Delectable Mountains (Unfinished Business #2)

This is a quilt I started about 15 years ago. I got the pattern out of an early 90s Better Homes and Gardens Quilt book. The original pattern was done in blue and white only, but I knew that would drive me crazy - I crave variety. I designed it in blues, greens, pinks, yellows and browns. With the yellow on the top and bottom to symbolize the sun rise and set - a full day in the mountains!

This was in the days of B.C. - before children - when I could spend hours hand piecing - I used to love that. I think at this point I am saving this top to finish for a couch quilt - when the kids are a little older.

Thanks bunny! How I used to love hand piecing in those BC days. I can't even imagine having that kind of time now!
