Mountainside Quilt Kit in Smoke & Rust + Fabric Giveaway
My heart has always belonged to the mountains. From this love, the Mountainside quilt was born. The mountain blocks are made with 24 fat eighths total – 12 prints for the mountain peaks + 12 for the mountain centers. Generally, I picked out darker prints for the mountain peaks and lighter for the centers–but you can mix and match them however you’d like! Here’s how I separated mine:
The Mountainside Boxed Kit
Since Smoke & Rust yardage hit my front porch a week ago, I’ve been busy cutting up Mountainside kits. Check out these custom boxes from Packola I ordered just for the occasion–they turned out pretty cool, right?! It took three full days of living in a hat and door-dashing meals, but preorders have been fulfilled and shipped to their new homes!
If you missed out on the Mountainside preorders – good news! After going through the Smoke & Rust bolt remnants, I was able to put together an additional 9 Mountainside boxed kits. These boxed kits contain everything needed to make the Mountainside quilt top, binding, AND backing. (Includes free shipping – US only). Grab one while you can!
***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED – Congrats Gayle Miller!***
I set one of my special Mountainside boxed kits aside to give away to one of you! To enter:

Cindy RiderJune 14, 2021 at 10:32 am
Love to drive into the canyons of the Rubies to picnic and soak in their beauty and that’s a close second to just enjoying our patio & flowers when we stay home. This fabric line and quilt design are stunning. It would make a wonderful wedding gift for my granddaughter!
TheGranChrisJune 14, 2021 at 12:29 am
I love walking the dogs but the most important thing is watching birds. This time of year it’s the Humming birds. They are the best.
Patti MacJune 14, 2021 at 12:42 am
The Mountain quilt is beautiful! My favorite thing to do in the mountains is camp in the Uintas with friends next to a stream and a meadow. Last year we saw 5 moose during the week!

Hi, Vanessa! I love the outdoors, so I enjoy hiking and fishing, but my favorite is taking my jeep out on backroads & 4-wheel drive trails…It’s a chance to get to the more remote, quiet and beautiful places. My favorite trails have been mountain roads in Colorado (up over Mosquito Pass) and the logging roads on Vancouver Island.

Carol McCaigJune 14, 2021 at 6:23 am
Just being outside makes me feel like I can take a full breath of fresh air. Hiking, kayaking, dog sledding and stargazing! Sorry couldn’t choose just one. Ha, that’s a bit like choosing one piece of fabric. Impossible!
Sharon ColemanJune 14, 2021 at 6:23 am
I just ordered some of this beautiful fabric to make a new quilt for my brother. My favorite outdoor activity is hiking to see waterfalls. I don’t have much of an opportunity for this since I live in the Mississippi Delta where the land I flat for as far as you can see. 😄😄
jannglumachotmailcomJune 14, 2021 at 11:13 am
I fell in love with snow skiing 50 years ago! I moved to Colorado just to learn how and enjoy every winter season! Looking forward to next winter! Sewing is my first love but it takes a back seat once the snow flakes appear!

Darlene WegrynowskiJune 14, 2021 at 6:32 am
My favorite outdoor activity, which is not really an activity to some, is to start each morning sitting outside in my backyard with my cup of tea enjoying the views of the sky, lake and watching my Samoyeds running and playing. It is peaceful, my mind is clear and can plan my daily activities before all the craziness each day brings begins. As the morning weather cools i enjoy wrapping my self in the warmth and comfort of my quilts.
Mary ReyngoudtJune 14, 2021 at 6:33 am
Like so many, my favorite outdoor activity is hiking. Just returned fro a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons NP where we did miles and miles of hikes. I have a niece who lives in the Vermont mountains and I would love to make this quilt for her.
Brenda Jean CarlisleJune 14, 2021 at 6:35 am

Camping! In a tent!! Most people shudder when I tell them my husband and I do this every summer. We love it. I get excited every summer when I learn I can still roll out of a sleeping bag and crawl out of a tent! LOL!! This collection is fabulous and I’ve planned several quilts with it. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway, Vanessa. The box is wonderful too . . .
Patty MooreJune 14, 2021 at 7:14 am

Heide WhiteJune 14, 2021 at 7:36 am
Recently retired and a couch potato, I moved to Borrego Springs after the recent death of my husband. I met a lovely bunch of women that hike. It was quite the challenge to stay upright and keep up with these ladies! I discovered the beauty of our desert and local mountains. Too hot to hike now, so now swim and walk. My son, who loves to hike and is training to hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, which runs from the Mexico border to the Canadian border, would love to have this quilt.

JackieJune 14, 2021 at 8:31 am
Love this fabric line. I love to walk on nature trails and walk on slick rock (while on vacay, since I live in Iowa, not a lot of that here). This summer I’m trying to hit most of the state parks to see what they all offer. Just saw that my local quilt shop has this, they are closed today, so will be going over lunch hour tomorrow. 🙂

When I lived in South Dakota (the Black Hills area), I loved to camp. We had a boat, so did mostly water activities at Pactola Dam. I’m so looking forward to vacationing there with my sisters next month, where we will definitely fit in some hiking, and maybe I can get my brother-in-law to teach me fly fishing!

Paddle boarding, working in my garden, hiking, boating (just being on the water) anything outdoors! We live in a very outdoorsy state and rain, snow or shine, people will be out. The best thing about the pandemic is seeing and meeting all the people that started working out in the neighborhood. We have a huge mountain here and people will say “Oh, the mountain is out” referring to Mt Rainier. We will miss that mountain when we move!
MargaretJune 14, 2021 at 9:45 am
Walking with friends.
Christy JohnsonJune 14, 2021 at 9:46 am
Also, I made this quilt in Harvest Road fabric for one of my daughter’s childhood friend. Come to find out, her baby theme was Mountains. I found out after. I love the rust and gray colors in your quilt but couldn’t find the fabric when I needed it so I used some Harvest Road fabric that I’d had for a bit.

Imagine this Vanessa.
My sixteen year old grandson offered to take his very nervous grandma for a ride on his four-wheeler! He took me through the hills and valleys where he usually rides. I felt so blessed when he shared some of his favorite places to stop and admire the views. That ride reminds me of this quilt, which I would love to make for him. I hope it reminds him of the wonderful memory that I have as well.
Nancy A.June 14, 2021 at 12:04 pm

Favorite outdoor activity has changed over the years, so right now, it’s having evening meals on the deck. Our deck overlooks a suburban forest, so many shades of green (in Georgia)! Hiking when possible is another favorite. I have been obsessed with this fabric collection since I saw the photo that inspired it! I’ve already bought all the fabric, so don’t enter me to win the kit, but if you have a giveaway of an empty Mountainside box, I would love to win that!
Pat ThalhammerJune 14, 2021 at 4:03 pm

My favorite outdoor is hiking. My husband and I like to hike to waterfalls. We are now including our 5 year old grandson on short, kid-friendly hikes.

I love to walk on the beach in the early morning
AmandaCJune 15, 2021 at 8:31 am
My favorite outside activity is definitely camping at the lake. Granted, we have a camper so it’s more like glamping. But there is nothing more relaxing then taking a walk along the moonlit lake and seeing all the stars!

My favorite outdoor activity is walking the hills behind my house!
KimJune 15, 2021 at 9:57 am
My favorite outdoor activity is hiking in a national park with my camera and hopefully catching a nice landscape photo especially sunset or sunrise.

I love to garden and stitch quilt binding by hand in a shady spot on my porch outside. We are in the process of building a new home so there will be lots of opportunity to create new flower beds and quilts for beds .

I live in Oregon, so I have within my reach high desert mountains, coastal mountains and the beach. Being a farm girl, I am outside all day everyday. When I go on vacation camping it is to hike and bike in the mountains.

Love to read in the shade of a leafy tree!

Hiking in the woods.

Walking in the nearby state park, up our road or in the nearby subdivision. The beauty of the park and its wildlife are so relaxing and entertaining. On our road and or in the subdivision it is so much fun to see and visit with the neighbors.
Thanks for the great giveaway. Love those fabrics.

I love to take photographs with my good camera outside! Especially in the mountains!
Lisa GiesfeldtJune 15, 2021 at 4:29 pm
I enjoy sitting on the deck in the summer, tall glass of lemonade in hand, listening to the birds and enjoying the view of our gardens.
Marlene PriceJune 15, 2021 at 6:16 pm
I love riding my horse in the mountains, the smell of the pines and horses is the best!
Kristin H.June 15, 2021 at 6:53 pm
Taking my two Wheaten Terriers for a walk with my husband in the morning is a favorite time of my day. It is a great time to plan my day while taking in some fresh air. My older one is struggling with declining health, but she never misses out on the walk. I know there isn’t much time left until she leaves us, but we make the most of it by making precious memories while we can. Other than my new obsession (quilting), I love spending time in my vegetable garden!
GuadalupeJune 15, 2021 at 10:13 pm
I Love to garden and just go for a long walk. Very relaxing!
Anita SharpJune 15, 2021 at 10:56 pm
I love camping in the mountains and visiting Lake Tahoe!

I really love landscaping and taking care of my flowers and many plants. Also bird watching, especially the red cardinals. Such a lovely bird to sit, relax and watch.
Mary EricksonJune 16, 2021 at 2:12 am
Well, when I was physically capable, I loved to go on long off-road bike rides and hikes!
Annette CrainJune 16, 2021 at 7:06 am

HollyJune 16, 2021 at 7:27 am
Love white water rafting in the heat of the summer!
Judy PyperJune 16, 2021 at 7:27 am
My favorite activity is kayaking. The peaceful noises from the wildlife is calming and I love slipping around the banks to catch a glimpse of the turtles on downed logs!
SandyJune 16, 2021 at 7:40 am
After working hard in our backyard, whether it’s gardening or landscaping, we enjoy sitting back and being happy with all that’s been done!
Stephanie Z HironimusJune 16, 2021 at 7:57 am
I love gardening… and daily walks with my dog, Monica 😉
Michelle EarlsJune 16, 2021 at 8:18 am
I love snow skiing and cycling.
JodyJune 16, 2021 at 8:32 am
My favorite outdoor activity is harvest in our orchard. My husband, myself, and our three adult children run our farm and orchard and harvest is the time we see our year of hard work come to it’s reward. We are tired, dirty, and our nerves are shot, but we come together and work our hardest and laugh and love together. It is better than all the mountain, lake, ocean, and island vacations ever!
JACOBJune 16, 2021 at 10:02 am
I love looking for wildlife. I like to take nature trails but I really enjoy seeing the deer and foxes and other animals that are running around. I also just enjoy the tranquility.
SaraJune 16, 2021 at 10:04 am
Hiking with my husband and kiddo, seeing the world through his eyes (just found his shadow today – it was cute, funny, and wonderful)
Delores RastJune 16, 2021 at 10:09 am
My favorite outdoor activity is working in the flower beds – digging in the dirt. Yard work gives you time to get your thoughts together and talk to the Lord!
MarilynJune 16, 2021 at 10:26 am
I mostly enjoy working in my yard and flowers but I also enjoy riding my bicycle on the Katy Trail in Missouri.
lcdds217June 16, 2021 at 12:48 pm
I love walking and having meet and greets with all the neighborhood dogs – a very friendly bunch!

I’m from the Midwest and my best memories were spending the summer with friends and family enjoying what I consider the best “fruits” of the Midwest: the Iowa State Fair, beef on the BBQ, tomatoes, corn on the cob, cucumbers, strawberries, watermelon, and cottage cheese from the local dairy. I now live in a climate that encourages me to sew all summer. My circumstances have changed and I can no longer purchase fabric as I once did. Thank you for your giveaways and the opportunity for one of us to win!!

Strolling along the river, watching the sailboats and kayakers, walking the dogs (or vice-versa?), and chatting with our neighbors. No better place to be!
Sheila DavisJune 16, 2021 at 11:09 pm
Working outside with flowers and enjoying the birds, very relaxing. I also enjoy watching my grandkids play sports.
DeniseJune 17, 2021 at 6:27 am
My favorite outdoor activity is hiking…especially in the mountains! This mountainside quilt kit is a beautiful reminder of all our trips to the mountains.

I love being near the water-be it the beach or a lake.
SheilJune 19, 2021 at 9:52 am
I love to go walking at sunset.
Angela S BowlingJune 21, 2021 at 7:09 am
I am not much of an outdoors kind of girl, but summer time means swimming. I swim 3-5 days a week. In our pool of course. I have to have crystal clear water.
