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.

Instructions:

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

Photo Gallery~So we can all keep track of what we have sewn, there is a Flickr Photo Gallery set up for the Round Robin.  This is a great place to post photos of your progress– from fabric choice to final finish.  We want to see it all!  {this truly is the only way we can share since we don't live by each other- think of it as our spot for show and tell}  I check it often and comment, so please share!
