Design Wall Monday

I spent quite awhile on Saturday working on Allietare.  It would be really nice to have it at least ready for borders before Bonnie releases her colors for this year's mystery, but I'm afraid that's not going to happen.  It'll be close!  

For weeks I stared at this on my design wall while working on genealogy.  
Star block for Allietare.
All of the Star blocks had been finished and this is just a sampling.  Then I'd pinned the components of the alternate block and it languished for quite awhile.  Saturday was spent getting all of that sewn, including a little unsewing and resewing.  Also sewn were the setting triangle units as this quilt is set on point.  And now, this is what is showing on my design wall.
The two blocks side x side on the design wall.
This is not how the individual blocks will be placed, I need to lay them out on the floor and move some around before sewing, but the blocks are done.  You might notice that at the top left is one of the setting blocks, but it's not properly positioned as the Star blocks will be on the outer row all around rather than the ones I refer to as the 'square' blocks.  That makes a difference in how the gray fits together.

I'll be meeting with my friend Panda later today to show her my progress and then when I get home, I can lay all the blocks out.  I might pin them to the design wall, but this is a pretty big quilt and I'm not sure there's enough room.  My vertigo has been acting up so getting up & down on a stool while looking up and down, may not be the wise thing to do.

Linking up to Patchwork Times.


  1. It may not have progressed as quickly as you would have liked, but it's looking good! Vertigo is no fun, so be careful on that stool.

  2. It looks great. Sorry about the vertigo, my sister deals with that from time to time and I know it is awful.

    I've been toying with the idea of doing Bonnie's mystery this year.
