Snowy Mountains Quilt

While on my recent visit to Jackson Hole I finished up the quilt I have been working on there. As it is such a gorgeous area with beautiful mountains, trees, and wildlife I wanted to make a wall hanging that represented that beauty. When I found this design I knew it was just what I wanted. An interesting project to create but not hard or terribly time consuming. At about 52 inches wide it is large enough to make a statement and will go up on the wall in the stairwell.  I enjoyed picking out the fabrics most of which I had to buy as I don't have much of a stash of quilting cottons. But I was delighted to use a remnant from our first grandchild's nursery decor which became the blue sky with stars in this wall hanging. By the time I finished it and found a hanging rod we didn't have time to get it up on the wall. Next visit, top priority.

It's beautiful...Jackson Hole is gorgeous, isn't it? How nice that you could incorporate a remnant from the past.

Wow, that is a nice piece of work you’ve created. I admire you for having the patience and talent for it; I don’t think I could ever manage to create such things. And the illustration is interesting as well, it’s nice to see how people are able to inspire from nature.
