More Allietare!

When I pulled out Allietare to begin sewing yesterday, I didn't know I hadn't pressed open all the half square triangles...so I did that first.

The I made a pile of these little units - I did a pretty good job of matching points and corners...

While was busy, the doggies decided to share Cooper's bed and wrestle a bit.

I have now made enough parts and pieces to see what the two blocks will look like!

I really love this pattern! I need to make more units (especially the ones I made Sunday). I scaled up my version of Bonnie Hunter's pattern - based on 2.5" strips instead of 2" strips. So I knew I would make fewer blocks than she called for. And I'm not planning for my quilt to be as big as her's either. 
I'm basically just winging how many units I need. So I'll start making blocks, and making more sub-units until......I have enough!

I also made a double batch of Chocolate Banana Bread - I found the recipe on Pinterest here - it's SO good!

Today is Hexie day!!!!


  1. blocks look great, I made a baby quilt at around 1/4 the amount of blocks, so I made more blocks once the mystery was solved.... did you see my hello kitty version of it?

  2. Looking good! Love the colors you are using. I made mine in her colorway. It was my first mystery with her so I didn't want stray too far away. In making this, I found I am not a super scrappy person. I like my quilts more "controlled" scrappy. If I do this year's mystery, I will probably only use a few different fabrics of each color, not as many as I did with this one.

  3. Chocolate Banana Bread! Yum! I never thought to do that. I'll have to try it next time I see bananas on the day-old cart at the grocery!
