Some of you may remember my mountain quilt, based on one of my pictures of our home mountain, Sierra Blanca (in southern New Mexico). I'd started it in the wonderful Gloria Loughman class and had it mostly finished since the spring, but wasn't sure if it needed something else. I hemmed and hawed, but without much progress. At one point I thought I should thread paint some trees in the foreground. I tried that but they looked terrible (let me tell you, ripping those out was not fun). In any case, after several months of looking at it on my design wall, I decided I love it just the way it is. My eye is instantly drawn to the white mountain peak and it makes me crave home! I can't wait till Thanksgiving when Mike and I will travel there.
