Idaho Mountain Block in Country Living Magazine

Country Living Quilt

Country Living magazine is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and they put together a collaborative quilt with 50 blocks—one made by a quilter in each state. When they asked me to make a block representing Idaho, I happily obliged. Find it on the second row, all the way to the right.

Nothing says “Idaho” quite like a mountain. I was inspired by the work of Rick Murphy and translated his art into a mountain quilt block. To me, it represents Castle Peak in the White Cloud Mountains, one of my Dad’s favorite hunting spots. Who knew that half-square triangles make great mountain peaks? I used 3 Kona Cotton fabrics I got from Sewfinity: Breeze (light), Peacock (medium), and Indigo (dark).
