Autumn Courntry Rule 14 Release

Since this is the top, what better thing to add than the sky and the sun. Mountains in the background and of course, pine trees.

For the rule and technique, the sun is my pinwheel and it is needle turn appliqued behind the sky. I cut the circle and appliqued it by hand. From each seam of the pinwheel, I hand embroidered a sun ray. The mountains were fun to do. I have a pattern with one mountain with the snowcap, but it looked pretty lonely, so I added a couple more. For a block this size, it was a challenge to fill it in, and I may still add some more clouds.

That is very, very cool! It's going to top off your quilt just fine.

Very nice! How did you do the pine trees?

The pine trees are from a print I found. Just appliqued them to the mountain fabric.

This looks great! Here in Oregon we have mountains called The Three Sisters, and this looks how they look. You put a lot of work into your block. I love the trees, too.
