Mystery Monday Link-up!! Allietare! Part 2

Welcome to another Mystery Monday Link-up!!  On Friday, Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com posted the second clue in her 2015 Winter Mystery.  There were hundreds of us WAITING for the release of the next step in the construction of Allietare.  I was not among them, as I had totally forgotten to check for it until late Friday afternoon!  (Oops!!  Sorry, Bonnie!)

My friend Needleb and I got together on Saturday morning to work on this installment in the Mystery. We always have SEW much FUN!!!  Sew, press, cut, repeat:


While this was a fairly manageable clue, I have decided to make only 1/4 of the components for Allietare.  I may change my mind after the reveal, but for now, this is all I feel able to manage.  Here I am, drawing the lines to prepare for sewing:


As usual, I had to go a bit further with my piecing.  Can you see the double-sewn corners?  Wouldn't want to waste usable fabric:



My "geese" units have been pressed:


But...  The sewn neutrals, are still awaiting their date with the iron (because these little off-cuts got in their way):


Can you really blame me?  Just LOOK at this adorable (tiny) HST unit:


Check back HERE for all of the previous instructions of Allietare gathered in one place. THIS LINK will take you to this week's LINK-UP.  Go have a look.  Not everyone is using Bonnie's colors and it's SEW much fun to see how everyone is progressing.

Until next time...
Be mysterious!!!

Presenting...  Allietare!  Part 2:

  1. Looking good! And those bonus triangles are adorable!
    (I can't waste fabric either. Gives me the cold shudders just thinking about it...)

  2. I have been saving my flippy corner HSTs, too! They are great to use to incorporate into a matching pillow or wall hanging.

  6. I look a bit of a mess in that pic. Hehe, I suppose I should be thankful you didn't snap a pic of the sudden rip in the back of my jeans! ROFL. Thanks for rescuing me!

    1. Nonsense. You ALWAYS look beautiful!!! Re: the rip... goodness knows that stack of jeans in the studio should be worth SOMETHING. Glad to part with a bit for the repair.
