Design Wall Monday and Allietare Mystery Linkup, January 4, 2016


Yesterday the setting triangles were assembled and positioned around Kontentment.  The four corners were simple HSTs in red.  As the day progressed the blocks were sewn into on-point rows.  I will be stitching the rows together later tonight.


In the meantime I have been auditioning the inner border.  The bright yellow pulls out the fewer bright yellow fabrics in the blocks nicely.  I think it is a winner!

These are the three fabrics that will finish Kontentment.  The red will be for the binding.  I sure have enjoyed Bonnie Hunter's 2015 Winter Mystery Allietare.  I have been doing her annual mystery since 2008.  I sure hope she shares her talent with us again later this year.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times and Bonnie at Quiltville.  The holiday break is over for me; it is back to work today!

3 Borders will be different on your Quilt. Changing it up, making it YOURS! I wonder how many will do the scalloped border like Bonnie? Work, What's that? You made great progress. I'm still making blocks and re-sewing the Setting Triangles.

It is beautiful, Sandi! I think the bright yellow fits well. Are you going to scallop the border?
I took a class once on borders and we were supposed to scallop the final one. She taught us all of the steps very clearly. But ultimately I didn't like the project, so I tore it apart to use the fabrics in something else. So I have never done a scalloped border. : )
