allietare part 6... the reveal


Here is my Part 6 of Bonnie Hunter's Allietare Mystery Quilt 2015. These blocks are not sewn. I'm just throwing the parts up on the design wall and starting to play with the combinations. Am definitely going to do something different from BH's quilt for a border. What that design is remains to be conceived. It is so much fun to see how everything is meant to go together. That orange print that was a concern is strong but as suggested bounced around will give the top a lot of life. The colours look pretty great together so it's all worked out to be a very happy surprise.You can see everyone else's beautiful versions of Allietare here and the gorgeous original below. Mystery quilts- one more thing checked off the quilting bucket list... Thank you Bonnie!

    1. Thank you Andee. Will have to be very disciplined as arranging all those tiny parts is more fun than sewing them together:)

    1. Thanks Sujata! It was interesting to see how people's geography mimicked their fabric colours.
