USA Block Tour - Pennsylvania

October 18, 2020
Welcome to week 12 at Faith and Fabric, the next stop on the Around the Block US Tour! If you’re new here, welcome! Faith and Fabric is a Christian quilt company specializing in Christian quilt patterns, fabrics, and sewing classes. If you’ve been there before, Jen warmly welcomes you back.  

Onto the block. Jen grew up on the east coast of the United States in central New Jersey, a wonderfully green state where everyone, it seemed, had large back yards and the most amazing back yard gardens. It’s no wonder the state motto is “The Garden State”! Almost all our family lived in northeast Pennsylvania, and we drove multiple times each year to visit them, always through the breathtaking Pocono mountains.

She has so many memories of watching the seasons change on these gorgeous hillsides – in the spring at Easter, they were full of the brightest hues of new green and growth. During the winter, the sheer rocks shined bright black against the layer of ice that covered them as the mountains sat in a hushed layer of snow. The fall, though…the fall was her favorite. The vibrant, crisp reds, oranges, and yellows of all the trees captivated my visual senses as they made the two hour journey over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house! The mountains are so beautiful, they’ve even been voted the fourth best destination for fall foliage in the USA. This amazing image, from Mountaintop Lodge in the heart of the Poconos, brings back so many memories of those drives.

It’s these warm memories that inspired her quilt block. She wanted to capture the height of the rolling hills, as one mountain seems to meld into the second. And to capture the warmth of the leaves, from the deep red leaves closest to the road to the lighter yellows higher up on the mountain. 

You can find her tutorial here (there is NO pattern), just the tutorial
