Why not utilize all your sewing machine has to offer?  Here is a project that uses the decorative stitches that are built in.  The background is the traditional block called “Delectable Mountains” or “Majestic Mountains.”  It is a simple, but magical technique, easily attainable for the confident beginner. 

You will have the best success using good quality 100% cotton quilting fabric.  Home dec fabric, outdoor fabric, and polyester blends will not yield the best results.  This pattern is not suitable for directional fabric.  Choose 2 coordinating colors in tone-on-tone blenders or solids, or 1 very subtle print and 1 solid.  The 3rd color will be the “tree ornament” background for the stitching or trim you will add. 

A little pre-work is assigned.  After straightening and clean-cutting the edges of your 2 Delectable Mountains fabrics, remove the selvages.  Then cut 2 - 9” strips WOF fabric.  Sub-cut 4 rectangles 9” X 8 ½”. In total, you will have 8 rectangles of each of the 2 colors, all measuring 9” X 8 ½”.  Do not cut the ornament fabric, but you can apply the fusible to stabilize it, at home, if you want.  Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

Goals for this class:

  • Learn the “Delectable Mountains” block using the Eleanor Burns’ method
  • Utilize decorative stitches built into your machine, or apply trim
  • Learn to prepare pieces for appliqué using freezer paper
  • Learn to couch ribbon by machine

Supply List:

  • Color 1 – ½ yard WOF
  • Color 2 – ½ yard WOF
  • Color 3 – border - 1/3-yard WOF
  • Color 4 – ornaments – ¼ yard WOF or fat quarter – this should be solid or subtle to showcase stitching (if your machine does not feature decorative stitches, metallic trim, hand stitching, or felt pre-cuts can be used)
  • Glitzy thread – metallic, embroidery – anything shiny and in strong colors for embellishing
  • 1 ½ yd. 1/8” satin ribbon will be supplied, if you don’t already have it
  • 4” X 20” Fusible fleece or a stabilizer of your choice–will yield 5 ornaments (heavy embroidery stabilizer is not needed for this – fusible interfacing is enough)
  • 3” and 2 ½” circle templates (optional - I use a small jar lid or embroidery hoop)
  • Spray starch or equivalent (optional)
  • Freezer paper – optional – I will have some to share

Standard cutting & sewing supplies:

  • Rotary cutter, mat & rulers - some re supplied for sharing in classroom
  • Scissors, pins, stiletto or bamboo skewer, sewing thread
