American Made Mystery BOM Quilt: Block 4 The Mountains Are Calling- Winners

Prizes Block 4

August is over, and now it’s time to select the winners for Block 4- The Mountains Are Calling.  Many thanks to all of you who shared their blocks-nice work!!  The prizes for this months’s challenge are shown in the pic above.

We received one final entry since posting all of the Block 4 submissions this past Monday.  Carolyn Walsh shared this photo of her block with me.  Carolyn wasn’t quite happy with her first attempt at Block 4 that she originally shared, so after a good night’s rest, with seams ripped out and new triangles replaced, Carolyn sent me her re-do of Block 4, as shown below.  Great job!!  Carolyn learned a lot while constructing Block 4, and now considers starch, her best friend! 🙂

American Made Mystery BOM Quilt: Block 4 The Mountains Are Calling + Winners of Block 3

blog_4

The Mountains Are Calling….and we must answer!  Mystery Block 4 takes us to the high country — hiking boots optional for this foray into glacial terrain.  Our sample colors radiate cool:  a snow-topped peak reflected in the icy waters of a mountain lake.  Maybe yours will be the rosy pink mountains at dawn, as see over a cup of campfire coffee.  Or reflect the golden sunset.  Remember, we are starting at high altitude and the sky is the limit.  We can’t wait to see your ideas come to life in this block!

Download the PDF pattern here.  For a chance to win some great prizes, be sure to share photos of your finished block on Instagram with the tag #AMBmystery, or email your picture to: info at Clothworks dot com.

If you’re just tuning into the Our Land Mystery BOM here on the Works, please find all 3 current blocks in the links below:
