I love to play with a block and find new and different ways to use it. Majestic Mountains is a block I have played a lot with. I like it because it is pre-cut friendly, a layer cake and some background fabric and you’ve got endless possibilities. Here are just a few.
For today’s tutorial I thought I would share how you make the block and let you experiment to see what you come up with. Take two squares, I’m using 10″ aka layer cake size. Draw a diagonal line through it. Sorry it’s hard to see in the picture.
Place it right sides together with another 10″ square. Sew 1/4″ on either side of the line you drew.
Cut on diagonal line and press open.
Cut into equal segments, for the layer cake size I use 2 3/8″. The last strip is actually 2 1/2″ but it’s such a small difference I don’t worry about it.
Reverse the order of your strips and sew together. There you have it a Majestic Mountain block.
Thanks for sharing…I love to play with blocks too!
Cool way to make this block. Thanks for sharing it 🙂
I just did a quilt using this pattern and it was so much fun.
Versatile block, lots of possibilities.
That is a block I like to try. Greetings
Majestic Mountain is definitely on my short list of blocks to make soon. Thanks for sharing such an easy peasy tutorial!
No, no, no! I can't stop and try something new……..but……..there are those leftover triangles just sitting on the cutting table, and it would just take a couple of minutes……
Marvelous tutorial, thanks!
