Design Wall Monday - Allietare

The push is on to finish Allietare (Bonnie Hunter's 2015 mystery) before her 2016 mystery starts in November! 
I want to at least get the blocks sewn together. I didn't sew the setting triangle blocks and have decided to use a black Jo Morton print instead. I have all the setting triangles cut and the blocks are going up on the design wall. This is how it is looking today. Yum!

I was at the London Friendship Quilters' Guild show on the weekend and saw a finished Allietare sewn by Maureen Haynes. She even made the scalloped edges! Seeing this quilt totally inspired me to finish mine.
SO I put aside the Circa challenge, and am throwing myself into Allietare this week.
I'll be over at my sewing machine if you need me!

  8. I like the black inset triangles on your quilt. I don't participate in mystery quilt projects, but I do save the patterns just in case. I have Alletaire saved and maybe someday I'll sew one too. Have a great day! Blessings, Gretchen

  15. Good call on the setting triangles. I like the black in there, but then I love black most everywhere! : )
    When I do a Bonnie design I often opt for simpler borders than hers. For one thing I run out of energy for the quilt by the time I get to the borders. For another, I like to give the eye a place to rest.
