A Wee Quilt Show: Mountain Mist

I have a weakness for Mountain Mist patterns.  They must have been popular in our area because I have found so many of them here and lots of the wrappers:

Mountain Mist was batting offered by the Sterns and Foster Company.  Apparently in 1929, the company decided to include a free quilt pattern on the back of the wrapper:

This wrapper featured "The Bluebirds of Happiness."

Sometime in the modern era, they sold actual patterns.  This one is copyrighted 1976:

Beth loves to tease me about my abiding love of Mountain Mist patterns.  Of course I tease her about her unwavering love of anything that is clothespin or washline related 😃  

Here are some of the Mountain Mist quilts in my collection.  Sorry the photos are so bad, these are the ones I could get a hold of easily...




Tulip Bowl

I have more and eventually will feature them again!

There's a great article about the company here.
Have a safe and happy day!



  1. With your love of flowers, I can see why you love these quilts.

  2. OH these quilts are so lovely. I have a few Mountain Mist wrappers from years ago. I try to find vintage battings when I can as I like the thin vintage feeling of Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon cotton. Sometimes, if I am lucky I can split it in half to make an even lighter batting. And, I'm with Bet - I am hopelessly drawn to images of clotheslines. Can't imagine why as laundry is not my favorite thing to do. It just somehow brings me back to a simpler time.

  3. I remember Mountain Mist batting! Did they also make fiber fill for stuffed animals? I made more of that kind of thing when I was a teenager. Your collection of quilts from their patterns is wonderful, Michele!
