Flashback Friday: Go Tell It On the Mountain


Today we are beginning a month of Flashback Fridays “Quilts for the Seasons,” making over past quilts with traditional colors for the holidays.  The gorgeous and timeless Go Tell It On the Mountain by Chef Konda Luckau takes the stage today.

The delectable mountains block is one every quilter should have in her bag of tricks! Konda’s original version uses some yardage and a layer cake. We’ve substituted printed layer cakes for Bella Solids to show off the holiday red and green.

Bella Solids shown are cut from yardage of Betty’s Green {9900-121} and Scarlet {9900-47}, lending a 1930s flair to our Christmas palette.

    So how much yardage of each would one need to make this Holiday version?

    Just follow the sentence “See the original recipe here”, below the picture, then click on “here” and the whole tutorial unfolds before your very eyes with all the measurements you might want to know (or not)

      the original tutorial only has directions using the layer cake. I wanted to know how much yardage would be needed of the red and green. I couldn’t find that in the directions. If it is there could someone point me to it? thanks

        There’s gotta be a chart somewhere. I want to know too, also size for smaller version. Need to make a baby quilt & I really like this pattern.

    @Pam in Illinois
    Sorry, you must think that I referred to your question. Look at the date my comment was posted, I wanted to answer the post from Bev (Dec.6)- I don’t know why my post moved inbetween the Dec. 6th posts.
    Sorry also I cannot tell you about the yardage needed.
