Scrappy Majestic Mountains

I finally was able to get a full photo of this top:

This pattern is from Bonnie Hunter and you can find it here.  I loved making this pattern and will make another one down the road using a different layout.

The stars were an unexpected addition .... no, who is kidding here .... they are my trademark now.  This is the 6th top that has these stars in them.  I'm not finished with this star.  It will have to run its' course.

Speaking of stars .... guess what is gracing our living room window?  Yes, my star templates.  They are there to prevent birds from crashing into our window and they are working.  Yesterday, I saw a bird hovering in front of the window before flying up and away.   The black cat cut-out wasn't doing the job, so with the addition of the stars, birds now think twice before trying to fly through our window.
One green striped border is on my Granddaughter's Garden.  I think the math has been figured out for mitered corners, but we will see once another border gets attached.
 Have a great day!

That is a very Canadian quilt - both in its colours, and in its tribute to your mountains. The stars are a great addition! Perhaps I should try something similar on our back window as sometimes a bird crashes into it - but so far, we have had no fatalities.

I love your quilt!

It is a beauty. I've always loved the delectable mountains block and the appliques between really set off that space so well.

I love your red mountain and stars quilt! The stars make it even more beautiful!

Where can I find the pattern with the stars? It's not on Bonnie's site. Thank you! :)
