first two attempts. 😉 I made a mountain for spring, summer, fall and winter.

  19. whosies

    jeannie- sometimes the math runs from my head without thinking. i did change it because you take one of the blocks and then cut it in half– and then you end up with the two blocks. don’t need to cut 2 for each. thanks for the help everyone to remind me of this. hope it didn’t confuse too many more of you. 🙂

  20. Deb Myers

    i’m confused. is this (truly) a ROUND ROBIN or is it a ROW QUILT?? looks like a row quilt to me. am i missing something yet to come???

  21. whosies

    yes nancy- it’s a row quilt. Are you sewing along?

  22. Lois in TN

    Oh, what a good idea,Jeanie S, to do all 4 seasons. Well, too late for that one, but I can’t wait to see how yours turns out. I’m looking forward to seeing the next row.

  23. elsa

    I’ve got some fun fabric that’s just waiting for something wonderful like this! I’m in!!!

  24. Janet
