Design Wall Monday


I've gone back to working on my Athena's Puzzle quilt.  This is only a small part of the blocks I've finished, and there will be many more.  If anyone has seen this design completed, you know that they actually are set on the diagonal.  However they're sewn together in straight rows and then trimmed.

There will be lots of waste, but I'm sure I can find a use for the partial blocks.

It's an easy pattern; the only tricky thing is sewing the strips in the right order and orientation, but now that I have worked out a system, it's going fairly quickly, and has reached that nice, relaxed, flow state of sewing.

I have a friend who is doing this one. She is pulling her hair out! I think I have seen it for about 2 years at our retreats.........

But it is truly beautiful!

Wonderful colors you chose for this design--so rich and commanding. Glad you've reached a zen state with Athena!

I love the Greek Keys design. I can't wait to see it finished.

This is one of those block designs that you have to think before stitching. Well done.

This is really nice, I just may get brave and try one.

You could do plain batik side triangles and it would still be dramatic.

That is a really dynamic pattern. I love the colors too-adds to the drama. I like it on point better so thanks for that shot.
