We have the mountains done. Jana sat out this portion. It was not as easy as I expected. The block was not complicated. It just took concentration, and sometimes we are more about distraction. We like to talk and sing as we sew. Regardless the center is complete. It is close enough to the picture to make us happy.

Ever the colorful one Jana wants to use this fabric in the quilt. I initially said I think it's too dramatic and will distract from the mountains. However....
1. Follow the pattern and only use a 6" white border.
2. Use a white border-perhaps thinner than 6", maybe 2", and then add a wide border of the sunset fabric.
3. Forget the white and just go with a wide sunset.
Anyone want to add their opinion? We promise to consider all. The borders are Jana's territory and she will make the final decision. If needed I'll give technical support. As far as the applique' we are both newbies, so I guess we will figure that one out together.
Thanks for checking in.
Nicole sent this picture which was taken in the mountains of South Carolina. Looks like the sunset fabric is going to be a winner.
