Mountain Peak Quilt Block

This Mountain Peak block is also known as Snowflake and Snow Block.  I found the pattern free on-line at: block is set on point.  It is the 12th block of my Starwood Quilt, made to tell the story of my home and community.  I made this quilt as a block of the month with my quilting group, made up mostly of teachers. 

Colorado has more 14,000 foot mountain peaks (14'ers) than any other state.  There are 53 peaks that are ranked.  (My husband, the mountain climber, explains that "ranked" means the peak must rise at least 300 feet above the saddle that connects it to the nearest 14'er.)   

We are taking care of our ten-week-old grandpuppy while his parents are out of town.  It has been awhile since we've had a baby in the house.  Tablecloth corners are folded back up over the table to prevent an accident.  The stairs are blocked.  There is a squirrel (with an acorn that squeaks), an elephant, and a raccoon scattered around the house, along with dog bones and a ball.  Bowls for water and food are in the kitchen.  Both grandpa and grandpuppy are in the living room taking a nap.  Playing in the snow is tiring!
