This pattern came from Bonnie, a variation on Delectable Mountains. I loved the ease with which these came together. I presented the pattern to my mini group and nine of us made quilts based on the Mountain Majesties pattern. We worked together; using the same pale Fairy Frost background and our choice of batiks in a pre-determined color pallet, we all pieced enough blocks for this 8x8 setting. Then we got together for a Sew-day. We each laid out our blocks and had a swap. When we were done each of us ended up with enough blocks to make the 8x8 layout, but with alot of variety among the fabrics.
This close-up shows the colors better than the full-length image. This project was last year and most of the ladies have finished their tops. Some have even finished their quilt (!). I was hoping for a group photo, but already the completed quilts have scattered; one moved to Kauai, another was given to a Mom in Utah, another to a son leaving for college. And so it goes... Maybe I'll plan a reunion!
