|Allietare quilt top - 84x84|
Allietare was Bonnie Hunter's 2016 Quiltville Winter Mystery, and it's a beauty. At the time she published the clues for the mystery my scrap bins were pretty low on options. So, I shopped my stash for fabrics. There was enough yardage of the right colors in the stash to make a half-size Allietare using constant rather than scrappy colors.
Since I have at least four Bonnie Hunter quilt tops in the pile that still need to be quilted, I thought half size sounded good enough for me. After borders, it actually turned out much larger than I anticipated. It will fit the full size bed in the guest room perfectly!
It's a new favorite! It may be some time before it's quilted though. I seem to always be more interested in piecing than in quilting. But let's count 7.5 yards of fabric used already this year and 0 new yards purchased. Off to a good start I'd say.
