I am beginning to work on my Earth Views quilt.  I found a pattern that lets me use large pieces of the original fabric--designed by Dr. Karen Nyberg who was a quilting astronaut on the Space Station.  For the smaller, closer-to-earth squares, I have water, rocks, trees, deserts, summer, winter, stars, etc.  Most of these came from accumulated stash left from my National Park quilts.  What I do not have, and can't find on quiltshops.com is mountains!  I do not want to buy a panel because the scale would be way off and I don't think I could even get a mountain in a 4 1/2" square! I would prefer no animals in the square. Can you suggest another place I could look for realistic mountain fabric?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, all!

what size mountain do you need?  If all you need is 4", would this work?  I put a 4.5" square next to it for scale.  I think you could crop out the campers.

Dee, the squares are cut 4 1/2" to finish at 4."  I have some other landscapes that I need to add a bit of edging to get to 4 1/2", so that's not a problem.  Your "scene" is very nice!  

BTW If anyone needs a shower curtain with mountains on it, I found one for you on Amazon.

If you want a piece, I'll be glad to send.  I don't think I have your address.  Please email to dee in tex 62 @ sbc global .net - without the spaces.

Sue,

Was it you that got a bunch of earth, space fabric & was not sure what to do with it?  I'm asking because I get Hawthorne Supply's newsletter and they featured the fabrics and showed some patterns to use them on.  Here is a link - hopefully it works.

Ooooooooo!  I love that one that looks like stained glass - Cupola Views.  Beautiful!

I agree ... truly an inspired pattern for those fabrics.
