Purple Mountains Majesty

 Scrappy purple mountains.  I went through every purple I had to make these mountains.
Some were scraps that were gifted to me, some came from my yardage where I cut off  a 1.5 inch stripe.
In the top photo I was going for dark mountains in the front with medium in the middle and light in the back to show how things in the distance are always lighter in color to the eye.

I drew these pointy mountains on paper then paper pieced them together.
My goal was to have all the dark fabrics on the left since the sun is shining on the right.
While piecing though, I ended up flipping one around. Whoops!  I left it like it was.

You can see a hint of the Oregon trail block under these mountains.
