My Blue Mountains

I am always happy to hop along and the Winter Blues Hop hosted by Carla Henton of Creatin’ in the Sticks is no exception.

I received the fabrics from Love Crafts* and signed up for the blog hop around the same time. You can read about the Windham fat quarters here. They really were the perfect inspiration for this blog hop.

Jonathan and John at Hawk Mountain, 4/2004

The Blue Mountains are part of the Appalacian Trail and run diagonally through Pennsylvania. There is a wonderful spot, Hawk Mountain, that I have visited many times. Hawk Mountain is in Now, they are much more rolling hills than peaks, but they were my Blue Mountains, and I love them.

April 2004

Half Rectangles (HRTs) were calling my name and I started to play with this simple idea of mountains. I had seen a few other mountainy quilts, but went with an idea of only using HRTs but I needed to then add some different angles and used what appear to be isosceles triangles (although I didn’t measure them to see if that’s what they are) The collection of Windham blues is just fabulous for this project; they have such a wintry feel to them.

I designed it in Electric Quilt 8.* Now, as I made it, I got myself in a bit of trouble. Fat Quarters are only so big and I tried using my TriRecs ruler – misremembering the block size. In the end, I made templates from EQ8 and found that worked much better. I did paper piecing with freezer paper* – perfect!

The only problem is that there were two instances of the HRTs and two of a smaller isocoles triangle used to make some different points. I worked through it and love this little quilt. You can see them right next to each other. So, while it was easy to draw in EQ, it was a little harder to execute in real life!

I quilted straight lines in the mountains for emphasis. I didn’t think the sky needed anything. Two different threads were used to quilt: 50 wt Mettler #9812 (variegated evening blue) and 40 wt Sulky, #1222 (baby blue) along with 60 wt. Superior Bottom line #635 (medium blue). I love when the threads just work and these did a fabulous job.

I often use these triangles and an extra piece in the middle for hanging a quilt.he binding was done by machine. This really makes finishing simple! [Note some asked: The extra piece I use when the quilt is bigger than 12″. You can use one nail or two nails to hang.]

I hope you enjoyed my excursion to the My Blue Mountains. The templates are available in my store (above) for free. They give you a placement guide; do ask me if you have trouble with it.

    I really love your Blue Mountains!! I grew up surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains and I definitely miss them. I would love to have your pattern so I could have my mountains no matter where home is!!

    • January 20, 2020 / 10:14 am

      Thank you! They were fun to make and I will add your name to a list. Hopefully today or tomorrow I’ll get it done!

  2. January 20, 2020 / 1:28 am

    Hi Kathleen. Your Blue Mountains is beautiful! I live in the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia and couldn’t imagine living any where else (although I have lived in almost every other province in Canada). I’d love to have your pattern templates and I’m sure most of the readers would as well. Thank you for a very enjoyable post Carol

    • January 20, 2020 / 10:17 am

      I am so glad you enjoyed it and I’ll add your name to the list. I spent some time in the midwest where there were no mountains; definitely prefer seeing them! I long to see BC…maybe one day I can convince hubby.

      • January 20, 2020 / 12:23 pm

        Hi Kathleen. I think you would enjoy BC. Right now my mountain view is gone. We live on a golf course and there is a river nearby. The snow and fog are socked in but it’s still pretty Carol

    Love those soft blues and then the darker one has lovely contrast. Super lines, and the hanging tab in the centre is a great idea. If the templates can be sent by email, yes please, as I live way down in NZ. Our Central Plateau about 2 hours north of us, ski fields in winter, tramping in summer, and we lived near a lake that had a huge mountain on the other side of the water. Perfect to hold all those memories.

      The extra tab is great for things that are a little bigger than 12 inches and would sag in the middle. Of course, then two nails are required, but one will work most of the time.
      I have no idea how long it takes to get there, but I am pleased to do it, hopefully in the mail before the end of the week.

    This quilt almost shows the nature around here where I live at the west coast of Norway. Such beautiful blues. I love that quilt.

    Hi Kathleen, I grew up in Wilmington DE and visiting and hiking up Hawk Mountain was a regular event for our family. I even got a Hawk Mountain patch to sew on my jacket after I did the whole hike by myself.I have wonderful memories watching the migrating hawks! I’d love your set of templates so I can make this little quilt for my brother and sister.

      I don’t know that I ever knew that! I love that we both share that wonderful place (I think I received a girl scout badge there). I always loved going there, more as an adult than as a child – maybe one too many field trips. Happy to add your name to the list.

      January 20, 2020 / 10:49 am

      Yeah, it was a little tricky, only because those reversals don’t come so easy to me! It was why I didn’t get the templates together for the post, but I will!

  11. January 20, 2020 / 8:34 am

    Hi Kathleen! Oh, I can definitely see My Blue Mountains from the picture you shared. And I absolutely agree that these fabrics were the perfect choice. I’ve been wanting to make something with HRTs but just haven’t found the impetus to push me. Thanks for the shove – I’ll have to ponder this for a bit but it is really lovely! ~smile~ Roseanne

      HRTs are harder for me than I would like, there’s always a little confusion about the fact that pieces are really different (direction of the angle) but I did get it figured out. I need a good Rectangle ruler….or just always use my templates from EQ….pretty easy but I am a stubborn learner.

      I need to get better at identifying birds but any eagle siting is a win in my book! In Alaska, they were like crows. I do see them more frequently in New England than I ever have, and that is a lovely thing.

  15. January 20, 2020 / 9:30 am

    Great way to use the blue fabrics! I love the mini with those mountain peaks. Tell me a bit about the hanging tab in the backing – I use the two corner triangles, but haven’t done the middle tab. Does it support the quilt better, I assume?

    • kathleenquilts
      Author
      January 20, 2020 / 11:59 am

      I added a note to the blog, but I use that hanging tab (which should be sewn down) when the quilt is bigger than 12”. You can still use one nail or make a tiny opening in the tab. Or use 2 nails. It just helps the bigger ones not sag. This one is 20” so I wouldn’t be happy with just the triangles.

    I love your blue mountains. I’m a Rockies woman myself, and the shades of blue looking out across a valley in northern Arizona is very like your quilt. I’ve not see a quilt hanger done that way, with the middle piece, and I like it!

    • kathleenquilts

      January 20, 2020 / 11:49 am

      The mountains are just gorgeous and though nothing like the Rockies, they were a familiar site in PA! The tab does help if the quilt is larger than 12″.

    Your blue mountains are so stunning in this quilt and I love that idea of the tab. I’ve done the corner thing, but I’ll have to try this. Such a gorgeous view in your photo! Thank you for sharing the details on making your mountains!

      January 20, 2020 / 11:48 am

      It is truly a beautiful spot. It was fun how it all came together. I added a note in the blog but I use the tab when it is a bit bigger than 12” so the quilt doesn’t sag. You can still use one nail or hook or two (or make a little slit in the tab). It works.

  18. January 20, 2020 / 10:20 am

    Kathleen these mountains are beautiful. I love the blues and the quilting. Thanks for sharing the pieces you use on the back to hanging. I have one I need to hang, as soon as I get it to lay flat!!

    • kathleenquilts
      Author
      January 20, 2020 / 11:41 am

      You are welcome! The triangles are so easy but I add the center piece if it is bigger than 12” to help it lay flat (it should be tacked down which I don’t think it is in the picture). Since I don’t know where this will live, I added these so it is easy. Good luck on your finish.

    I do triangles in the corners of quilts to hang but never thought to add a center piece to help with some of the weight–great idea!

      Oh, I can’t wait to see your version! Yes, the tab is a help and I really don’t like the longer tubes. It should be tacked down, which it wasn’t in the picture!

You can do so much with triangles can’t you? I love how you quilted this, and one day I hope to walk parts of the Appalachian Trail.

    • January 22, 2020 / 12:26 pm

      You would have. And believe it is easier to draw one block and rotate and then refine (adding other blocks) as your vision develops. I am not an artist so EQ8 gets me there!

    Back in the late 60’s, very ealy 70’s I visited a Girl Scout Friend we had had overnight at our house in Wilmington, Delaware. She invited me to her home as a thank you. A beautiful home in the country. She and her brother climbed Hawk Mtn frequently therefore one of the the things I did while there was to climb Hawk Mtn. Not so much a mountain but an extremely huge vertical rock. As a city girl I was used to walking everywhere on sea level, certainly not vertically. But as much as much as I complain I had a great time, found out I could rock climb to the top and watch all types of large winged hawks. I’m going to try to make this block as a tribute to a very nice person I wish I kept in touch with and a challenge I accomplished in climbing that mountain.

    • January 22, 2020 / 12:27 pm

      I remember feeling exactly that way about the mountain. I now think I should do a lot more of it as the payoff of the view is well worth it. Templates should be ready shortly. I am having a little trouble with the one program I use to edit the EQ8 blocks, but I will get there.

    Such a “cool” design! I was just in the Great Smokey Mtns. this past weekend. It mostly looks like a brown carpet all crumpled up. 🙂 But in the spring and summer it is beautiful with all the fifferent shades of green! I would love your templates for these mountains! Thank you!

    Hi Kathleen, love your mountains. I have a friend whose son is a fan of the Colorado Rockies baseball team and we are making a quilt for him. Could you please add me to your list for the template. I think these mountains are exactly what we’re looking for the quilt. Thank you so much.

      Happy to do so, I am thinking I will have them by the end of the week, but one of my editing programs is making me unhappy!!!

    I live not far from Hawk Rock, so I enjoyed your interpretation. I’d love your templates. Also thank you for the thread specifics I’m a fan of mettle variegateds.

    Just beautiful! Aren’t those hanging triangles just the best? The center strip is necessary often!

    • January 25, 2020 / 9:31 pm

      They sure are! Yes, when they get a little too big the center tab is just the fix!

    I love this! the whole thought process and the way you designed it – andof course – any mountains are good in my book – I love the great outdoors~!

      Thanks, Alycia! I am glad you enjoyed it and that it transported you to the outdoors

    Your soft blue palette is very pleasing and your points are all perfect! The quilting complements the design well.
