A friend of mine has a beautiful view of Quandary Peak from her home. It is breathtaking. I could sit there all day snuggled on the couch watching the sunlight play across the mountain. I wouldn’t call my mountain stained glass sun catcher “breathtaking” but it does look great hanging in a window. It too changes with the moving sunlight. Every time I look at it I am reminded of the wonderful majestic mountain view and the wonderful time I had at my friend’s Colorado home.
There are many mountain stained glass suncatcher styles. This is my version. Well, actually, I made several versions. I created three different mountain patterns, plus two variations for a total of five patterns. The size is 8.5 wide by 6.5 to 7 inches high depending on the pattern. I, of course, made mine in blue and green, my favorite colors. But, I think it would look great in almost any combination of colors. All clear textured glass could have a very interesting look as well.
This is an easy beginner pattern. As an added bonus, it is great for using small stained glass pieces as well as scrap glass leftover from other projects. Don’t we all have a box full of that!
This pattern is for sale in my shop as a digital instant download here: Mountain Patterns. It includes 2 pdf documents. One has all the patterns. The second PDF file has many of the helpful hints and tips I have acquired over many years of experience. It is not an instructional tutorial and assumes you have a basic knowledge of how to create a stained glass copper foiled project. My patterns are for personal use only. Please do not make or distribute copies of the pattern or teach the project. You are welcome to sell pieces made from my patterns, but if you post a picture online kindly credit the design to Glass Art by Margot.
