This blue Misty Mountains quilt is the first version I made when testing out the pattern! I love the blue gradient because, more than any other version, it really looks like a misty mountain range fading into the background.
This blue Misty Mountains quilt is the throw size in Kona solids. Because it relies on big pieces, even a throw size Misty Mountains quilt can be made fairly quickly!

I asked my mom if she wanted to go cross country skiing, and oh by the way, maybe hold up a quilt while we were out there! She’s such a good sport about my very weird requests.
All fabrics used on this quilt front were Kona solids from Robert Kaufman:
Color 1: Windsor
Color 2: Cadet
Color 3: Denim
Color 4: Dresden Blue
Color 5: Bluebell
Color 6: Cloud
Backing: Flannel Target Sheet (read all about using sheets as backings!)
I love this flannel backing for this quilt! The pinecones and pine needles worked really well with the mountain theme (outdoors!) and the creamy white background complemented the blue fabrics on the front without taking center stage. Plus, I can’t help but sneak a print fabric in there somewhere ;).
To quilt this blue Misty Mountains quilt, I first started with machine quilting. I echoed the mountain outlines with my quilting. I then filled in-between the machine quilting with some hand quilting in various blue shades. I love the subtle interest the hand quilting brings. This is a great strategy if you’re looking to incorporate a bit of hand quilting but the thought of hand-quilting an entire quilt is too daunting.
This quilt now lives on our wall in our house! Have you made a misty mountains quilt? You can see all the amazing versions out on instagram here.
