allietare part 5...

The last 10 days of our holiday were sadly dominated by family illness so my sewing time evaporated.  Better late than never, here is Part 5 of Bonnie Hunter's Allietare Mystery Quilt 2015. The link up to other participants is at this spot. There is lots of bulk in the middle of those four patches. Taking a cue from classic tailoring, I dug out a small chasing hammer. On a chopping board, I whacked the intersecting seams which flattened the bulk beautifully. Now the blocks just need to be trimmed and pressed. It is really hard to not peek at the final reveal now that clue 6 is posted but hope to stay off social media and keep the mystery a mystery. Happy New Year!
