The inspired block

I haven't accomplished a lot this past week, as I am having a lot of pain from tendonitis.  Hopefully by taking a break from sewing and yard work I can get past it.  So no major art project again this week, just a single block I wanted to do.
A few days ago I mentioned inspiration from the delectable mountain block for my AK quilt.

Here's what I came up with for the block of the Matanuska Glacier view.   It's about 15 inches by 12 inches overall.     I like the effect of the block versus the applique.  Fused and machine appliqued, I should say.  I just free hand cut the snow and the tree line for the foreground.   I will probably do a couple more of this type for the AK quilt.
Till then, happy stitches.

I really like it! Especially the effect of the sky against the applique. It has an eerie 'northern' feel to it. Hope your tendonitis clears up soon.
