Have you seen the Fat Quarter Shop series called Classic & Vintage?
Well this time around they are using Delectable Mountains quilt block. You can find the FREE block pattern here.
I hardly make classic blocks but this one caught my eye and I decided to challenge myself and participate.
I asked my friend Monika for help as I wanted to set it off center. She kindly provided me with coloring page. If you would like one yourself go to my google doc here.
I like to switch between cutting and sewing so I was making blocks by colors.
I also wanted to show you that you can play with the background fabric as well. I hope you see the potential.
Do not worry. Not all the blocks have perfect points and I had to redo 3 last blocks since I was not happy with my fabric choice. See for yourself.
Here are useful links where you can find all you need to make your own version:

Complete pattern ($4.98)

Have you noticed there is one purple block lighter? I bet you didn't, lol.
My gang was asking me if I ran out of the other fabric. Nope. I wanted to make it more interesting. Just something that will make you wonder :)
If you would like to see close up of the fabrics used, please check out my scrappy post here and here.
These are mostly local no brand fabrics.
Thank you Fat Quarter Shop for your fun hop!
