I haven’t been bashful about my love for mountains.

There are probably complete strangers who, after one encounter in a Baton Rouge park, know every mountain range I’ve called home and how much I miss higher ground.


Blue Ridge Mountains. White Mountains. Rocky Mountains. Sierras.

I’m not really picky, but those are some of my favorites. They are all far far away from me now, and when it came time to design for the second collection of pattern postcards at Quilt Theory, I thought I’d pull them a little closer and put them in a quilt.

Mountain Call Quilt on Bed

These Quilt Theory designs are simple, modern quilt patterns that fit on small cards or one-page PDFs. Even though the pattern is small, Mountain Call quilt finishes at 72″ x 90″ and drapes nicely over a twin or a double bed.  Batch sewing and easy assembly means it comes together quickly!

Mountain Call Quilt on Couch

If you can’t wait for a hard copy, PDF patterns are available now through our Quilt Theory website. Let your local quilt shop know you want them to carry Quilt Theory patterns, too!  These postcards are pretty enough to sit on your bulletin board as inspiration till you’re ready to get started.

Mountain Call Quilt Outside

To celebrate the launch of Quilt Theory, I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to the fabric store of your choice! All you have to do is leave me a comment letting me know what part of the world tugs at your heart and makes your soul sing.  Or, let me know what colors you’ll use in your Mountain Call quilt!

  1. Kathe Gardner

    Love your design – my most favorite place is Alabama – so green and lush you can see it when you cross their border from any side of the state.

  2. Sarah

    I love how simple, but still striking this quilt is! For me, the ocean will always have my heart and soul, especially the Atlantic, but really any body of water will soothe. Even a puddle! 😀

  3. Sarah @berrybarndesigns

    I know you know I’m going to say the ocean ; ) But really that mountain/ocean juxtaposition type of ocean, like in Maine, is what gets me. Hiking a peak while looking out over stunning sea views.

  4. Mary O.

    I would say that Olympic National Park in Washington state makes my heart sing because of the stunning Ruby beach, the lush Hoh Rainforest and the view of the Olympic mountains from Hurricane Ridge. Just remembering my visit there relaxes me. Also, I really like your fabric choices for your Mountain Call quilt.

  5. Tina Harris

    I’d have to say the Green Mountains of Vermont are my favorite. The White Mountains would rank second and the Cascade Mountain Range third! I was drawn to your quilt when I first saw the photo on Night Quilter’s website. Love it and would probably have to make it in some subtle shades of green and white. Peace!

  6. Rochelle Summers

    I love where I am now….Northern Nevada with a view of the Sierra Nevada mountains that NEVER gets old. My heat gives a sigh of happiness when I return from visits to other locations. Love this quilt and could see it in grayish purples and grayish blues.

  7. Beth T.

    I live in the Pacific NW now, but I grew up in Southern Cal, and deep down those beaches will always feel like home.  

  8. Pat T.

    Congratulations on a wonderful design!!
    I love the fabrics/color choices you made!… I think I’d like to make Mountain Call in blues and greens, too…
    The “little finger” area of Michigan holds my heart!… Lake Michigan beaches, the Sand Dunes, Lake Leelanau and Leland, great high rolling hills… Yes!

  9. Liz Horgan

    We don’t travel much, so I just love to sit on my front porch and enjoy the nature around me!
    Great collection of patterns!

  10. Liz

    I’m going to say the mountain range of Massachusetts… it’s where I call home, I live right underneath one part or one of them! I would think for a color range it would have to start with a blue sky! Then go on to the gray/black/browns of the mountains! 

  11. Pam

    Mountain call is beautiful and striking, and I appreciate your inspiration for it. ! Thanks so much for sharing this, and for your beautiful blog. I love anyplace in the world with a coastline. I could stare at the waves forever.

  12. Jean McKinstry

    The mountain pattern reminds me of the Southern Alps here in the South Island of New Zealand. A long range, 500kms from south to north, the highest peak is Mt Cook, at 12,218 feet (3724 metres ) asl. There are more than 3000 glaciers over one hectare ( 2.5 acres) in size , the longest is Tasman Glacier at 29 kms. long. So this pattern is one that signifies our colours, so many of our countries sports teams are called either Black Sticks ..or Silver Ferns, or All Blacks… or All Whites. I would use those colours you chose, and make it a truly New Zealand quilt.

  13. Laura

    I’d love to go to Austria to visit my son who is studying there. Every photo has shown how beautiful it is. The old buildings have spectacular features. And it would be a chance to walk about in castles.

  15. Denise in PA

    I’m loving the Quilt Theory patterns! What part of the world has my heart is so easy…my husband’s homeland of Scotland. It just speaks to me and I can’t get there enough!!

  16. Janet T

    Although I live in California, and there are so many beautiful places on this earth to visit, my heart tugs where my grandchildren live.

  17. Delaine

    There is a small town in British Columbia in the Canadian Rockies called Radium Hot Springs. My soul sings everytime we go there because it is just so laid back and relaxing. The scenery there is awesome, the restaurants are fantastic and the golfing is spectacular! Thanks!

  18. Susan Spiers

    Very nice pattern-England calls to me! My parents were originally from there. Aunts & uncles & cousins all live there- I yearn for the greenery, landscapes & my family I miss so very much!

  19. Michele T

    The Swiss Alps captured my heart when we travelled through Europe 3 years ago… I would love to return!!!

  20. Fireside Quilter

    We have travelled across Canada and I fell in love with the Gaspe region of Quebec!! Beautiful scenery, people, and food (although I can’t eat poutine anymore!!).

  21. Carol

    Love this quilt. I live in the shadow of some big mountains in Salt Lake City. They are beautiful. I might try a green and brown version of this quilt.

  22. Leanne Parsons

    I love all of the new Quilt Theory patterns! While I do enjoy the majesty of mountains, I’m an ocean girl at heart. If I can see, hear and smell the ocean then I’m happy 🙂

  23. Shauna T.

    I love the mountains too, especially the Great Smoky Mountains, but I think what really calls me is the beaches of North Carolina. I have no desire to sun bath at the beach, but I love watching the sun rise over them and hearing the waves crash.

  24. Frieda

    I love the Blue Ridge mountains. This summer we are going to the Alps in Switzerland. I think I would use blues to make this quilt.  I love the Quilt Theory patterns.

  25. DeborahGun

    Oh I absolutely love your design. The mountains call to me too as I grew up in the mountains in India and now live in the mountains in Indonesia. But at heart I think I am a beach girl!

  26. Rosalind Gutierrez

    The ocean speaks to me with its gorgeous blue aqua colors which are perfect for a quilt.

  27. Kelly Davis

    My favorite place is the Mountains. Smokey or Rockies. I didn’t see a mountain until I was 14 and traveled to visit our grandparents. Such grandeur. The lyrics came to life “Purple mountains majesty”. Stole my heart and have yet to give it back.

  28. Bonnie Larson

    I’m a prairie girl at heart. I love the majesty of the mountains but am free when I am on the plains. Love your quilt. Thanks for sharing

  29. Veronika B

    i love so many places of the world! Czech Republic is my heritage so that always has a special place in my heart. And I love this quilt! For colors I would want to try some neutrals in the beige range (I never thought I’d willingly make a quilt with beige as a main color!) and mixed with some maroony shades with hints of purple? Yep that’s what I’m going with!

  30. Debbie Miller

    I’m originally from western NC so the Blue Ridge Mountains call me home. I would have to make this quilt in multiple shades of blue.

  32. Julie Averill

    Even though I have never been there…..yet…..I love the thought of Hawaii.

  33. Emily

    Fabulous mountain pattern! I love the mountains and the peace I find looking at peaks. I live near the Blue Ridge, so I would use shades of blues and purples and maybe some grays.

  34. sharon

    I like asia, china, hong kong, tawain, japan, korea

    so much to see and do. I love your quilt esp in black, white, grey

  35. Sue

    Love the mountain pattern. I’d make it in rusts and blues. The colors of the sandstone in South Dakota.

  36. Kathy h

    I love the mountains we saw in Alaska. I would use those blacks and whites too, love how your quilt turned out.

  37. Melanie

    I love the Redwoods in CA…they were amazing! I want to make the quilt…just like yours…it would be perfect for my living room!
