How About A Mountain Getaway?

Hello Everyone,

I have taken you to Paradise Island, now how about a Mountain Getaway?

Since I just returned from Montana where there are many mountains, I can assure you that a Mountain Getaway is a fabulous time.  But this one is great for the quilter in you.

I designed a quilt using Australian Fabrics for Quilt Magazine, once again I did not name it... I am bad at that... but I love the name they gave the quilt!!



The fabrics were fussy cut to come up with this design.  The quilting I did was curls to add texture.


A fun and quick quilt to piece with almost a holiday feel.


Mountain Getaway is a terrific quilt for a bed or a gift for that special someone. 


I used Bush Tucker Black for the backing fabric and bound it in red.


Here it is in the current issue and there is me!



You can find the current issue in my shop along with quilt kits to make this fabulous quilt.  Just click here.


If you have never used the Australian fabrics they are just fabulous to work with and have a glorious silky feel.


I am in love with Quilt Magazine's photographers.  They make the quilts just look spectacular!!  Thank you again Quilt for working with me.

***I still have not yet heard from the third winner of the Judy Niemeyer Pattern Giveaway, Mommy Hearts Family.  If I do not hear from her by Saturday, I will draw a new winner.***

Until Next Time....

Wow - I have to say the border and the backing are really my favorites! I don't think I would have thought to use black for the backing but it was a really great choice. Congratulations on having so many quilts in the magazine - what an accomplishment!
