Welcome to the Link-Up for BOMs Away Mondays!
We'd love to see the BOM you're working on lately.
This week's link-up is at the bottom of the post.
So, I got all my Allietare center assembled, and I'm really happy with it. I wasn't sure about the color change-up at first when I laid the blocks all out, but Marissa liked it, and lots of folks on Facebook really liked it, too. After some overnight marinating, it really grew on me. I agree that it has a Spanish look now, but I'm still calling it Allietare. :)
I didn't get a photo of the assembled and trimmed center before it got dark, but you get the idea here.
Bonnie's design calls for a stop border in the teal of my color way, followed by a solid border in black. I do have enough black left, but it really overpowers this colorway. The only color that has enough remaining for a border is the gold set. It looks a little sad, though, with just that, so I played around with my EQ program to come up with a way to use some of the little bonus HSTs from all those decapitated geese patches.
So now I'll be making some 110 of these bitty units for a border treatment in the gold:
Yep. Those are tiny HSTs in the end! They are 1/2" finished. I think I've lost my mind. But I have all 330 that I need meticulously trimmed, and maybe half of the rest of the pieces cut out.
So, there's more work to be done on this mystery quilt before I get back to my normally-scheduled BOMs, but I'm happy with my border design, and looking forward to finishing it this week!
Have you worked on any BOMs or similar projects lately?
We'd love to see your progress or plans.
